The FIPAP Art Show Est. 1985-1987.

 

 Art has always been part of the Pines community. The beauty of the beach has inspired many. In the 70’s it became a melting pot for the creative as designers, artists, architects, and theater people found their way to the Pines. Among the earliest artists was Ferron Bell. He was among other artists in one of the first independent shows in 1969.

The shows grew throughout the 1970’s with no formal organization behind them. They were community run and had a homespun feel with much homemade art.

As the shows grew the level of sophistication grew too. The show became more formalized and moved to a home called Bayside 6 owned by Gil Johnson and John Robinson.
