Celebrate Art With Us! 

On behalf of the Turner Center board and staff, thank you to all who joined us at the New Exhibit Opening Reception on Monday, September 20, featuring Amy Bennion, an assistant professor of Painting & Drawing at the University of North Florida, Jacksonville, FL; Erin Kendrick, an arts educator from Jacksonville, FL; and Valdosta’s very popular and talented Travis D. Simmons. It was inspiring to see so many attend the event!

The next best thing to being here in person is to follow the Turner Center on social media, where the art works are displayed for your viewing enjoyment over the weeks ahead.

Creative places are essential to all communities, and the Turner Center for the Arts always has a myriad of experiences to inspire your creativity! Be inspired by walking through our art galleries, choose among a host of classes and workshops, and attend any number of our events, all in the safety of our beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. Comb this website, which is filled with information about what we have to offer for your next art experience. And, mark your calendars for Music in the Art Park on October 8 with 2River Station and November 12 with Flintock Annie, and our 4th Annual ARToberfest held on Saturday, October 23 from 10-4pm. Come out and discover the many talented local and regional artists, watch artist demos, enjoy the South Georgia Classic Car Club show and much more!

The Turner Center’s permanent European porcelain collection is also on display in the Howard Gallery; and the Gift Shop–which is open any time the galleries are open–has been stocked with new, original works of art made by local and regional artists.

There is literally something for all creative souls here at the Turner Center. I look forward to seeing you soon!
