The Alliance June exhibition, All Florida, will exhibit from June 2 until June 30 with an opening reception on June 2 from 5 – 7 p.m. This exhibition features pieces created by artists working in a wide variety of media from all over the state of Florida. The juried entries come together for an exciting exhibition representing today’s Florida artists.
“It’s exciting to host artists from across all the pockets of Florida,” says exhibitions coordinator Krista Johnson. “It truly showcases the breadth and creative talent of Florida’s independent artists.”
