The Ugly Shell explores the beauty of sea life, science, and storytelling through micro-imaging photographs. A Florida native, Michelle Creel Crane, uses her background in microscopy, coastal ecology, as well as experiences of coastal living around the world to share the stories of those ugly shells by revealing the beauty in their imperfections.





Artist: Christina Steffen

Christina Steffen

Originally from St. Louis, Christina Steffen moved here permanently 3 years ago after retiring from teaching high school art for 30 years in several school districts. During that time she earned her doctorate degree and was Director of Academic Services at Central Methodist University. After visiting the area during many spring breaks, she and her husband fell in love with the people and the water, and knew someday they would retire here. Christina loves combing the beaches for shells and driftwood, while her husband scuba dives for "gems" to integrate into her art.






Art Classes for Snowbirds

For all of our visitors from up North for the winter, Artworks is offering art classes Wednesday evenings. Talis Jayme leads these paint and wine classes. Come in out of the cold. The gallery is warm and cozy; and even though we do not have a fireplace, we can paint one; and the wine helps, too!

325 Zero Hunger nonprofit mission is to end childhood hunger in the 32506 and 32507 zip codes of Escambia County.

The remaining 22,000 are left to make other arrangements.”

325ZeroHunger is working with seven (7) elementary and middle schools in our geographic area and will make sure that our food contributions are distributed to those children and families in need in our area. We encourage you to bring several food contributions for this wonderful charity. The following food items would be greatly appreciated by families this organization serves: Pasta, Pasta Sauce (in a can, not glass), Rice, Canned Beans, Canned Chicken, Canned Tuna, Chili, Ravioli, Peanut Butter, Cereal, Oatmeal, Grits.
