Annual Weddings issue:
Hello 2017, so glad to see you. I hope we will become great friends.
That’s all I have to say about that, and now that the obligatory new year comment is out of the way, let’s talk about this amazing issue of Pensacola Magazine. Every January we like to focus our issue on art and on the people who are doing, making and creating it. Each November we begin to think about and research what is happening in our art community and I am pleasantly surprised when each year brings something both meaningful and new. Our little town continues to grow as an arts town and for that I am extremely thankful.
This year we take a look at a few local designers who are creating high quality pieces in their respective mediums. Ben Bogan and Jeff Bere each create stunning furniture that is both functional and artistic while Richard Humphreys and Caitlyn Cooney put their unique stamps on a variety of screen printing and letterpress techniques. We hope you enjoy getting to know these artists and we hope you seek out their work whenever possible.
In this issue we also profile many upcoming art events like the fun and the quirky Pensacon, the musical majesty of the 30A Songwriters festival, and a moving photography exhibition by Warren Thompson. We also speak with local art consultant Alexis Leader about the value of local art and her new consulting firm, Leader Art Consultants, LLC. In addition, we bring you two unique community art projects that took place in 2016 and discuss the value of public art.
Be sure to check out our stories on Blue Morning Gallery’s 20th anniversary year and how the Pensacola Symphony continues its tradition of giving back and spreading a love for symphonic music via its Beyond the Stage initiative.
I hope you enjoy this issue and I hope you have a very
Happy new year!
