Press Release: Council on Culture and Arts Tallahassee
Celebrate the skill, talent, ingenuity and creativity of some of the most exciting artists in the Big Bend area. In this multi-media show at the City Hall Gallery, the Council on Culture & Arts’ Creative Tallahassee 2013 highlights the work of many well-known Tallahassee artists, as well as emerging artists in this highly-anticipated annual juried exhibition. The exhibition of paintings, drawings, photographs, textiles and sculptures will be on display from March 6th until April 29th.
Competition in 2013 was fierce. More than 175 individual pieces were submitted for consideration. And from those, forty five artists were selected by a special jury to have their work shown in this year’s Creative Tallahassee show.
Meet the artists in the City Hall Art Gallery during a reception and awards ceremony on Friday evening, April 5th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, and enjoy light refreshments. Awards will be presented at 6:30 pm. There is no charge for the reception or the exhibition.
The City Hall Art Gallery is located on the second floor of City Hall at 300 South Adams Street and is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 5:30 pm.
Creative Tallahassee 2013 is one of over a dozen annual exhibitions curated by the Council on Culture & Arts. The exhibit is part of the City of Tallahassee’s Art in Public Places program.
