    The Gallery at High Cotton, 230 Water St, Apalachicola, FL, 32320, United States

    Summer is the perfect time to present the cool works created by our good friend and professional Wimberley Texas photographer, Robin Hix. As our next featured artist, Robin’s new mixed media works will be on view and for sale in the Gallery.
    Robin’s signature style combines two loves: black and white photography and painting. She keeps this almost “lost” art alive creating intricate dynamic hand colored originals. Among other works, she will be exhibiting her new vintage bathing series; her landscapes are sure to transport us to her coastal worlds of escape.
    These works will be featured only for a very short time so come toast with us and meet this talented artist during her opening Friday, July 12th, 5:00 – 7:00 pm or visit the gallery during our regular hours, July 12-20 (Wed.-Sat., 10-5). Join us to welcome our most dynamic Texas friend!
