Locals and visitors discover something new every season at the Margaret Albritton Gallery located on Fishery Road in Placida. Margaret has perfected a process of digital etching that is hers alone, a new medium that few artists have attempted. After 30 years of producing etchings, she decided to pursue an Earth-friendly form by creating prints without using nitric acid, oil base inks or metal plates. Her digital design begins with a simple line drawing, and after thousands of mouse strokes and layers of color applications, a unique pattern emerges.

"All the work from inception to printing and framing is done by me," explains Margaret, "I consider every piece to be an original." Her brilliant, tropical designs are emblazoned on T-shirts, greeting cards, mouse pads, posters and artwork — all on display in the gallery.
