Didon Comer opened her one-woman art exhibit at V Seagrove

Published: Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 09:36 AM.

All work hanging at The V Seagrove is new and created for this exhibit. Viewers will find trees, landscapes, and what Comer describes as her "misty people." 

Comer began painting in 1992 when she took her first class. She sold her first painting that year.

Taking up painting was a natural progression for Comer. Her grandfather was an artist and sculptor and once she finally had time to pick up the brushes, the rest seemed to come naturally.

"My grandfather was my best friend and a huge presence in my life," she said.

Comer was born and raised in New Orleans and moved to Atlanta after marrying.

"Our family discovered Seagrove around 1949 and little by little we all came here, raised our kids and grandkids and started buying property. My husband and I moved here as soon as our daughter left for college. I was sick of the city. We've never looked back," she said.

Comer's work will hang at The V Seagrove indefinitely, and her work can be viewed at Coastal Branch Library during the month of March, and is part of the current exhibit at the South Walton campus of Northwest Florida State College.
