Big Changes!

We are moving the 100% Pure Florida Exhibition from September 2018 to February in 2019 and succeeding years. This is to take advantage of increased traffic generated by seasonal tourists and part time residents that will be in Florida in February. Our gallery records show increased sales during this time of the year.

The prospectus is now available here: 2019 100% Pure Florida Prospectus/Entry Form

Be sure to remind all your artist friends to apply! It is a great opportunity for seasoned artists and newcomers to the arts. We have some wonderful prizes and your artwork, if accepted, is on show at one of the most prestigious galleries in Central Florida!
