Art Show featuring Billie Gaffrey at Elmore's Landing
All you need is LOVE... and some handmade, unique art from local artist BIllie Gaffrey! Join Elmore's Landing as they host the " All You Need Is Love" Art Show on Saturday, Feb. 17th from 5-8pm. Stroll through several eclectic rooms as you decide which piece, or pieces, of art your special someone cannot live without.
Billie Gaffrey is best know for her fun, folk art style. She has lived in South Walton, Florida for twenty-plus years. Art has been her passion since childhood which she turned into a profession when she opened up her first art gallery, Gaffrey Art, in 1994. Now calling Elemore's Landing her "Art Home", one can stop in to purchase a piece of her one-of-a-kind art to take home daily from 9-6pm.
Elmore's Landing has been a landmark in SoWal for many years. It's hard to miss the giant chainsaw sculptures and colorful folk art as you enter or exit South Walton on Hwy 331 just south of the bay. If you ever had the good fortune of meeting Joe, it's likely you haven't forgotten the big bear of a man with the bear-hug personality. Joe was intense and creative when wielding his chainsaw to cut away at a massive piece of wood. Joe’s passing this past March left a big hole in SoWal’s art culture and it is heartening to know that his gallery will continue.
