The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, in partnership with Artel Gallery, announce the artists selected for the Emerging Artists grant program. Ivo Alcala said his focus is figure drawing and portraits. “I love classical painting, but I am stuck in a world of contemporary art.” Summer Sevi works primarily in oils and charcoal, she creates haunting portraits conveying the struggles that we all share.
