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.
