This event is free and open to the public.

Wakulla’s Working Waterfronts Photo Project:  WCCY and Healing Arts of Wakulla Co. (H.A.W.C.) received a $25,000 grant from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs to engage local photographers in capturing the richness of Wakulla’s fishing heritage; demonstrating the power of the arts to reawaken a community’s self-esteem. Photographers include Mickey Cantner, Katie Deal, Lynda Kinsey, Jo Ann Palmer, Robert Siedler, and Mark Wallheiser. Program developers include Herb Donaldson, Artistic Director of the Palaver Tree Theater Co., and media relations specialist Chuck Robinson, of Brick Launcher LLC. Forty-five (45) photographs were selected from the thousands taken and are now part of a permanent collection. The works were professionally printed and hand-framed by participants from the Commercial Photography Program of Lively.

Juxtaposition and Just Nice:  Lively Technical Center’s Commercial Photography Program’s Spring 2014 exhibit theme is Juxtaposition and Just Nice. Come see the amazing work these students have created using juxtaposition of perspective and subject matter – without Photoshop trickery! These images will have you looking twice (at least)! A handful of Just Nice images are also on display, selected among the student’s favorite compositions taken this semester. The program is directed by longtime local professional and international award winning Photographer Russell Grace, founder of Images of Tallahassee.
