The Art Gallery at the University of West Florida presented “Points of Departure: A Foundations-level Exhibition” from Monday, Jan. 7 - Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019. A closing reception took place on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019. TAG is located in the Center for Fine and Performing Arts, Building 82, on the Pensacola campus.

The objective of “Points of Departure” is to showcase the challenges and successes introductory-level art students encounter in two and three-dimensional design, drawing, ceramics, painting, the digital arts and graphic design. These foundation courses are a crucial component of the program and form the cornerstone to a successful art-making practice. The works created in these classes are presented in a raw, unencumbered, studio-like format to engage students, faculty and the greater Northwest Florida community through a variety of media and expression.

TAG at UWF seeks to challenge, stimulate and engage students and the greater public through direct interaction with works of contemporary art.

TAG is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. All events are free and open to the public. For more information, visit our website, uwf.edu/tag, or contact Nicholas Croghan, Gallery Director, at artgallery@uwf.edu or 850.474.2696.
