PEARLS_Preserving and Embracing Apalachicola’s Rich Legacy of Shotguns


PEARLS* is a month long, city-wide, multi-venue event in April 2017.  It’s mission is to be a catalyst to preserve Apalachicola’s historic housing through the celebration of art and record.

The PEARLS* committee invite you, the artist, to submit for exhibition and sale your works of oil paintings, drawings, pastels, watercolors, acrylic paintings, sculpture of any medium, glass, wood working or photography.  We request a theme that brings an awareness of the shotgun houses and the role they played culturally in the city’s history, particularly as the city of Apalachicola seeks to create affordable housing for all citizens.

Notice to Exhibit – Artists will have all works framed or ready for display by Wednesday, March 08, 2017. Your art must be delivered to The Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art, at 86 Water Street in downtown Apalachicola, Florida on Wednesday, March 29 from 12 noon to 5 PM.  If you need alternative display options or arrangements please notify Paulette Moss at 855-272-5224 or apalachicolaschoolofart@gmail.com. The PEARLS exhibition will celebrate with an opening reception, Saturday, April 01, 2017 and end with a closing reception and auction on Saturday, April 29.

Sales – All art sales proceeds will be held in a not for profit fund, dedicated to securing funds to restore and renovate shotgun houses, until the end of the exhibit.  After the sales reconciliation, The PEARLS committee will pay each artist 50% on any sales of your art work.  The committee will also accept any art work as your tax deductable donation.

Although extreme care will be taken with all works of art, the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art cannot be responsible for work in transient to or from the exhibition. The utmost care will also be taken during the exhibition.  Sending your art work denotes agreement to the terms and conditions as stated in the above information.

Permission to Photograph your art work for publicity purposes shall be understood to be granted.  We request no visitors take photographs of the art on exhibit without permission.
