The Florida Artist Group (FLAG) was incorporated as a non-profit organization of professional artists in 1949. Made up of artists whose work has attained national or state-wide recognition, the purpose of the group is to stimulate attainment of the highest standards of creative art within the State of Florida.
Since 1949, the Florida Artist Group has held a symposium and a members' exhibition each year in a different Florida city. Education and other cultural aims are advocated at these meetings through lectures, panel discussions, films and demonstrations.
In addition to the Symposium and Exhibition held in the spring, area exhibitions and meetings are sponsored at other times in various places in the state. The nature of these meetings follows the character of the Spring meeting. These meetings also serve to bring the members of the organization closer together.
Members' Annual Exhibition:
The annual exhibition is juried for awards (currently nine) that are presented at the Awards Banquet held as part of the Symposium. FLAG hosts an eminent artist, educator, curator or Museum professional to act as juror and Keynote Speaker at the Symposium.
