We have three galleries—the Main, the Higby, and the Miller—and each gallery changes out almost every month. That's over 30 exhibitions a year! There's so much art to see, you'll have to visit us often to see it all. 


Luckily, it's always free to visit and we're open late Tuesdays and Thursdays to make it easier for anyone who can't come during the day. Hope to see you soon!


An Exploration of Self

February 1 – 29

The main gallery will feature pieces by local artists exploring the theme of identity. All mediums and subject matter were accepted, resulting in a show with an eclectic mix of portraits, self-portraits, abstract pieces, and other subject matter in a variety of mediums.


My Journey

A Coy Pilson Exhibition

February 1 – 29

In the Miller Gallery, the work of Coy Pilson, the Painting Principal of Rutherford High School, will be displayed. 


His show is called My Journey and features paintings that were inspired by the many sights and relationships that Coy has seen or had over the last four decades.


He hopes that his art brings a little happiness to all who see the show and inspires them. “I believe everyone has a creative side, but most don’t explore it,” he said. “I hope my art inspires others to be creative.”


Who Are You?

An Interactive Exhibition Celebrating Identity

February 1 – 22

An exhibition created by the Center for the Arts staff asks visitors to use velcro, yarn, and other materials to answer thought-provoking questions about how they see themselves and how others see them.




Anastasia Dengerud

February 1 – 29

Anastasia is originally from Panama City, but she’s currently residing in Pensacola while she finishes her degree. Art has always been a part of her life, even as far back as preschool when she would paint to avoid sleeping during naptime.


“My style of art is still evolving,” said Anastasia, “but I’ve come into what it is today through experimentation and finding inspiration in everything around me like music, nature, my relationships, and my mental health.” 



We have a lot of exhibits coming up! We hope you come back to see them.
