From the Mayors desk
It has been very exciting to be a part of the arts in Wetumpka. The Abandoned Rural America Exhibition presented by a gentleman from Georgia, Peter Muzyka, has been a tremendous success and a huge draw to our community. The Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery has worked extremely hard on this exhibit and it certainly showed with a successful opening night. The performance at the Wetumpka Depot playing to a full house of people dealing with words and music tied to rural America was a pleasure to see.
To listen to the songs performed by David Craig brought back a lot of memories of the Saturday evenings spent listening to the Grand Ole Opry. And the memories of Sunday mornings as our homes were filled with gospel music as we dressed for church and sang the Song of Jubilee. The amazing performance was an excellent representation of gospel music and certainly a crowd pleaser. All in all, the accolades go to the Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery for putting together and presenting this walk down memory lane through the arts. Stay tuned for new shows coming our way and sponsored by the arts.
This is just one of the things that makes Wetumpka better as we continue to move forward, working together.
The Gallery is open • Monday – Friday • 8:00 A.M.-4:30 P.M. at the City Administrative Building (408 S. Main St.)
