Inspired by a recent trip to Africa, Wally White brings his experience to us through his oil paintings of the colors, textures, landscape and animals he encountered and were inspired by. Wally decided to make Hawaii home in 1968 after a long art career in New York. Initially he made his living showing and selling his paintings on the Kapiolani Park fence in Hawaii. He later played the part of a police sketch artist on Hawaii Five-0. He became a film set designer and was nominated twice for Emmy awards for the best set design on hit series "Murder She Wrote" and the fourteen hour mini series "War and Remembrance."

Vibrant contemporary portrait work of Stephen Smith in the Miller Gallery
Stephen Bennett Smith has a Fine Arts degree from the University of Florida and has been a graphic designer for over 44 years. "Through being a designer, I realize that sometimes simplicity is the best solution, I’m really trying to communicate visually and verbally by manipulating typography, but relating a message is also very important. With painting it may just be how I feel about the moment or the scene that I’m viewing." Presently he is the Exhibit Designer at the Museum of Florida History in Tallahassee, Florida.
See Through Threads of Time this fall in the Higby Gallery
Art quilts are a trip through space, time, illusion, emotions, texture, and color for Maxine Thomas. The ever practical, quilted place mats, throws, bedcovers, and wall hangings appeal to notion of what is right and useful as an attorney and as an artist's love of freedom and whimsy. With the accuracy of patchwork, the discipline of applique, sewing, and cutting and the creativity of quilting, art quilts nurture my soul. Maxine uses fabrics from around the world to evoke emotion from my life and in the lives of her audience.
MAIN GALLERY EXHIBIT October 27 - November 30, 2018
The unapproachable urban vibe of Christon Dee Anderson is often in place to filter objectionable attitudes and cloak his kinder gentler persona. A black child born in the eighties and raised in Florida’s Northwest Panhandle had certain challenges which he met head on thus providing him with an opportunity for other talents to blossom. From an early age he spent a great deal of time drawing and showed a passionate interest in the arts. After a stint in the military, he returned home with a hunger to find his voice and be heard. With local luminary, Roland Hockett, he studied drawing and was fascinated by the artistic visual possibilities of photography under the tutelage of the late Johnnie Ihlfeld.
