Plein Air Artists
In collaboration with the St. George Island Paint Out group, we hosted an artists' reception following their plein air painting weekend event: Art & Wine Splash, in October 2020. Three of the five participating artists - Cory Wright, Craig Reynolds and Mary O. Smith - agreed to stay on at the gallery with a selection of paintings, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The outdoor reception combined with indoor plein air art show proved to be such a happy combination, that in May of 2021 we collaborated with SGI Paint Out again, this time by hosting the opening and closing receptions for an amazing week-long event with fifteen artists participating. Along the way, over $1200 was raised for Franklin County schools art programs. We are again very honored that two more plein air artists - Lynn Mehta and David Diaz - agreed to stay on with a selection of work.
