gallery shows

The Arts Council of Greater Palatka promotes 8 to 10 gallery shows each year, from a wide variety of artists and media. 

It is our goal to showcase many of our local artisans along with art from outside of Putnam County.  In the past, we have had Florida School of the Arts students, The Palatka Art League show, an all-county open art show for adults, and shows of artists who have had a major impact on the arts in Putnam County such as Grace Urqhart.  Additional shows were Tiffany Sage and her family with several of her family members showing their art at the Larimer Galleries, and the Herschel Stallard and Friends water color show, and Doreen Hardy to name a few.
 
 We had Lee Conlee House gallery show during Victim’s Awareness Month and Bras for a Cause where proceeds went to help Cancer patients. One of our favorites was the WWII show in conjunction with our Veterans Movie Series.  This was in conjunction with the Honor Air program to send Veterans to Washington to see the Veterans Memorial.  

We just had our 15th Annual “All County Student Art Show,” co sponsored by Seminole Electric Cooperative Inc.  Through this partnership, we are able to offer our galleries to all Putnam County students to display their works of art.  We are so proud of the talented young artists that we have in our county.  Last year we had over six hundred pieces of art displayed. Each year, Brenda Atkins and other volunteers from Seminole Electric Cooperative put on an awards breakfast for the young artists with ribbons and awards given out at this breakfast.  It is so rewarding to see these young artists receiving acknowledgement of their work. We thank Seminole Electric Cooperative for partnering with the Arts Council to keep this event happening for the children in our community.

Since the renovations of the upper level of the Larimer arts Center, we have had many wonderful shows.  We would like to thank Donnie Adams for making our new hanging system.

Our current gallery committee, Chair - Evelyn Snyder, Kim Simms, Denise Aiken, Luke Taft, Donnie Adams and Carl Simms are much appreciated for their efforts towards our gallery shows. Plans for upcoming shows include, wood carved fish, photography, All County Student Art Show, Larimer Instructors /student show and more.
