The Gallery at Rio Carrabelle is thrilled to present an art exhibition featuring the work of talented painter, Cal Allen in the historic art venue, Rio Carrabelle in Carrabelle, Florida. These beautiful works of art are on display now and the exhibition will run through the end of November. 

Cal has expressed his southern heritage through his art for over 60 years. His attention to the details of the coast and his love of nature co-mingle to produce his naturalistic approach. From the lighthouses of North Carolina’s outer banks, the marshes of coastal Georgia, and the mudflats of Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast comes the inspiration for much of Cal’s work.

Cal is proficient in oils and watercolors but prefers working in egg tempera. He processes many pigments from local sources. Although primarily self-taught, Cal has studied the works of the great masters as well as more contemporary artists such as Eakins, Homer and Wyeth. Inspired by these renowned artists, he has created his own methods to share his unique view of the world. Cal has received numerous awards and recognitions, and his works hang in both private and corporate collections throughout this country and England. Cal also enjoys sharing his craft and vision and has taught classes in watercolor, oil, acrylic, and egg tempera in Carrabelle, Florida.

Rio Carrabelle Art Gallery is open Thursdays- Saturdays from 10 am -3 pm at 102 St. James Avenue (US Hwy 98), Carrabelle, Florida.
