The Forgotten Coast’s finest Art. Featuring artists of NW Gulf Coast Florida’s Franklin County and the surrounding areas.
On the Waterfront Gallery is located in the Northwest Gulf Coast of Florida in the seaside town of Apalachicola, noted for its fresh oysters. 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.

The 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 25 select artists working in multiple mediums of oil, watercolor, pastel, sculpture, ceramic, fiber, jewelry and more with over 250 works of art on hand ranging from $25 to $2500.
