Walton County’s new Artist of the Year Andy Saczynski goes from doodles to oodles of acclaim

Published: Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 11:23 AM.

Saczynski's studio gallery opened in April in Grayton Beach in Mystic Porte next to Hurricane Oyster Bar, where he sorts through a collection of items his friends consider to be junk and donate to his creative endeavor.

"Seeing something that's been tossed aside is inspiring to me. I use what someone else might consider trash and turn it into art. A lot of that comes from the way I grew up. We were given a lot of freedom and exposure to unique antiques," he said. "Music is a big inspiration. I take instruments apart and use different pieces. I am learning to play bass guitar and my art progresses along with it."

Saczynski's gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday. For more information call 850-502-0072, email andy@saczynski.com, or visit http://artbyandyski.com online.
