The Fall season begins with Under the Florida Sun: South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual and Media Artists Fellowship Exhibition which opens on Friday, Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m., and will remain on view in the Ritter Art Gallery and the Schmidt Center Gallery through Saturday, Oct. 30. Each year, the South Florida Cultural Consortium awards twelve $15,000 or $7,500 Visual and Media Arts Fellowships. Artists residing in Florida’s five southeastern counties are eligible to compete for this nationally significant individual artist award which means the “Consortium” fellowship is hotly contested each year by the region’s best visual and media artists. The exhibition presents recent work by the 12 artists awarded a 2021 fellowship and marks the seventh time since 2001 that the University Galleries have had the honor of presenting this prestigious annual contemporary art exhibition.
