32nd Art in Gadsden: Regional Exhibition of Fine Art
July 31 – September 5, 2020
This annual tradition of Gadsden Arts showcases recent art created by area artists that is juried from hundreds of submissions. Ninety-two works by sixty-nine artists living and working within 200 miles of Quincy were selected to be a part of the show. Exhibited works span the mediums of watercolor, embroidery, acrylic, oil, photography, clay, encaustic, wood, metal, glass, and serigraph. The juror for the 32nd Art in Gadsden is Katie Deits, Executive Director of Florida CraftArt, a statewide organization is St. Petersburg that supports Florida's artists and craftspeople. Deits will select the award winners, which will be announced live on Facebook Thursday July 30th at 6pm.
32 years ago, the founders of the Art in Gadsden exhibition, Beth Appleton and David Harbaugh, sought to bring fine art to Gadsden County, foster the careers of local artists, and draw the community together. From 1989 to 2004, Art in Gadsden was displayed in empty downtown storefronts in Quincy, organized and installed by an all-volunteer team. Today, this exhibition draws visitors and patrons from across the region. Art in Gadsden is an exciting opportunity for emerging to established artists to share their work, and for Gadsden Arts to celebrate creative production from across the Big Bend Region of Florida.
This exhibition will be open to the public for viewing by reservation starting Friday, July 31, and available online through a full-length exhibition video and additional live and recorded online programming during the run of show, available by visiting www.gadsdenarts.org.
