The reactions to Erickson’s art are at times more exciting than the creative process. She feels it reminds viewers why they live in Gulf County and lets them be reacquainted with the local settings.

“The art gives a whole different view of the area. It lets the locals see the beauty through an artist’s eyes,” she said.

“As artists, it allows us to capture a fleeting moment in time,” added DeWaard, “It preserves history.”

The Plein Air Paint-Out takes place from May 2-12 at various locations along the Forgotten Coast, from Alligator Point to Mexico Beach.
