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.
A special Thank You to these collectors for loaning their objects to help this exhibition be so exciting to share with everyone!
