About the Series
With Gallery, WUFT will strive to promote and reflect the rich arts and cultural resources of our North Florida community.
We'll work to bring creators and audiences together by profiling area artists and alerting the community to arts events. We'll try to enrich the audience's experience of the work by exploring the thoughts and process of the artist. And we'll offer the viewers a chance to sample a broad range of local arts opportunities from which to choose.
Gallery will range from still life to dance and from theater seat to sidewalk booth. The core of the program is the creative people who live and work amongst us. The viewer may see an artist profiled that they pass in the grocery store aisle or the lawyer from their house closing may be heard singing with a community chorus. Our goals will be to help promote a community environment supportive of creative artists and to share their work with the community in such a way as to make living in North Florida even more appreciated.
