The 63rd annual Members' Juried Exhibition is an opportunity for artist members, at all levels of expertise, to submit their artwork for display at the Pensacola Museum of Art. This exhibition is anticipated annually and offers a unique glimpse into the talent and creativity of artists within our community and Northwest Florida.
All current Museum members may enter up to three pieces of original artwork for juror consideration - only one work by each artist will have the potential of being selected.
Wondering about your membership status? Contact the Museum at 850.432.6247 or email Suzanne Slabaugh at email@example.com.

Heather has been heavily involved in the local arts community for 10 years, and has been a full time professional artist for 7. Heather’s award-winning work has been featured in galleries and museums across the nation and in several solo exhibitions. Focusing on a symbiotic relationship between humans and nature, Heather’s detailed portraiture mixes with rich and often surreal metaphors.
