Locals and visitors gathered on Thursday, July 11th to celebrate the grand opening of the expanded A. Wickey Studio-Gallery in the Village of South Walton in Seacrest Beach. The event included highlights from locally-owned businesses including music from Sinfonia violinist Kate Kelley, food by Raw & Juicy, draught beer from Grayton Beer Company and wine from Krutz Family Cellars (co-owner Bryan Krutz and his family are full time 30A residents).

The new gallery features 2,000 square feet of space where visitors can peruse the diverse work of 10 different artists while also witnessing the creation of original work as the space also serves as Allison Wickey’s artist studio.

In addition to the gallery, the space includes a kiosk in the nearby Peddlers Pavilion featuring small art including jewelry, accessories and clothing. Visit the new A. Wickey Studio Gallery at the Village of South Walton at 10343 East County Highway 30A, Unit #130 in Seacrest Beach. To learn more, call 850-588-2551 or visit www.allisonwickey.com.
