Friday Meanderings

I’ve often commented that Old Homosassa is the perfect setting for little art shops and other fun stores.  We already have several–Watson’s Art Gallery, Riverworks, The Glass Garage, Pepper Creek Pottery, and River Safaris plus Cleo Lydy has the Lydy Art Gallery in her home.  

We have a special opportunity right here in Old Homosassa this weekend.  Gil and Wendy Watson, artists and owners of the Watson Art Gallery are having an exhibition by Keith Johns Martin on Saturday, July 25th, from 10 am to 5 pm.

The featured artist will be showing several large scale original pieces and giclee prints at the gallery as well as painting on site.

I met Keith Johns Martin last month when he was holding an Oil Painting Workshop at the Watson Art Gallery & Studio.  Not only an incredible artist, but also a talented instructor.

After 5 pm they will be having a Cuban/Island style cookout by chef Bert Savell for $10 a plate and live music performed by Cat Valentine.

If you have any questions give Gil and Wendy a call at (352) 503-9709 or email them at

Sounds like fun!

Invitation to Watson’s Art Gallery

According to the Citrus Chronicle, Crystal River is back to planning their river walk that would connect downtown Crystal River on both sides of US 19 to the waterfront on King’s Bay. I’ve been reading about these plans since I’ve moved to Citrus County.  I would love to see this become reality.

That’s it for this week!

Have a great weekend!
