Galleries & Exhibitions

November 6–January 16, 2016
La Creatura
Showalter Hughes Community Gallery
Crealdé School of Art presents this dynamic exhibition of sculptural works created by members of the Florida Sculptors Guild. The theme of the show, "La Creatura," challenged the artists to convey their ideas about "creatures," both human and animal − be it figurative, abstract, realistic or surrealistic − using various mediums including clay, terracotta, glass mosaic, metal, wood, found objects and mixed media. 

September 11–January 18, 2016
The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America and
Mid-Florida Quiltmakers: Commemorations and Connections
Alice & William Jenkins Gallery
and Hannibal Square Heritage Center
Crealdé will be one of the first U.S. hosts for this internationally traveled exhibition of quilts, which was originally sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and toured in China before coming to the U.S.

Folklorist Teresa Hollingsworth and curator Katy Malone of South Arts in Atlanta selected artists with diverse backgrounds and paths that led them to quiltmaking, including Native American quilter Bonnie LeBeau from South Dakota; Dottie Moore of North Carolina, a longtime fiber artist who depicts scenes from nature; Erick Wolfmeyer of Iowa, whose quilts are inspired by the Midwest landscape; and Louisiana Bendolph from Alabama, following the tradition of Gee’s Bend quilts.

Hannibal Square Heritage Center also will host this two-venue exhibition, which features Mid-Florida Quiltmakers, curated by folklorist and author Dr. Kristin Congdon. This juried exhibition comprises 15 stunning quilts, variously stitched by quilters who have made Florida their home. These quilters, both traditional and innovative, explore color, composition, and storytelling in ways that will delight and engage diverse audiences.

When visiting our main campus, be sure and take a look through the handmade art and jewelry. All sales support local artists and Crealdé.
