The award-winning works for this year’s Art in Gadsden will be chosen by Katee Tully, a practicing artist and experienced arts professional. She lived in New York City for 12 years and then relocated to St. Petersburg, Florida, where she helped establish the Chihuly Collection. Tully is also a volunteer with FSU Women’s Leadership Institute, Gadsden Arts, and Quincy Main Street.

The Art in Gadsden exhibition has been promoting local artists and bringing fine art to Gadsden County for 35 years. When you visit, be sure to look out for a piece by exhibition founder Beth Appleton that celebrates the 35th year.

Families can also bring their children to the ArtZone every Saturday for exhibition-themed art-making and gallery activities, reading and free books from the Reading Corner sponsored by the National Hook-up of Black Women-Gadsden, and a free Art @ Home Kit, sponsored by TDS Telecom.
