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. Read about the unique art gallery and new owners at SoWal.com feature story: http://sowal.com/story/the-legacy-continues-at-elmores-landing

Gallery location: 24728 Hwy. 331 South (just north of South Walton High School). Phone: 850-267-2323. Open 9am til 6pm daily. Follow Elmore's Landing on Facebook for announcements on artists on display and community art classes and events.
