Artists of Apalachicola was originally founded in 2007 with artists from the Alice Jean Studio and Lynn Wilson Workshops, to serve as an organization that would sponsor and promote local artists, classes, and scholarships for the Franklin County and surrounding area community. AAA became reactivated in 2014 when it set new goals to expand, to include not only the original visual arts of traditional painting, pastel and watercolor, but also sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fiber arts, as well as performing arts of music, voice, poetry, acting and dance. With the opening of its first members show in May 2014 at the Raney House Museum’s Carriage House, the ‘Artists of Apalachicola’ launched its new expanded presence to also include local artists from other parts of the county and nearby adjoining areas. The mission of AAA is to support our community as a destination for local cultural and artistic excellence for our children, residents, and visitors to be enriched and enlightened, and to strengthen our community’s economy through our events. Artists of Apalachicola is a non-profit organization utilizing donated funds and grants obtained to create and strengthen our activities of enriching our community through the Arts and our Artists.
