Located just over the Wabasso CR510 bridge, Marsh Island is a gated community situated on a beautiful island preserve. The clubhouse is a turn of the century design with a plantation feel. It has sweeping porches and an open feel. 


From the mainland, go east over the Wabasso Bridge CR510 off of US1 on the north side of Vero Beach. After you pass over the Indian River, you will go down the bridge and you will pass the beach parks on either side. The next body of land is Marsh Island. Marsh Island Drive will be the first street on the left. Continue on and the clubhouse will be on your right.
From Orchid Island, go west over the Wabasso Bridge CR510 off the A1A. As you come down off the first section of bridge, Marsh Island Drive will be on your right.

Although we are providing information cards with the number of the piece in the show, the name of the artist, the title of the piece, the category (and medium if supplied), and the price, such cards do not provide a way for the artists to communicate with the patrons and to tell the story of the piece, if they think it/they would benefit from such explanation. For this reason, we have told several artists that they may provide such a card for display with their piece, provided that the card is neatly and clearly typed on a 3”x 5” unlined note card, and contains 100 words or less. This card is optional, but if supplied, must include both the artist's name and the name of the piece to which it refers.

With regard to volunteers, we have committee chairs for volunteer coordination and advertising, both of whom would be grateful for volunteers to help them. In addition, we are looking for volunteers to help with managing applications and databases, graphics and printing, and VIP reception planning. As we get closer to the show, We then will need help with the actual design, organization and running of the show and the sale of the artwork.
