Dark Water: Art Works by Tesa Burch

The Panama City Publishing Co. Museum presents an exhibit of work by a local artist Tesa Burch entitled “Dark Water,” a series of letterpress plates printed at the Panama City Publishing Co. Museum, along with original works. An opening reception for the exhibit is scheduled 4-7 p.m., Sept. 7, at The Panama City Publishing Co. Museum with music provided by Freaky Teeth. The public is welcome.

About the Artist:

Burch was born Oct. 25, 1984 in Panama City, Fla., where she currently resides and works. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the University of West Florida in Pensacola, and her work explores formal abstraction and figure study. She works in a variety of media, including paint and found objects. Some of her most preferred collage media are taxidermy and vintage objects and fabrics. “I like to illustrate southern themes and romance, both their successes and failures,” she said. “My favorite color is shiny.”

Her painting and collage work explores themes of love, misunderstanding and angst. However, sometimes it is just an exploration of different and experimental media. She uses materials varying from the traditional to the rare and odd. Burch is a director at City Arts Cooperative, where her work is on display.

Burch has curated and exhibited in local arts exhibits, including TB/SB Peek Experience, Beach Goth Art Show, Maker’s Marks, I’m Not Going Anywhere, and Kiss Me. All of these shows were hosted in Downtown Panama City and included local artists and musicians. Burch is a 5th generation Bay County, Fla. resident, a First Family of Bay County Pioneer and graduate of the Bay High School.

“Dark Water: Art Works by Tesa Burch” will remain on display throughout September and October at The Panama City Publishing Co. Museum. The museum is open to the public, Tuesdays-Fridays from 1 to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free.

Yard of the Month

As our community recovers from the disastrous effects of Hurricane Michael, The Historic St. Andrews Waterfront Partnership would like to recognize the residents of St. Andrews who’ve worked hard to reclaim their yards from the destruction.

The community is invited to nominate deserving yards for the award by emailing nominees to, by the 15th of each month, when the committee will decide the following month’s recipient of the Yard of the Month Award.

Members of the Yard of the Month committee will select the winner each month, recognizing that some areas will be in the process of rebuilding, and will present each month’s winner with an award on the first Tuesday of each month, which will include a gift donated by Lowe’s Home Improvement and a Yard of the Month sign displayed in their yard for one month, at which time, the sign would be moved to the next month’s award recipient.

To ensure geographic distribution, the committee will choose a yard each month from a different section of St. Andrews. Please see map below.
