Press Release - "Historic Views and Holiday Magic"

This Exhibit will be on display November 3, 2017 thru January 20, 2018

The Uptown Gallery at the Brooksville City Hall is open to the public from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Daily, except Holidays.

The Gallery will be holding an opening reception on November 3 from 5:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. to honor the artist's showing their works, complete with the music of Ben Meeks. Refreshments will be served by the Junior League of Brooksville, compliments of CEMEX. Come and CELEBRATE the season with us!

There will be poetry on display by Just Poets. The Nature Coast Art League will be displaying their artwork and the wonderful Photography from the Spring Hill Camera Club. We also have pottery jewelry and woodworking in our two new display cases that were obtained from our grant from The Hernando County Arts Council. We thank them for the opportunity to be able to display more 3-D art.

The World around us is very diverse with many historical areas. Especially Brooksville itself. It is always surprising and interesting to see the new submissions from our local artists.

Please stop by and enjoy the Gallery. The artwork in the gallery is for sale. Perhaps you will find that special piece that you cannot live without.

For more information contact: Judith McIntire 207-809-9066 or 352-540-3810.

The Uptown Art Gallery was established in 1998 through the cooperative efforts of the City of Brooksville and the Hernando County Fine Arts Council.  The Gallery encourages artistic endeavors and provides a prominet location for local and regional artists to display their work. 

The Uptown Art Gallery hosts five exhibits a year. Each exhibit reception is sponsored in part by the Brooksville Junior Service League and Hernando County Fine Arts Council.  Receptions are free and open to the public. 

PERMANENT COLLECTIONS:

The Uptown Art Gallery is the permanent home of the Hernando Heritage Quilt.  The quilt is made up of 22 blocks, with each block portraying a part of the county’s history. 

A catalog of the works by artist Mary A. Coogler (1879-1957) is archived at the Gallery. 

The Uptown Art Gallery also has an extensive private collection of donated works that include the Lewis Watkins’ Historical Prints.
