65th ANNUAL FLORIDA ARTISTS GROUP EXHIBITION
March 1 – May 3, 2015 • Changing Exhibition Galleries
For the first time since 2009, the Florida Artists Group (FLAG) will stage its annual exhibition and symposium at LRMA. Approximately 90 artists, representing the 10 areas in the state, will display their work and compete for juried awards in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, mixed media and graphics. Many of FLAG’s members are art educators and several St. Petersburg College faculty members are among its award-winning participants.
The judge for this year’s exhibition is Frank Faulkner, a nationally acclaimed painter, artist and interior designer, who lives in Hudson, New York. As a companion exhibition, LRMA’s Focus Gallery will feature the Faulkner works Palm I, Palm II, and Still Life from May 1-31, 2015.
FLAG is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1949 and represents the oldest professional artists’ group in Florida. FLAG members are selected by a jury, and the organization is comprised of artists whose work has attained national or state-wide recognition.
