All are invited to join us at the Opening Reception for the 16th Annual New Works Exhibition on Saturday, October 13, from 5 – 7 pm.  28 artists from throughout the region were selected for the New Works exhibition in the Hayloft Gallery by the Floyd Center for the Arts Gallery Committee. This yearly exhibit is a continuing reflection of the artistic growth within our community. All artwork for this show was created within the last year and has not been previously shown at the Center. The public will be invited to vote for their favorite piece and the winner of the $50 “People’s Choice” award will be announced after the end of the exhibit.  Many of the featured artists will be in attendance and available to discuss their work.  Refreshments will be served and a cash bar will also be available.

Opening the same night are exhibitions in the Falcon and Breezeway Galleries.
