On the Waterfront Gallery
On the Waterfront Gallery is located in the Northwest Gulf Coast of Florida in historic Apalachicola, noted for its fresh oysters. The gallery is host to many artist workshops and exhibits. Established in 2000 by Artists Lynn Wilson and Alice Jean Anderson (Gibbs), the gallery was originally located at the Historic Montgomery Building on the corner of Ave E and Market Street. In October 2014 the gallery re-opened in a new 6,000 square feet headquarters at 117 Market Street. The art gallery is dedicated to the fine arts of the Forgotten Coast Panhandle with its pristine beaches, picturesque landscapes of marshes, rivers, sunsets, working waterfronts of oystermen and shrimp boats and charming historic buildings and antebellum Victorian homes. All of this is represented by over 40 select artists working in multiple mediums of oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, sculpture, ceramic, fiber, jewelry (and more), with over 250 works of art. We are considered by many to be the best art gallery in Apalachicola, FL.
On the Waterfront Gallery is home to the private collection of Forgotten Coast en Plein Air, America’s Great Paint-out Master Artists such as Morgan Samuel Price, Donald Demers, Katie Dobson Cundiff, Bill Farnsworth, James Richards, Mary Erickson, Diane Scott and more. Hi-lighted as well are the works of Keith Martin Johns, noted artist of Florida’s coastal landscapes.
The art gallery also represents the Franklin county local Artists of Apalachicola Association (AAA), which supports the local arts community with many events; an annual members show, workshops, and scholarships, among others. On the Waterfront Gallery features not only the art of the “Forgotten Coast”, but also gifts, cards, jewelry, furniture and decorative accessories all related to this beautiful paradise.
