Mattie Kelly Arts Center


8/26/2008 - A new art exhibit will be on display September 7 to October 9 at the Mattie Kelly Fine and Performing Arts Center Galleries in Niceville on the campus of Northwest Florida State College. A preview reception and awards ceremony will be held in the NWF State College Holzhauer and McIlroy Galleries on Friday, September 5 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Both the preview reception and the exhibits are free and open to the public.

This exhibition in both galleries features a fantastic array of more than 75 pastel works by 40 artists from across the United States. The Pastel Society of North Florida has been in existence for twenty years, each year growing in membership, popularity, and prestige.

The 10th Biennial National Exhibition is a juried event, with a "Best of Show" prize of $1,000. Noted Ukraine artist, Anatoly Dverin, will be the judge of this year's competition. Dverin received an MFA from Kharkov Fine Arts Institute and now resides in Massachusetts. Artists' work will be available to the public for purchase.

Gallery hours for the two exhibits are Monday to Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 pm and 90 minutes prior to most performances in the main stage theater of the Mattie Kelly Arts Center. For information, contact the gallery office at (850) 729-6044.
