The third annual Art Walk, hosted by the Society of Expressive Artists (SEA) will be held from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. CT on Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Beach Walk shopping area in Mexico Beach.

The event will showcase more than 20 artists from Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe and along the Forgotten Coast as they display their talents and sell their wares.

Rather than be spread out along U.S. Highway 98 as in years past, the bulk of artists will be stationed near the Fish House Restaurant and spill down the road as far as The Grove gift shop.

“The event is going to be a little more centrally located this year,” said SEA president and owner of the Seagrass Gallery, Dolores Lowery. “We felt like if we were all together, people wouldn’t have to walk so far.”

Those showcasing their talents will do so across a myriad of mediums and will feature art from creators who work in encaustic, watercolor and acrylic paints, along with photographers, crafters and jewelers.

This will be the second year showcasing for Gretchen Mayes, a fused glass artist from St. Joe Beach. The artist has been working with glass since 2006, first inspired when she stepped into a glass gallery in San Antonio, Texas.
