The Florida Maritime Museum (FMM) is partnering with Sarasota Bay Watch to present a new exhibit, “Gulf Coast Heritage: At the Intersection of Art and Local History”. The exhibit features the artworks of three talented artists, Larry Stults, William Hartman, and Wilfrid “Wally” Berg. From net mending and boat building to general stores and main streets, the exhibit conveys many facets of Florida’s rich maritime history.
Florida Maritime Museum Supervisor, Amara Nash, is “excited to have the opportunity to bring this beautiful exhibit to Cortez” and hopes that it will help bring attention to the good work that both Sarasota Bay Watch and FMM are doing to help preserve the culture and environment of Florida’s gulf coast.
An opening reception for this exhibit will be held on Thursday, December 4 from 5:30 -7:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be available. Please RSVP by calling (941) 708-6120 or contacting Halee Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org
An affiliated discussion with Larry Stults (featured artist) and two of his family members, Peter Stults and Debbie Stults Harvey, will take place on Wednesday, January 14th at 3:00. They will recount stories, trials, tribulations, and joys of island life on Florida’s west coast for the time period of 1944 to 1969. Seating is limited so RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED.
