LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts

Our mission is to promote and advance education, interest and participation in the contemporary visual arts.

LeMoyne is a center for the visual arts that provides fine art exhibitions, year round art classes, and special art-related cultural events for the citizens of Tallahassee and surrounding area. We hope you will visit soon and we look forward to seeing you.

The LeMoyne exhibition space is located in a National Register property with adjoining facilities housing art classrooms. All facilities are located three blocks from the Capitol in Tallahassee, Florida. As many as three hundred artists per year show their work at LeMoyne, and art education classes for both children and adults are offered year round. Special events include the annual Art & Soul Celebration in September, Holiday Show in December and the annual Chain of Parks Arts Festival in April.

The Helen Lind Sculpture Garden is located to the rear of the LeMoyne gallery, an excellent setting for LeMoyne's permanent sculpture collection. A delight in any season of the year, the gardens provide the perfect place for a relaxing stroll or a bird-watching picnic lunch for downtown workers. The garden is also available for rent to the public.

LeMoyne distinguishes itself in offering the very best of local, regional and national creative arts. An average of 108,000 international and US visitors come to the gallery and surrounding facilities each year.

Juror: Jaune (Quick-to-See) Smith

Born in 1940 on the Flathead Reservation in Montana to Flathead Salish, French-Cree, and Shoshone parents, Quick-to-See Smith became an artist while in her 30s and was earning a living as a painter before she completed her master of fine arts degree at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.  By the mid-1970s, she had founded artists groups, curated exhibitions, and organized grassroots protests to express concern for the land and its Native people.  She has developed a distinctive modernist style over the past 35 years, in a variety of techniques, Quick-to-See Smith has received international critical acclaim through more than 75 solo exhibitions and numerous international shows.



In the early 1980s Quick-to-See Smith began to create paintings that address the complexities of Native American identity, both on the personal level and as a communal experience. Since 1990, many of her works have drawn attention to specific issues affecting this community, including preservation of the environment, racial and gender stereotyping, and problems of alcoholism.

Smith's politically-loaded subject matter ranges from cowboys and Indians to McDonald's and consumerism, reservation life, and war. According to Quick-to-See Smith, "Everything in America is for sale including land, water, air and elections"  That's why she includes money signs in her paintings as did Andy Warhol, but she adds other iconic forms such as ancient petroglyph's in her works to reflect both Western and Native cultures.
