Come out to the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum for a historic event, the 30th Art in Gadsden Regional Exhibition of Fine Art opening Friday, July 13, 2018 at 6 pm. This year's exhibition celebrates three decades of promoting creative work from our region, presenting 88 pieces of artwork by 67 artists from a total of 237 original submissions. Darlene Crosby, Exhibitions and Public Art Director of the Thomasville Center for the Arts, will serve as awards juror. Highlights from this year's selections include Beth Appleton's watercolor cut paper Purple Rain: Tribute, Eluster Richardson's panoramic painting Carrabelle, and Gigi Gaulin's steel sculpture Emergence. As with every year, one artwork was selected to be used in a commemorative poster that will be available for purchase in the museum shop with the opening of Art in Gadsden. This year's honor goes to Eric Sapronetti and his painting, Train to Blountstown.
