Celebrate St. Augustine Art Exhibit
Opening Sept. 5, 2015, 5-9pm | Exhibit runs thru Sept. 28, 2015 at St. Augustine Art Association
Please Note: This event is from 2015.
The St. Augustine Art Association is proud to present its Celebrate St. Augustine Art Exhibit in order to usher in the association’s 92nd season while celebrating the city’s 450th anniversary. The event will open on the First Friday Art Walk on September 4 and end on Monday, September 28, 2015. The exhibit will focus on St. Augustine’s landscape, people, wildlife, history, culture and more.
The St. Augustine Art Association emerged as part of local art history in 1924 when a young woman editor of The St. Augustine Record gathered dedicated artists and writers together to form a group. Through a small series of bumps and name changes, the club ultimately identified itself as the St. Augustine Art Association. The Art Association is very much a part of St. Augustine’s history and has fostered a growing art community since its beginning.
The entry fee to submit art work is $15. Members of the association may participate in the exhibit and submit up to one piece. Eligible works may include 2D or 3D pieces in any style that reflect St. Augustine’s rich history. A special $450th cash award will be offered to the artist that embodies St. Augustine through their artwork. The Jean Wagner Troemel—named for the famous female artist—award offers $300.
St. Augustine’s artistic community is proud to share its hard work and to reveal a city ripe with culture and character in its new exhibit. Locals and visitors are welcome to stop by and enjoy the free exhibit.
Admission: Free for locals and visitors. Participants please visit here.
