Wilson ’s works, often done plein air, are realistic landscapes built around the working waterfront, historic local structures and the natural beauty of the barrier islands, beach and swamp.

While she has painted for many years, Wilson recently embraced her artistic ambitions and threw herself into painting full time after selling the Coombs House Inn.

She is a founding member of the Apalachicola Pastel Association and founding president of the Artists of Apalachicola.

Bunny Ison, chair of the Plantation Arts Committee, said the show would run until Labor Day. She said in planning the show, her goal was to display the work of artists who reside here full-time.

The exhibition is open to Plantation homeowners and guests, and visitors renting a home in the Plantation .

For security reasons, the Plantation Room remains locked when no event is in progress, but for the duration of the summer art show, it will be opened from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursdays.

A number of works sold during Sunday’s premiere. Ison said all four artists have committed to providing replacements for pieces sold throughout the duration of the exhibit, so the walls of the Plantation Room will remain full the entire summer.
