The “Art of the Oyster” Fundraiser, “Paint Party”, Exhibit and Auction
On Thursday, January 8, 6 PM, please join us for a painting party at the Center for History, Culture and Art, 86 Water Street, Apalachicola, Florida. RSVP.
Calling up to 25 creative painters to participate in a painting party with an oyster theme, to celebrate The Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department Cook-off and Fundraiser. Artists of the Artist of Apalachicola Area (AAA) will be on hand to provide “expert” advice.
16 x 20 Gallery-ready canvases and paints will be supplied along with wine and appetizers. Your completed Oyster Art painting will be on exhibit starting Friday, January 9 and be featured auction items for preview Friday night, January 16 with the auction continuing throughout the day on Saturday.
The Annual Oyster Cook-Off to benefit the Apalachicola to Fire Department is held every year on the Friday and Saturday before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at Riverfront Park. All proceeds go directly towards paying for the brand new fire truck they were able to purchase a few years ago, due to this sole fundraising event. We believe the AAA creations for auction will not only be a wonderful exhibit but will add a new dimension to the fundraising opportunities.
This year’s 5th Annual Oyster Cook-Off will be held January 16th and 17th.
