Paper to Gold: A fifty Year Anniversary Exhibition
January-February 2003

Curated by Karen Valdes, Gallery Director at Okalossa-Walton Community College. This exhibition cleverly redefines the "traditional anniversary symbols" that commemorate special occasions - such as paper (year 1); cotton (year 2); silver (year 25) to gold (year 50). Florida artists selected to participate will produce their rendition for each anniversary year in their own contemporary craft medium. This exhibiton is in celebration of Florida Craftsmen's 50 years as a statewide organization.
Opening Reception: January 11, 2003
