A Little Paint and a Big Party
Art In The Market Artist Charles Dickinson participated in The 2nd Annual Great American Paint Out in Port St. Joe The event was presented by the Gulf Alliance for Local Arts (GALA) and supported by the St. Joe Company. The group of nationally renowned painters set forth creating plein air works throughout Florida's Forgotten Coast.
Most artists agree this outdoor painting is the true test of skill as it requires complete confidence in placement of color and brushwork in a short amount of time. If the sun has set, the painting is done. Charles completed 13 oils and eleven of them were acquired by collectors. Three of Charles works are now in the permanent collection of the Apalachicola Museum of Art which is housed in the Historic Fry Conter House .
