Russ Traver: The Story of the Path Through the Garden @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Jun 16 – Aug 28 all-day

Russ Traver’;s vibrant acrylic paintings portray dreamlike landscapes, often featuring quirky and fantastical creatures. This collection is part of Traver’s Garden of the Moon series: images featuring recognizable settings that include surprising characters. Through it, Traver hopes to “take viewers to a wondrous land of pure beauty where there is no beginning or end.” A self-proclaimed surreal-fauvist artist, Russ Traver strives to combine the dream like quality and distorted reality of Surrealism, with positive expression achieved through the strong color of Fauvism. The artist believes, “it is the regression of the mind into the past by which we discover images of the future.”

Tallahassee Farmers Market @ Cornerstone Church Yard
Aug 7 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Tallahassee Farmers Market originally stemmed from the Tallahassee Curb Market on Gaines Street, which was present from the 1930s to the 1950s.  In 1978, the market moved to the pavilion at Market Square, and the Tallahassee Farmers Market was established. In 2019, the Farmers Market moved to a new home at the Cornerstone Presbyterian Church on Kerry Forest Pkwy and Thomasville Rd.  Several vendors you see at the market today have been there since the beginning.
