In May, artist Dolores Lowery realized a long-time dream when she opened the Seagrass Art Gallery in Mexico Beach’s The Grove.

Teaching since 2009, the full-time, self-taught artist has spent time in Gulf and Franklin County schools hosting workshops and using art to teach special needs students.

After taking note at the lack of local galleries or art classes in Mexico Beach, Lowery set out to be the first.

After securing a lease at The Grove she set up shop and has received support from the locals and tourists over the last month.

“It’s been great,” said Lowery. “We’ve had lots of traffic through since opening.”

She aims to be hosting art classes by the summer and has plans for a three-hour acrylic class where she delivers a theme, but and allows the artist to make it their own.

Lowery plans for the classes to be accessible to artists of all levels and will package all materials into the cost.
