2016 Featured Artist

Artist Larry RackleyArtist Larry Rackley
Larry Rackley is a big personality with an old soul – meeting him feels a lot like talking to your childhood best friend. Southern through and through, he grew up in Birmingham and spent summers on the Gulf Coast where the scenery and critters there inspired a lifelong love of the sea. A perpetual outdoorsman even as a kid, Larry loves fish, horses and dogs – probably in that order. A crackerjack artist who always has a paintbrush in one hand and a drink in the other, Larry is distinct in his ability to paint his masterpieces live in front of any audience. Larry’s love of the outdoors has led him to contribute to organizations such as The Coastal Conservation Association, Ducks Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Federation and The Billfish Foundation.
