Busy Week coming up for Gulf County

“It’s a birthday for the whole community,” said event coordinator Dana Boyer. “We need the whole community to contribute.”

If you’re feeling truly inspired by a week’s worth of art, painter Greg LaRock will be teaching his own class, “Guiding the Eye” at the Wetroom on May 12 and 13 at 9 a.m. ET. The fee for his workshop is $200 and registration can be completed online. Attendees will learn how to create focal points in their art in order to stimulate the senses of the viewer.

Plein Air’s finale, “Art in the Afternoon” is a family-friendly event also taking place on Saturday. Starting at 11 a.m. ET at the Wetroom, the eventwill feature art activities for the kids and light refreshments for all.  This is the final opportunity to purchase plein air art and bid farewell to the artists (until next year, of course).

As several great events end, another is just on the horizon.

On May 18 Gulf County will celebrate the twenty-third annual Tupelo Honey Festival at Lake Alice Park in Wewahitchka. Taste or take home some of the country’s finest honey. Food vendors, arts and crafts and live music acts will be on hand to celebrate the hard work of the honeybee.

With so much to do and see over the coming days and weeks, you won’t want to waste a moment of time indoors.
