Our 13th Annual 100% Pure Florida Juried Exhibition is changing dates! From September to February of 2019.
We have decided to move this exhibition to February to ensure an even larger audience of potential patrons! So… the Thirteenth Annual 100% Pure Florida Juried Exhibition will take place in 2019! The prospectus will be out early summer and we will be publicizing the call for art and the exhibit more extensively than in the past. We are excited to see the positive reactions to these changes. STAY TUNED!
