Gallery C (218B Ash Street) will be featuring new paintings by gallery owner Carol Winner during the Second Saturday Art Walk, November 13, from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. These are new works from her on-going series of clouds over Amelia Island. Carol also has new mixed media angels, new jewelry and handbags. The gallery is located across from 29 South at 218B Ash Street.

Eileen’s Art and Antiques (702 Centre Street), Intercoastal Wine Company (10 North 2nd Street), and Hunt’s Art and Artifacts (316C Centre Street) will also be open for your evening meandering.

Indigo Alley (316 Centre Street) Liz Norris grew up far away from the sea but always swore she would one day live on the coast and has now been able to call Amelia Island her home for three years. Her work often involves an exploration of the complex nature of memory and how the process of time affects and changes those moments we most want to preserve.

Her latest photographic work is an examination of memory and how personal events are experienced, perceived and shared via social networking communities. Often today, people share intimate personal details over the web without considering who may be looking. The issue of privacy and the rise of the passive lurker on-line has sparked questions of “how much do I really want to share” and “who is really looking”. This unintentional “impersonalization” of memory can often result in feelings of violation or regret. Liz has tackled these issues with her latest installation “Missing Pieces.” Her art will hang through December.

Island Art Association‘s featured artist is Chuck Posmostko and his work with acrylics.
