Kelly and Friends

Exhibition Open: August 23, 2022
Exhibition Closed: September 20, 2022

Come join us at The Kelly as we honor our namesake, Wetumpka’s own John Kelly Fitzpatrick, his friends, and fellow artists at the Dixie Art Colony.

The exhibition features works by John Kelly Fitzpatrick, as well as his fellow artists Austin Martin, Warree Carmichael LeBron, Louise Everton, Karl Ferdinand Wolfe, Mildred Nungester Wolfe, Carlos Alpha Moon​, Elizabeth Arnold, and Frank Woodberry Applebee.  As a special treat, we also have newspaper clippings, letters, and photographs on display for a closer look at the life and times of our Wetumpka artistic heritage.
