    Michael McCarty is an Abstract Artist who produces contemporary, modern art (often with a graphic flair). His work is filled with an abundance of color and interwoven with subtle visual suggestions, at times leaving interpretations up to the viewer’s own imagination. McCarty’s background includes designing cover art for bands including Atlanta Rhythm Section, Little Richard, James Brown, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Lynyrd Skynyrd among many others. McCarty was South Walton's Artist of the Year in 2009. Read his fascinating story at the CAA website! Visit:

    His artworks may be viewed in person at The Gallery of MonetMonet on 30A in Grayton Beach.
