Join Us and Celebrate the Arts

Creative places are essential to all communities. We are so grateful for our members who help us contribute to the sustainability of our local economy, tourism, schools, neighborhoods, and overall community through creativity and innovation. If you are not currently a member of the Turner Center, you can become one by simply clicking here. Whether you are renewing your membership or joining us for the first time, we hope you will agree that we are better together!

During the month of July, we kicked off our 2023-2024 Membership Drive (membership runs July 1 – June 30), and invite anyone who loves the arts and wants to support the Center in helping the arts flourish in Valdosta, Lowndes County, and surrounding regions, to join. Becoming a member directly benefits the arts that enrich our lives, communities, and culture. Through memberships and donations, the Turner Center will continue to serve the community with innovative programs, events, and experiences for people of all ages. Click HERE to view our Membership Levels and join. If you have any questions, please contact Elaina Walker, Events & Member Relations Administrator, at or 229.247.2787.

We also ask you to “Grow With Us” as we enter into our End-Of-Year Giving Campaign! As you consider your end-of-year donations, we invite you to think about what the arts mean to you, your family and our community. Although Giving Tuesday, November 28, kicks off the official campaign, you can give anytime! Furthermore, your thoughtful contributions may qualify for a 100 percent tax deductible gift if made by December 31, 2023.

In addition to all of the amazing events we have at the Center such as free admission into seven art exhibits throughout the year, art and music classes, support for local authors, a variety of youth and adult programming, a renovated Gift Shop, and glass arts classes at the Richard Hill Glass Studio, we broke ground on the Meta Shaw Coleman’s Children’s Imagination Station, which is scheduled to open in 2025. Don’t miss our SCORE concert (December 12 – call 229.247.2787 or click HERE for online tickets) or any of the special Christmas camps and workshops happening in the next several weeks. There’s never a dull moment on the Turner Center Campus!

Thank you for your continued support in and friendship with the Turner Center.
