“For The Love of Art,” the largest one-person show to hit the Gulf Coast, will open at the Pensacola Museum of Art, 407 S Jefferson St., at 10 a.m. Aug. 30 with a silent auction that will span three days and culminate Sept. 1 with a reception and live auction beginning at 5 p.m. This is sure to be a “blow it out of the water” sale of Nina Fritz’s artwork. More than 600 pieces, including some never seen before works, are coming out of her private collection and will be available for purchase. Fritz, a well-known artist who resides in Pensacola, has been painting most of her life. She began her art training while living in Japan. She went on to study at University of Minnesota at Duluth, then at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. As she and her career military husband traveled the world, she sought out and studied with the best art teachers in each location. Upon return to Pensacola, she opened two galleries on the Florida Gulf Coast; one in the community of Seaside, the other on Pensacola Beach. Fritz has had numerous exhibitions along the Gulf Coast, including the Pensacola Museum of Art. In 1997, Fritz was commissioned by Paramount Pictures to create paintings for the Jim Carrey movie, “The Truman Show,” which was filmed in part in Seaside. Over

This painting by Nina Fritz was featured in her “Sketches of Spain” exhibit last year at the Pensacola Museum of Art.

the years, hundreds of clients have commissioned her work and she has received countless accolades. Additionally, Fritz conducted workshops for years, expanding from the Southeastern United States and internationally to Venice, Italy. Cards, letters and workshop critiques have offered praise for Fritz’s attention to detail, intensive sketching and painting sessions. There will be a number of ways to purchase Fritz’s work – silent auction, “buy it now” op-

tions and live auctions along with mystery boxes. Watercolors, oils, acrylics, mixed medium drawings and giclees are included in the auction, something for everyone and for every budget. The silent auction will run for three days, followed by a reception and auction hosted by local businessman Collier Merrill Sept. 1 starting at 5 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Pensacola Museum of Art.
