2nd Annual Member Exhibition: Presented by Artists of Apalachicola Area Association

The Apalachicola community and surrounding areas are invited to come out and see the Artists of Apalachicola Area Association (AAA) present their 2nd Annual Member Exhibition scheduled for May 1 – May 17, 2015, at The Apalachicola Museum of Art/Fry Conter House at 96 5th Street in the Historic City of Apalachicola.

The exhibition will open with a wine reception at 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Friday, May 1 and open again next from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Saturday, May 2.  Afterwards the 17-day exhibition will be on display during museum hours: Wednesday – Sunday, May 3 - May 17, from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

AAA was originally founded in 2007 with artists from the Alice Jean Studio and Lynn Wilson Workshops, to serve as an organization that would sponsor and promote local artists, classes, and scholarships for the Franklin County and surrounding area community.

AAA became reactivated in 2014 when it set new goals to expand, to include not only the original visual arts of traditional painting, pastel and watercolor, but also sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fiber arts, as well as performing arts of music, voice, poetry, acting and dance.

With the opening of its first members show in May 2014 at the Raney House Museum’s Carriage House, AAA launched its new expanded presence to also include local artists from other parts of the county and nearby adjoining areas.

The mission of AAA is to support the Apalachicola community as a destination for local cultural and artistic excellence for local children, residents, and visitors to be enriched and enlightened, and to strengthen the local economy through hosting events such as their second annual show.

You don't want to miss the exhibition; it’s an excellent opportunity to see the work of talented local artists on display.
