The Art Galleries

The Mattie Kelly Arts Center Galleries comprise two adjoining galleries which together showcase about six to 12 different international, national and regional exhibitions each year. The Galleries also host gallery talks, workshops, and other related events.

In addition to works from visiting artists, the Galleries host two annual juried exhibitions — the Arnie Hart Juried Student Exhibition, a competition for Northwest Florida State College student artists, as well as the Emerald Coast National Juried Fine Arts Exhibition, which is open to artists from all over the United States.

The NWF State College Permanent Collection is featured in annual winter and summer exhibitions.
