Donna Burgess Gallery is now open in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin®, located next to Fusion Art Glass Gallery across from The Orvis Company. A gallery owner for more than 25 years, Mrs. Burgess’ artworks include watercolors, acrylics on canvas, mixed mediums, hand-painted frames and tiles. She is known for her striking use of color and her beautiful images of life by the seashore and beach lifestyle. Lovely images of sea life, the beach, shells, Florida cottages, children playing and her pets are recurring themes of her work.

“I’m very happy to open my new gallery in Grand Boulevard. The Town Center has a wonderful vibrancy and I’ve already had a lot of support from other merchants and Sandestin homeowners,” says the local artist, whose bountiful works are collected by art lovers, international companies – even presidents.

Her Grand Boulevard gallery also offers an array of artist services including scanning, wholesale and custom mats, printing, laminating, custom framing and Giclees, a fine art print made from a digital source. Mrs. Burgess also produces graphic design and commercial art for clients and plans to offer art workshops, demonstrations and classes either in her gallery or nearby.

Named Walton County Artist of the Year in 2008, Donna Burgess is an award-winning artist who for years painted the Destin Seafood Rodeo posters and the Autumn Tides posters for Beaches of South Walton Tourist Development Center and Silver Sands Factory Stores. She has created the signature art for the Sandestin Wine festival during the event’s 13-year existence. Her commissioned works adorn the walls of the Hilton Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and Seaside Development Corporation, among others.

Donna Burgess Gallery is open seven days a week, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Sundays. For information, visit www.artzbydonnaburgess.com (http://www.artzbydonnaburgess.com/).
