About the artists:

 

The Soul Sisters are two best friends… Lisa and Susan. They’ve been friends for more than 30 years, and are truly soul sisters. Susan has a 32-year career in the printing industry, creating her unique art in her leisure time. Lisa spent most of her career in marketing. After moving to Destin in 2006, she began pursuing her lifelong passions of art and photography.

 

Mermaid Lisa – “…and so, she decided to live the life she’d imagined”

 

Lisa Wagner Pozza first visited the Gulf Coast area in 1977. She felt so at home at the beach and knew that one day she would make the beach her home. In 2006, she made the first step of her dream a reality by relocating to Destin. With just the necessities in boxes and a semi-reliable vehicle, she drove across the country and started down the path to creating the life that she had only imagined. Inspired by the soft and cool colors of a sandy beach, seashells, and calm emerald water; her artwork is coastal inspired acrylic, painted on a variety of surfaces, canvas, plywood, reclaimed wood, silver trays.

 

Mermaid Susan – “…I think I love the rain, because I’m a mermaid who lives too far from the ocean”

Susan Garr’s a landlocked mermaid with dreams of living by the sea. She has lived in southern Indiana all of her life. She often visit the beaches of Destin and

South Walton, and has done so for years. She hopes to make this beach her home someday. Inspired by everything mermaid; the bold and bright colors of beach umbrellas on a sunny day, blue

skies, and the wild waves; her artwork is reverse window painting, and features many mermaids (my spirit animal), along with other whimsical stylized designs, and customized family tree art.

 

“We are excited to bring our work to Kahncepts Gallery Night on June 29th, and hope to see you there!”

 

“Destin has been my home for over 30 years. I’ve been involved in the arts for many years and love that I am now in a position that I can give back to the community that has been so good to me. That’s why I sponsor local artists and artisans. Kahncepts by Katie Kahn is a collaborative effort. I am fortunate to have a fantastic team of carpenters, welders, painters, and other artists who are patient with me, listen to my ideas and help me turn my visions into something tangible. I learn something from every artist that walks in my door. The creative energy and ideas they bring are contagious. I hope you’ll come catch the creative bug, too. Join me in celebrating some of the most talented artists along the Emerald Coast.

Katie Kahn

Need an even better reason to come? For the remainder of the summer, a percentage of Gallery Night proceeds will be donated to a local charity of the artists’ choice. It’s just another way Kahn’s Furniture is giving back to the community!”
