GCAA Outdoor Art Market returns on Sept. 19; Local artists to exhibit at Gulf Shores Presbyterian Church
It’s time to get outside and enjoy the arts. With the beautiful coastal weather and so many talented artists, the GCAA Outdoor Art Market will present the works of local and regional artists on September 19 at the Gulf Shores First Presbyterian Church 309 E 21st Ave., Gulf Shores.
All tents will be 6 feet apart and vendors will be wearing masks. Visitors are also encouraged to wear masks and sanitizing stations will be set up at several points at the venue. With these guidelines in place, the event should be a fun and safe open-air opportunity to view and buy local and regional art.
Among those displaying their art will be Julie Liepelt, Anne Webb and Anne Morrison.
Julie is primarily a watercolorist, but she also works with small crafts such as hand-created pottery as well as sea turtle wall hangings from oyster shells and sea glass. As a painter, she is drawn to animals and plant forms. It’s not surprising that her artwork reflects the things she embraces and living in Gulf Shores, the coast has presented a feast of natural beauty for her to explore creatively.
Anne Webb is a potter from Magnolia Springs. Her work speaks for itself. For more than thirty years, Anne has been turning out the most beautiful, cutting edge pottery in the area. She creates both utilitarian pottery and very creative, unique pieces that make her one of the most collected potters along the Gulf Coast.
Anne Morrison, a Fairhope resident, has been creating jewelry for five years. She uses fresh water pearls and gemstones from all over the world. She selects wood from Africa and Indonesia and uses India mala beads to create some of the most unique jewelry in the coastal area.
