Foster Gallery Relocation Celebration Thursday, Aug. 23!

You may have heard by now that we shared some GOOD news and some SAD news about The Foster Gallery.

The sad news is the Gallery will be temporarily closed in its current location. Our last day is this Sunday, August 26. 

The GOOD NEWS is we are hosting a Relocation Celebration TOMORROW night from 5 – 8PM to honor the time we’ve had in our space, the artists who have contributed, and their beautiful, original work that is for sale! Please join us at The Foster Gallery for wine, beer, light bites, and special incentives from the participating artists.

The even BETTER news is that we’re in the process of securing a long-term space and will keep you all updated as we progress. 

 
Many artists are offering up to 20% off their work! So this is a perfect opportunity to finally get that piece you’ve been eyeing or get a head-start on holiday shopping! Please join us and support the CAA and the talented artists of the Foster Gallery.

Underwater Museum of Art is Open

The Underwater Museum of Art is a permanent sculpture park located in the Gulf of Mexico off Grayton Beach State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. It lies approximately 60ft below the surface and 0.7 miles off shore. The Cultural Arts Alliance partnered with the South Walton Artificial Reef Association to create the nation’s first underwater museum. Seven sculptures were chosen after a nationwide call to artists for the first installment of the UMA. The sculptures will attract a variety of marine life, and over time will transform into a living reef. Ever since the deployment on June 25th, 2018, the UMA is officially open to divers and marine life!
