The Green Door Story
The Green Door is the creative outlet of Amy Friedman, an Apalachicola resident who hails from Rhode Island. While living in Alpharetta, GA, Amy visited the Forgotten Coast for several years, decorating houses on Indian Pass and other areas, when she and her husband bought a 135-year-old house in Apalachicola and began renovating. During the years of visiting, traveling between the renovation project and Atlanta, she found herself painting scenes and elements from Apalachicola while at home. The marshes particularly spoke to her and her abstract style proved to be the perfect way to capture the changing landscape.
Amy originally opened The Green Door in a small building in the Historic Bowery in Apalachicola, but more spacious quarters were soon needed due to the success of the store and the popularity of Amy’s work. Amy found a space in one of the most beautifully restored commercial buildings in the area, the Historic Orman Building and on May 1, 2009, The Green Door opened at 32 Avenue D. The Gallery now occupies the ground floor of the Orman building, located on the corner of Market Street and Avenue D, right in the middle of downtown Apalachicola.
