“It doesn’t matter what your experience level is,” she said, “you’re going to learn something new every time you paint.”

In her never-ending mission to support local arts, Lowery founded and is President of the Society of Expressive Artists.

Formed in 2011, the group meets once a month to network, share techniques and raise awareness for local art-based opportunities.

Each year the SEA group hosts an art walk in Mexico Beach immediately following the Gumbo Cook-off. Tents line highway 98 and beneath them, local artist showcase their wares. This year the group plans to hold a second event, which is currently in the works.

SEA is open to local artists across the coast and can visit Lowery at her gallery for more information.

Lowery is also a staple of the Art Happens initiative, a new group that will host small, art-centric events across the Forgotten Coast. Each event will feature a different medium in one of the area’s most picturesque locations.

“It’s all about promoting the arts throughout the area,” said Lowery. “Art opens people’s minds and creative spirit. It stimulates critical thinking and unifies people.”
