    Donna Burgess has been a part of the Sandestin Wine Festival from the beginning, and her festival event posters have become annual collector's items! Donna will be featured with exclusive art work during both Friday and Saturday Grand Tastings. Donna is a South Walton artist with a fine art gallery in Grand Boulevard.

    2018 is the 32nd year of the Sandestin Wine Festival and I am so excited about the art. It is a departure from anything I have done for this festival. I am receiving many positive comments on my post and from visitors who have seen the original up close in my Gallery at Grand Boulevard.

    Having been the only artist for this festival all these years, it amazes me that I am still able to come up with something new and different.

    At the Festival I will have the original Acrylic on Canvas, ( 40" x 30") along with prints rolled, matted and some already framed. We like to show how one print can be framed for many different decors.
    We will also have prints from the previous years festivals for sale, (although some years are sold out).

    Here's a sneak peek of her creation for this year's festival!

    The Donna Burgess Gallery is located in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin. Side by side with soft ethereal watercolors, you'll find intense acrylics, brightly painted frames, and museum quality fine art. Visit www.artzbydonnaburgess.com for more info.
