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 Noon – 7pm and located in Grand Boulevard Town Center.
Founded in 1996 by glass artist Russ Gilbert, Fusion Art Glass has grown to represent over one hundred and fifty North American artists. Focusing on small, independent studios and quality craftsmanship each piece is individually created with excellence in mind. Gallery locations in Seaside and Grand Boulevard Town Center.
Justin Gaffrey is an artist who challenges himself in vast mediums. Although, his primary body of work is executed in heavy acrylic impastos often 1-6 inches thick. Justin works in his studio outfitted with a full metal and wood working shop creating freestanding sculptural works and sculptural paintings. Justin’s work is loose and expressive but underplayed with intense study and practice. Justin’s work can be an emotional landscape of his home in northwest Florida, to life size human skeletons, exposing a confused and beautiful life. His gallery is conveniently located on Scenic Hwy 30A in Blue Mountain Beach.
