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!
All That Glitters
A Joyful Enriquez Exhibition
November 1 – 30
Joyful finds inspiration from her love for the ocean, and her art seeks to bring that ocean world to life. All That Glitters, the title of Joyful’s show, comes from a J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings quote, “Not all that glitters is gold,” which speaks to the fact that the most valuable possessions aren’t really possessions at all.
“I played off the imagery of gold by utilizing gold, silver and copper leaf, which are meant to enhance the light effects under water and are more importantly to reflect the preciousness of life under water,” Joyful explained. “Our ocean resources and the abundance of life there are invaluable.”
Art of Imagination
A Diane Russo Exhibition
October 25 – November 23
Diane Russo started painting when her children gave her an easel for her 57th birthday. Though she's only been painting for a few years, she's already created almost 300 paintings. Most of her paintings are created from her imagination, and many of them reference places she's visited with her late father.
Her exhibition will be showing at the Panama City Center for the Arts from October 25–November 23.
An 89th Birthday Exhibition
November 1 – November 30
Longtime community member and artist, Betty Jett, is showing a retrospective of her work in honor of her 89th birthday.
Come see her earliest paintings to her latest, many of which feature familiar scenes from around town.
And don't forget to wish Betty a "Happy Birthday" in her guest book!
We have a lot of exhibits coming up! We hope you come back to see them.
