Artist Dorothy Starbuck is now on display at the Heritage Museum of Northwest
Florida. Patrick D. Smith, author of A Land Remembered, has this to say about the
exhibit: "Dorothy Starbuck has captured the very essence of an enchanted land that
has mesmerized people since the days of early Spanish explorers."
On Thursday, June 14, Starbuck will offer a demonstration and informal
discussion at 12:00 p.m. at the museum. This program is open and free to the public;
however you may reserve space by call the Heritage Museum at (850) 678-2615.
Born and raised in Miami, Dorothy developed a love and passion for painting
the natural splendor of our beloved tropical state. Her paintings mirror the beauty,
color and tranquility in the hundreds of tropical landscapes unique to Florida.
Dorothy's paintings have been featured in the Florida State Capital in Tallahassee, at
the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, D.C., in the permanent collection of
the U.S. Air Force, and in various Florida museums. This is the artist's first exhibition
in Okaloosa County.
