Apalachicola merchants are saying it was the biggest Artwalk ever.

On Saturday, over 50 artists from Franklin County and beyond took part in the ninth annual Artwalk. The weather was ideal with blue skies and temperatures hovering at 70 degrees.

The number of artists displaying their wares was down a bit from last year but the quality of work on display was excellent.

Visiting artists included Jean Marie McDonnell, of Daphne, Ala. ; Linda Rabon of Havana , Marta Elam Dorton of Lexington, Ky. and Denise Callaghan of Ontario , Canada who said she traveled here specifically for the event.

Local galleries put their best face forward for the swarm of visitors.

The Cotton Exchange hosted demonstrations and exhibited work by local painters Lynn Spohrer, Susan Richardson, Ed Springer and Pam Corcoran.

New this year were awards for best in show in the divisions of fine art, pop art and photography. Entries were judged by three anonymous volunteers who visited booths and galleries.
