We had another weather-perfect Spring weekend. And we were busy busy busy.
Of course, the highlight of the weekend was the Luminary Art Nights.
And it was even better because our “part-time” neighbors Bill and Ellen (whose family have had a place right around the corner on our canal for over 40 years) surprised us with a text that they were relaxing in Old Homosassa for the weekend and ‘were we going to the Luminary Art Night?’
And you know the answer to that was YES!
Six galleries participated in the Luminary Art Nights this past weekend. I didn’t get to cover some of the galleries in my posts last week so I’m featuring photos from the other three places that I snapped at Saturday night’s festivities.
We started out at Watson’s Art Gallery and Studio and were greeted by Gil and Wendy Watson’s three sons and a roaring bonfire. Wonderful pieces created by local artists were displayed outside and covered all the interior walls plus several tables.
Next up was the Olde Mill House Gallery where Jim “Bo” Anderson, owner, entertained us with witty commentary and printing press demonstrations.
Bo showed Ellen and I how to make thank you cards.
We stopped in at Riverworks to check out Kevin Jenkins’s copper sculptures and driftwood furniture by Mark Arnett.
Next up was River Safaris & Coyote Cafe.
Our last stops were the Glass Garage where Ellen and Bill purchased some beautiful glass jewelry and I met the artists Louise Whitney and Lori Lenoir and then on to The Pepper Creek Pottery. We ended our evening with a delicious dinner at the Seagrass.
The evening was wonderful and the traffic of incoming visitors to the galleries was non-stop. Such a great event. I especially love that all of the owners and artists are locals and have made an investment in our community.
Next up–Shrimpaplooza on Saturday. Parade at 10 am! Be there!
