Anyone who has lived in South Georgia, with their eyes open, for even a short amount of time, knows that this is a region populated with talented people. Still, even equipped with that knowledge, the annual Spring Into Art Exhibit never fails to spark awe at just how many talented people live in our area.

The 19th Annual Spring Into Art, on exhibit now through May 25 at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts, demonstrates that Valdosta-Lowndes County and our neighboring cities and counties are populated with numerous people of striking vision, immediate perception, well-honed skills and sheer talent. But to see these many artistic talents, styles, techniques, and ideas all displayed together in the same building is nothing short of amazing.

Yet, Spring Into Art doesn’t just demonstrate the region’s artistic abilities. The show demonstrates the region’s generosity in giving all artists an opportunity to display their works in a professional gallery setting.

Spring Into Art is open to anyone who wishes to register and meet the show’s size criteria. Anyone who registers and meets these criteria gets gallery space in the arts center.

Most shows of this nature are juried exhibits, meaning not all of the submitted pieces or artists get into the exhibit. Spring Into Art is also a juried show, but it is not judged until after everything entered receives gallery space and remains exhibited for the several-weeks run of the show.

The Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts’ staff and board are to be commended for continuing the tradition of this show. It is no easy undertaking to mount such an inclusive exhibit each year, but the arts center does so with panache.

If you haven’t already visited this exhibit, we recommend that you take some time and drop by the arts center in the coming days and weeks. You, too, may be amazed to discover just how talented your neighbors are.
