Mermaid Sighting: Reveal of the Mermaid!

Last Friday was First Friday Art Night here on Tybee, and it was quite a night! The island has been aflutter all week anticipating the big reveal of artist Douglas Jones’ latest piece…The Mermaid!
The Douglas Jones Fish Art Gallery is on HWY 80 as you enter the island!

There was a great crowd in attendance for the unveiling and Ooo’s and Ahh’s abounded amid the applause as the ribbon was cut, the cover fell away, and The Mermaid was released!

She has yet to be named, though, so the gallery is holding a contest to find a name that will be the perfect fit for the fabulous lady. At some point she will welcome visitors to the island, but for now she is welcoming visitors at the gallery with a flirty smile!
