2011 Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival

Shrimp Festival Poster This week is the 48th Isle of Eight Flags Annual Shrimp Festival here in Fernandina Beach and the second year in a row that we will not be in our usual Space 212 on Centre Street.

However, if you look behind the Space to the Amelia Island Coffee Shop, William Maurer has some of his art for sale in there. It’s been a busy two years for us since William’s fall, not only becoming newlyweds, but with Kathleen being diagnosed with MS last year.

William will be walking around this year jurying the Art and Crafts show on Saturday morning. You can also see many of his art prints and originals at the Eight Flags Antique Market on Centre Street, Space 35, Open M-S 10-6, and
Sunday 12-5

William was the 2009 Shrimp Festival Poster artist that sold hundreds of posters that year, and some are still available at various locations; Eight Flags Antique Market, Books Plus, Amelia Island Coffee Shop, The Amelia Island Museum of History and all are welcome to visit the artists home gallery by appt. and view many local paintings as well as his paintings from France. Also, look for the remaining copies of his coffee table book Sketches of Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, The Mark of William Maurer, find them at many locations around the island and our website!
