What Makes Artel Gallery So Unique?
A not-for-profit corporation run entirely by volunteers, Artel was founded in 1993 to foster appreciation for art in its purest form without concern for commercial marketability. Its mission is to provide the Northwest Florida region with a continuous forum for quality experimental and contemporary art exhibitions and programs dedicated to the enrichment and education of the community.
Whether by challenging artists to interpret themes or by providing educational programs, Artel seeks to evoke a creative response and inpire artists to create work that is innovative and provocative in technique, media and/ or content. Neither a co-op nor a retail gallery, Artel is an educational institution, the only one of its kind in Northwest Florida.
Exhibitions are presented approximately every five to six weeks, including:
An annual Members’ Show
Exhibitions by invitation
The prestigious Cinco Banderas Competition
Education & Outreach
Website at artelgallery.org
Participation in Gallery Night tours several times a year
Walk through tours of exhibits
Programs for children and the developmentally challenged
Educational lecture series
