Art: The Lightning Round
Entry Opens: December 15, only 20 spots available!
For this exciting Gallery Walk event we invite our MEMBER ARTISTS to submit 15-20 images. After a 1 minute intro, each artist will present his/her images to the public in a timed 1 minute slideshow. Then, there will be 3 minutes of Q &A, and then on to the next artist! This is a perfect way for artists of all media and skill levels to share their unique work, meet other members, and see what else is happening in our Morean community!
2019 Members Show: This Is Me
July 13- September 19, 2019
Entry Form Due WITH Artwork July 2-3, 2019
Morean Members are each invited to submit one piece for this year’s themed Members Show: This is Me.
Never has the saying “Print Isn’t Dead” been more poignant than in the case of a newly minted partnership between the Morean Arts Center and BIG INK. To mark the occasion the Morean Arts Center is hosting a two-day event, Sept 28 & 29, 2019, celebrating works on paper at their gallery located at 719 Central Ave in St. Petersburg. There will be hands-on demonstrations and the opportunity to witness the printing of monumental woodblock prints carved by artists from throughout the region. If you are an artist interested in participating the deadline to apply is July 22, 2019.

Exhibitions at the Morean Arts Center
The Exhibitions department is responsible for the programming of the Morean’s galleries. The Morean’s exhibitions serve as a portal through which members of our community are introduced to contemporary art that is socially and culturally relevant, accessible, dynamic, and educational and at times challenging and provoking.
Our department arranges exhibitions of work in all media by a broad spectrum of artists, including those who are emerging, mid-career, and established, as well as work by children.
We put on over 30 exhibitions each year, with each exhibition running from 4 to 7 weeks.
The Morean Arts Center is not only interested in the meaning of contemporary art, but also in educating our visitors on how art is made. Often our exhibitions will feature process areas where an artist reveals his or her working philosophy, even showing step-by-step progressions of artwork at times.
We seek to connect people with our exhibiting artists so that our community feels an affinity with the artists whose work is on display and a personal connection with the artwork itself.
We also work with the Morean’s education department to offer additional programming that enriches the viewer’s experience with our exhibitions. These may include gallery talks, panel discussions, special tours, master artist workshops, and hands-on activities for children. We welcome artists’ programming ideas, as well.
Most of the works in our exhibitions are for sale, with proceeds going to the exhibiting artists and to the programs at the Morean Arts Center.
