Art In Gadsden

35th Art In Gadsden Juried Exhibition

August 4 – September 16, 2023

The Art in Gadsden Juried Exhibition is an annual tradition that began more than three decades ago to promote the work of our region’s artists, and bring fine art to families in Gadsden County. This year, we are pleased to present 100 works of art by 82 artists. Our special thanks goes to awards juror Katee Tully, an artist and arts professional who was an integral part of the St. Petersburg, FL arts scene, where she helped establish the Chihuly Collection, before returning to Tallahassee.

To celebrate this 35th year of the Art in Gadsden Juried Exhibition, we are pleased to offer special events including the Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony, Artist’s Studio Tours, and a special two-day art sale. Visit our Featured Events page for more information about the above events.

Art in Gadsden will be on view for walk-in visitors Tuesdays – Saturdays 10am – 5pm through September 16 in the Sara May Love, Sarah K. Newberry and Zoe Golloway Galleries. Schedule your own guided group visit at no additional charge by calling 850-627-5023. You can also bring your children or grandchildren to enjoy the ArtZone family studio, a gallery treasure hunt, and the NHBW-Gadsden Reading Corner on any Saturday between 10am and 5pm.

Special thanks to all of our Donors and Art in Gadsden Sponsors who make these programs possible!

Meet the Juror: Katee Tully

Katee Tully altered the arts scene in St Petersburg when she relocated from New York City to the Creative Coast of Florida. She was successful in her role as Executive Director of the Morean Arts Center in St Petersburg and during her tenure, Katee oversaw the construction and programming of the Dale Chihuly Collection. The Collection became a formidable cultural arts destination and economic driver for the region. While trained as a master jeweler and potter, Katee chose to create a studio practice that fostered community engagement through immersive art experiences. Currently, Katee creates personalized art installations for businesses, individuals, and institutions.
