** EXCITING ADDITIONS THIS YEAR **
Traveling Exhibition: This year, when FWS’ Annual Exhibition closes in Sarasota in October, about 30 entries will continue on to another exhibition across the state in Ocala at the Appleton Museum. Depending on this experience, in future years, we hope to be able to expand the number of our traveling hosts and visit several venues following the close of the initial exhibition.
The traveling exhibition will include 30 pieces from the annual exhibition. Upon acceptance in the annual Exhibition, artists will be asked if they are interested in participating in the traveling exhibition. Should more than 30 artists indicate their interest, our juror will decide which pieces will be included. The exhibition will open on November 23, 2013 and close on January 19, 2014. Stay tuned for information about the opening reception.
