The Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce (RFCC) recognized Maria Nesbit Gallery & Photography Studio as its June Business of the Month Thursday, June 3.

In June 2018, Maria Nesbit retired from teaching at the Aransas County Independent School District and opened her own art gallery to showcase her artwork and photography studio. Since 2021, Maria has been showing and selling her art in several galleries, and doing event and portrait photography.

Earning many awards, and her art being featured on the front page of the Chamber magazine, Maria’s most enjoyable moments are hanging her wall art for her clients. She loves seeing their reaction, and creating long-term relationships. Maria takes delight in getting to network with local artists and photographers from other areas.

Maria finds that her creativity, authenticity, product size and quality are what set her apart from the others. In the future, she has plans of continuing her education as a photographer and business owner, creating a local camera club, offering photography workshops and create networking opportunities for her clients.
