COME SEE THE ART!
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!

What Once Was
A Malinda Adams Exhibition
According to Malinda, “This past year, after the Hurricane, I began doing a collection called ‘What Once Was.’ I was saddened that all my favorite stomping grounds weren’t the same, so I began going through old photos to find those places and paint them so that I, and others, could remember them as they once were.”
“Other pieces in this show are just things that I love or was inspired to paint because of how they make me feel and I often have an idea percolating in my brain that just has to escape onto canvas.”
A former Gulf Coast State College student, Caitlin finished her BA in Tallahassee, but came back to Panama City to hone her craft. Though she doesn’t think that she’s developed a notable style yet, it’s pretty easy to pick out a Caitlin Dillon piece in a ceramics show. For Caitlin, ceramics are a happy medium between visuals and concept.
We have a lot of exhibits coming up! We hope you come to see them.
