About The Art Gallery at UWF
The Art Gallery (TAG) at the University of West Florida seeks to challenge, stimulate, and engage students and the greater public through direct interaction with works of contemporary art. TAG's series of revolving exhibitions highlight both student work as well as innovative regional, national, and international artists. These exhibitions seek to promote contemporary critical thinking and cultural inspiration for the benefit of UWF students and the greater Gulf Coast community.
Every year, TAG features several solo and group exhibitions including the annual TAGGED Student Art and Design Competition, a biennial Art Faculty Exhibition, and several graduating BFA Thesis Exhibitions. The Gallery functions as a not-for-profit pedagogical space with a main focus of creating a forum for community dialog centered around experimental and inventive artworks.
TAG is ideally located across from Main Stage Theatre and Music Hall in the Center of Fine and Performing Arts. Its high ceilings and 1,600 square feet offer a creative setting for artists to display work. The Gallery accepts proposals from emerging and established contemporary artists year around.

The Art Gallery (TAG) at the University of West Florida presents “Points of Departure: Foundations Exhibition”. This exhibition displays the excellence achieved in the foundation courses in the Department of Art & Design at UWF. In contrast to TAG's
annual, juried student competition "TAGGED," this is an open-call exhibition curated by the foundation-level art instructors.
The objective of "Points of Departure" is to showcase the challenges and successes introductory-level art students encounter in drawing, ceramics, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, digital arts, and graphic design. These foundation courses are a crucial component of the program and form the cornerstone of a successful art-making practice. The works created in these classes are presented in a raw, unencumbered, studio-like format to engage students, faculty and the greater Northwest Florida community through a variety of media and expression.
The exhibition will run from January 10th through January 28th in TAG located on UWF Pensacola Campus in The Center for Fine and Performing Arts, Building 82. TAG is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All events are free and open to the
public. For more information, contact Cat Gambel, Gallery Director, TAG UWF at email@example.com.
