The Art in Gadsden exhibition was the foundation for the Gadsden Arts Center. The founders of the Art in Gadsden exhibition, Beth Appleton and David Harbaugh, wanted to bring fine art to Gadsden County, foster the careers of local artists and draw the community together through this special event. Beginning in 1989, Art in Gadsden was displayed in empty downtown storefronts in Quincy, all put together and organized by a dedicated and all volunteer community.
The Gadsden Arts Center’s annual juried signature exhibition of fine art, represents artists living within 200 miles of Quincy, Florida, and includes watercolor, oil, and acrylic paintings, drawings with pen and ink, to sculptures created from wood, glass and bronze, and photographs and digital illustrations.
This is the 28th year of the Gadsden Arts Center’s only annual tradition, and the award winner will be selected by juror, Carrie Ann Baade, artist and FSU Art Professor.
Applications for the 28th Art in Gadsden are being accepted now through August 5, 2016. To be added to the artists’ list, contact Curator Angie Barry at (850) 627-5021.
Gadsden Arts Center is located on 13 N. Madison; Quincy, FL 32351
