100% Pure Florida

13th Annual 100% Pure Florida Juried Exhibition 

We decided to move this exhibition to February to ensure an even larger audience of potential patrons! So… the exhibit will take place in 2019! The prospectus is ready!  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.
