    A unique feature to the Forgotten Coast event is a fully functioning Wetroom which sells paintings as quickly as the artists deliver them to the check in station. The paintings are literally “wet” as they are often completed just hours before arrival. The Wetroom features the work of all 20 invited artists. The paintings change by the hour and often art collectors arrive daily to make their selections from the most recent deliveries. Collectors from across the country watch the online gallery where each painting is photographed and posted immediately to the website. If you cannot attend in person, you may view the paintings online. A painting can be selected and easily processed over the telephone. For the cost of shipping, the painting will be delivered to your door. Simply call 800-378-8419.

    • Center for History, Culture and Art, 86 Water Street, Apalachicola, FL

    Invited artists display their finest studio work inspired by their plein air work from the Forgotten Coast event. This exhibit exemplifies the tradition of artists taking a series of smaller pieces produced out of doors back to their studio, and producing larger, fully developed paintings you will see in the Master's Gallery. All works are available for viewing and purchase.

    Florida’s Finest, Plein Air Ambassadors Exhibits features new works from the 2019 Florida’s Finest Ambassadors as well as works by past Ambassadors. The Unforgettable Forgotten Coast: Plein Air Remembers exhibit, features paintings from past events. The Forgotten Coast is one of the last vestiges of “Old Florida,” but the area is changing quickly. Hurricane Michael changed it radically in one day, especially Mexico Beach to Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas and Eastpoint. Carabelle, St. George Island, and Apalachicola also sustained coastal damage. It is the role of plein air to document and memorialize the Forgotten Coast as it was and save those memories for future generations.
