By Staff | Oct 11, 2010

Joelle Dietrick's ink and acrylic on vellum piece, entitled "Thin Cities: Earthquake," will be on display at The Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Edison State College.

The Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Edison State College will host the Florida Individual Artist Fellowship Exhibition, opening on Oct. 22 and continuing through Dec. 4. The exhibit’s opening reception will take place on Friday, Oct. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m.

This exhibition features the artwork of the 25 recipients of the 2008 Individual Artist Fellowship Award in Visual Arts. Each artist included in this exhibition was reviewed by a panel of their peers and selected through a highly competitive process.

Since 1976, the State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs, has funded the Individual Artist Fellowship Program and offered awards to Florida artists in recognition of their work and talent. The $5,000 awards support the artist’s general career achievements over the fellowship period. Awards are given in the disciplines of Visual Arts (both two and three-dimensional), Folk Arts, Media Arts, Dance, Theatre, Music, Interdisciplinary and Literature.

Included in this exhibit are Bob Rauschenberg Gallery friends and previous exhibitors Blane De St. Croix, Lilian Garcia-Roig, Clive King and Mark Messersmith.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The gallery is closed Sundays and holidays.
