Your Membership Starts our Year on a High Note

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—especially during our 60th anniversary year of serving this community and region. If you are not currently a member of the Turner Center, you can become one by simply clicking here. July is our membership drive month. Whether you are renewing your membership, joining us for the first time, or joining us for the first time in a long time, we hope you will agree that we are better together!

As we celebrate our diamond anniversary throughout 2022, we invite you to cruise with us. Raffle tickets are being sold through September 30 for a 7-day Diamond Princess Cruise. Tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100 for the cruise of a lifetime! You may purchase raffle tickets from any board or staff member.

Together, we have so much to look forward to in 2022-2023, such as the DrawProject auctions to raise scholarship funds for VSU art students, SCORE classical music concerts, Presenter Series Broadway performances, Youth Art Month, the Young Writers League and the Art of Writing Contest, Spring Into Art, American Soundtrack, Music in the Art Park, ARToberfest, free admission into seven art exhibits throughout the year, art and music classes, support for local authors, a variety of youth and adult programming, an exquisite Gift Shop, and our two newest additions to our campus – the Richard Hill Glass Studio that opened January 2021 and the Children’s Imagination Station that opens in fall 2023. And, don’t forget about that Diamond Princess Cruise! Together, we really are better!

Please stop in our galleries to view an exhibit featuring Catherine Hillis, Jason John, the inaugural Art Glass Invitational, and the 14th Annual Valdosta People’s Choice Photo Contest. There’s never a dull moment on the Turner Center Campus!

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