On Saturday, May 3, 25 local artists presented an impromptu display at the Raney Carriage House organized by sculptor Clarice Powell. The show was the brainchild of Lynn Wilson, president of the Artists of Apalachicola Association, and painter Susan Richardson.
The show was sponsored by the Artists Association and the Pastel Association of Apalachicola, of which Wilson was a founding member.
“We’re together for creative spirit and camaraderie,” said Wilson. “We don’t want politics. Our goal is to be open to all local artists working in any medium and to be inclusive. We plan to display local art in local venues.”
Wilson said the artists association hopes to collaborate with Marie and Willoughby Marshall to use the Apalachicola Museum of Art as a site for future shows.
