Art Walk showcases artsy side of Forgotten Coast

“It was an awesome day for the shelter,” said Gena Wich, who serves on the Board of Directors as secretary. “Many people stopped to play with the animals and ask questions about the shelter, which is what we were hoping for.”

Entertainment for the event was provided by Slim Fatz, whose mellow blues were a perfect fit for the sunny day.

In previous years the artists were spread out along Highway 98 but Lowery said that the event benefitted from being concentrated in a central area and planned to take the same approach in the future.

In looking toward next year’s event Lowery also planned to offer a longer registration period for artists in order to get more interest from surrounding regions.

“The humane society was a really nice addition,” said Lowery. “Between the Art Walk and the Gumbo Cook-off, it was a great day for Mexico Beach.”
