Visit 30A Artist Andy Saczynski in Grayton Beach

artist Andy Saczynski

South Walton has been recognized as one of the most influential art communities in the southeastern United States since introducing the Artist of the Year program in 2003. In 2013, Grayton Beach artist Andy Saczynski was selected as the eleventh recipient of this prestigious award. Local residents from Pensacola to Apalachicola also voiced their appreciation for Andy by voting him Best Local Artist in EC Magazine‘s Readers Choice Poll in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

Andy Saczynski is a mixed media artist specializing in assemblage art. He’s inspired by Florida’s coastal landscape and wildlife, which are often the themes of his work. His style includes characteristics of cubism, folk art, outsider art, and street art. Given the nature of the materials he uses, each piece is unique, yet recognizable as being his. He’s been a professional artist since 2010, and he opened his studio-gallery in Grayton Beach in 2012. His artwork can be found in homes and businesses throughout the United States and abroad. You may have also seen his artwork on Immaculate Baking products nationwide. He even painted a billboard for the company in 2014.

Andy has lived in Florida since he was a child, calling the Florida panhandle home since 1985. He and his wife have five children and live in Destin. (I sold them the house they are living in now!) I’ve known the Saczynski family since 2008, and recently had an opportunity to chat with Andy.

Wendy: Why did you decide to open your art gallery in Grayton Beach?

Andy: I’ve wanted to have my own gallery on 30A since I was a teenager. I like Grayton Beach because it feels like Old Florida, it’s not too crowded, and it’s centrally located. I also like the feel of Florida beach cottages, so I was excited when a cottage in Shops of Grayton was available.

Andy Saczynski art gallery

Wendy: Have you always been an artist?

Andy: Yes, I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. I never liked taking other classes in school – math, science, etc. I always knew I wanted to be an artist. Sometimes I still can’t believe I’m actually doing this for a living!

Wendy: What materials do you usually work with?

Andy: Primarily wood as opposed to canvas. I either make mixed media pieces using found objects or I use house paint on wood. I’m just as happy building or painting.

Wendy: When you’re not painting, how do you spend your free time?

Andy: I’ve surfed since I was a kid. I’ll surf any wave I can get. So, when the Gulf of Mexico is basically flat, I’ll trade my surfboard for a paddleboard. I also like skateboarding. Oh, and I spend a lot of time with my wife and kids. Most of the people in my family also surf and paddleboard.

Andy Saczynski art gallery Grayton Beach

Wendy: Where can people see your artwork?

Andy: My studio-gallery is open to the public, but they can also look at my web site. My wife, Lori, makes sure it’s always current. They can either check out available work or look through my portfolio for commission ideas.

Wendy: How does it work to get a commission?

Andy: I work with individuals and interior designers so that the client can get a custom piece of art in the exact dimensions and colors they want.

30-A Gulf View lot on half acre

Rosemary Beach Florida Lunch Adventure

Shades Restaurant Rosemary Beach

This was a Rosemary Beach adventure gone partly awry. I decided to have lunch with my friend Rhonda, who is also one of my agents at Rulnick Realty, and take a short drive to Rosemary Beach. It had been awhile, so we thought it would be fun to meander down Scenic Highway 30A. Ooops. We were wrong. For the most part, the drive down 30A was great, checking out all the Coastal Dune Lakes, bike trails and winding roads.  In mid-August, tourist traffic is down, well most of it. That is, of course, until you get to Seaside and Watercolor. Then we were driving behind vacationing cars and tourists crossing the road like ducklings.  Ok, ok, still we were having a good time, catching up and checking out the scenery. The congestion improved right past Seaside and through Alys Beach with its unearthly white houses and stately palms. Until we got to Rosemary Beach. Where should we eat? You could feel the vibe of “people” energy, lots of tourists of all ages,  baby carriages, bike riders, construction and delivery trucks. But we had a problem. Where to park?  Around and around we circled, hoping to eat at one of Rosemary Beach’s restaurants, like Summer Kitchen Restaurant Cafe,  Edward’s Fine Food and WineLa Crema Tapas & Chocolate (really), or Havana Beach Bar & Grill at the Pearl Hotel.  I drove around three times, Rhonda egging me on to park behind someone’s garage. We finally gave up as I started getting dizzy from the pedestrian traffic in all directions and the cars doing aggressive Christmas mall parking maneuvers.  We left.

By this point our stomachs were rumbling, so we went to the next restaurant in sight, Shades Bar and Grill on the corner of 30A and Highway 98 in Inlet Beach.  Cool.  When you walked in there was a neat hostess station with chalk writing screaming “Draught Beer”, “Hot Wings”, “Crab Cakes” and more.  I settled for the Gulf Salad which featured the catch of the day, grouper. You could get it grilled or blackened, and I picked grilled. To be honest, it was a mediocre salad.  The fish was bland, and the spring lettuce was decorated with a few cherry tomatoes and cucumber slices.  Rhonda’s lunch was better. She got the Shrimp and Avocado Salad, loaded with black beans, tomatoes and cheese along with a citrus vinaigrette. She said it was very good. Our waiter was excellent, polite and professional. Maybe next time we would try one of the featured sandwiches, like the Chicken Jalapeno Wrap or Smoked Brisket Reuben, or one of the appetizers like Volcano Shrimp or Cider Glazed Pork Shanks. Today was not that day…. On the way back to Destin, we took Highway 98!
