Art Exhibit and Reception at Wakulla Welcome Center
February 3, 2013 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Wakulla Welcome Center in Panacea is pleased to present a new art exhibit and reception featuring the Apalachee Bay Fire Station Art Group.
Most Tuesday mornings you’ll find as many as twenty busy artists at the Shell Point Volunteer Fire Department. Locals and folks as far as Tallahassee gather from 9 – 12 am for art class. Unlike most classes, there are no lectures or assignments. Teacher Nell Schultz helps anyone who asks, and she volunteers her talent with a smile. Group members also encourage and help each other, especially newcomers, in their artistic growth.
The group began some fifteen years ago and while the artists vary in age, most are retired. Watercolor is the medium of choice for most of the painters, but several also use acrylics…. Each year, members donate paintings for fundraisers: the S.C. Regatta, the Senior Center, Wakulla Library, and Wakulla Springs. They also painted bowls for the recent Empty Bowl Project.
The painters contribute a small amount weekly to the fire department for use of the building, electricity, and water. A few times a year spouses are invited to a potluck lunch.
As one visitor observed, “The artistic talent in our community is amazing.”
Please join us on Sunday, February 3, 2013, from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the Wakulla Welcome Center in Panacea.
