Join us at Gadsden Arts to celebrate the 25th “Silver Anniversary” of the Art in Gadsden Exhibition, opening on Friday, October 25th at 6:00 pm.
This year’s exhibit features 108 works of art by 71 artists, in a wide range of mediums including watercolor, oil, and acrylic paintings, drawing with pen and ink, sculptures created from wood, glass and bronze, and photographs and digital illustrations. The juror for the exhibit is Cynthia Hollis, the executive director of 621 Gallery and an art history professor at Florida State University. Award-winning artists selected by Hollis will be recognized at 6:30 pm.
Art in Gadsden, created by Beth Appleton and David Harbaugh, was the foundation for the Gadsden Arts Center. For 25 years the exhibition has brought fine art to Gadsden County, fostered the careers of local artists, and drawn the community together. The Gadsden Arts Center continues this tradition by featuring artists who live within 200 miles of Quincy, Florida or are former Gadsden County residents.
To celebrate this 25th “Silver Anniversary” of the exhibit, the Gadsden Arts Center is offering a commemorative poster and a set of note cards featuring all of the collectible posters since 1889, along with the 25th Art in Gadsden poster showcasing an oil landscape by Jennifer Lowery.
The Gadsden Arts Center is located on Quincy’s historic Courthouse Square at 13 N. Madison St. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am -5pm. Admission is a $1 donation. Tours and information: (850) 875-4866 or www.gadsdenarts.org
