CAA Announces Winter Artists & New Gallery Location
The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) is proud to announce the 18 local artists recently chosen to exhibit their original work in The Foster Gallery’s Winter rotation, which runs December 14, 2020 through March 3, 2021 in its new Grand Boulevard location.
The selected artists are Melody Bogle, Gayle Campbell, Jose Cantu, Andrea Chipser, Donnelle Clark, Skip Deems, Kim Eifrid, Pamela GaVette, Iva Jazayeri, Linda Kernick, Betsy Latham, Sarah Page, William Polley, Mary Redmann, Kathleen Schumacher, and Jenna Varney. The gallery is also pleased to feature hand-crafted jewelry from local artisans Hardwear Merry and The Salty Sparrow.
All artists are members of the Cultural Arts Alliance and each will exhibit and sell their work in their own section of the gallery. Many works are also available for viewing and purchase on the CAA website at CulturalArtsAlliance.com/foster-gallery. Curbside pick-up is now available.
The new Grand Boulevard location is at 495 Grand Boulevard, Suite J104, next to Chico’s and across from Tommy Bahama. The public is welcomed to an official come-and-go “open house” on Saturday, December 18th to enjoy refreshments while shopping for holiday gifts, including sculpture, ceramics, paintings, photography, and jewelry.
“We are thrilled for this move to a new location in the heart of Grand Boulevard, which will provide us an opportunity to host special exhibitions, classes, and events,” said CAA Executive Director Jennifer Steele. “The CAA is grateful for our long-term partnership with Grand Boulevard and their support of the Arts and artists in our community.”
Founded in May 2016, The Foster Gallery is an artist collective led by the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County that features at least a dozen artists on a seasonally rotating basis, along with special exhibits and invitationals throughout the year. Named for the late Susan Foster, founder of the Cultural Arts Alliance and one of the area’s first professional artists and gallery owners, The Foster Gallery also symbolizes the support the CAA strives to provide for artists in our community.
The gallery is open daily from 12 p.m. until 7 p.m. For more information, call 850.837.3037 or visit CulturalArtsAlliance.com.
