In the 1960's, the Panama City Artist Association started the Bay Annual juried competition and exhibition, a tradition we are honored to continue. Artists from all fine arts mediums (except photography) are welcome to submit works on any topic. The Bay Annual Exhibition is open to artists of all ages residing in 16 counties in the Panhandle area.
This year’s judge is Tallahassee artist Brinda Pamulapati. She is the artist, owner, and director of the Venvi Art Gallery in Tallahassee, Florida. Brinda has served as a judge for many local arts organizations in the Tallahassee area, including but not limited to: Artist League MOFA 2018, Artopia 2017-2019, 2021, the panel discussion in Gadsden Museum of Art, and the COCA Cultural Grant Program Panel 2019.
59TH BAY ANNUAL FINE ARTS COMPETITION & EXHIBITION
In celebration of Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage month, the Miller gallery will include a variety of Asian art pieces, ranging from textiles and scrolls of art to common household items. Jeannie Millaway, a local writer and engineer, organized this heritage exhibition in collaboration with other families in Panama City, collecting family heirlooms and other staples in Asian art to educate and fascinate visitors.
While preparing for this exhibit, Jeannie stated, “My search began with Asian Immigrants like myself, but I soon discovered that connections to Asian culture are beyond skin colors. Asian art and objects were treasured by military families, through friendships across borders, or sometimes just a simple appreciation of their uniqueness. I was amazed by the enthusiasm of those contributing items for this exhibit, and humbled by their willingness to let me tell their stories.”
ASIAN AND PACIFIC ISLANDER HERITAGE EXHIBIT
CREATIVE WORK IN PROGRESS!
The Higby gallery is currently being rennovated for future projects.
Angel’s passion for art and nature has led him to develop a style that involves various mediums, experimenting with oils, watercolors, charcoal, photography, clay, and acrylic paints.
In this exhibit you can expect to see a photography series that celebrates our incredible biodiversity and the effect of experiences on our perspectives, as an individual and collective consciousness.
