GULFPORT – It’s been more than 40 years in the making, but a dream is finally coming true for Debbie Wolfe with the opening of a photographic art gallery and portrait studio in Gulfport’s Village Courtyard.
Everyone is welcome to attend the official grand opening and ribbon cutting of the Debbie Wolfe Photo Art Gallery & Portrait Studio from 5:45 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday (Decl; 5) at the gallery, 2914 1/2 Beach Blvd. Street parking is free.
Wolfe’s business is located in the back half of another retail location both of which are located in the southeast corner of the courtyard. To find the gallery, follow Wolfe’s blue signs.
Bring your own scissors to help cut the yellow “Police Line Do Not Cross” tape that was given to Wolfe by her late ste-father, an ex-law enforcement officer. A group photo will commemorate the event.
Stick around after to enjoy the gallery, conversation and food items being generously provided by Pia’s Trattoria of Gulfport and Gulfport Vice Mayor Paul Ray. Bring your own soft drink.
Enjoy the artful techniques of composition, exposure and lighting that are the cornerstones of Wolfe’s photojournalism and documentary techniques.
Signed photo art prints are available from $5 and up in the form of postcards, greeting cards, note cards, refrigerator magnets and wall prints in a variety formats like metal, wood and canvas. There is even a photo art tempered glass cutting board! Wall prints are available unframed or framed.
“Photography has been my passion since I was a kid in the early 60s,” Wolfe said. “It’s what I love to do professionally and personally. It brings me joy and peace. I like sharing my artwork with others.”
