The annual Art on the Island Gala will be back this fall on Thursday, September 5
from 6pm – 8pm at Windmill Island Gardens! Local artists are invited to create works of art that
capture the beauty of Windmill Island Gardens in categories of Photography, Plein Air, and Best
of the Rest with a suggested theme of ‘In Living Color’ coinciding with our current summer
garden theme. The 2024 Art on the Island is proudly sponsored by Fris Supply Shop.

All submitted artwork are eligible for cash prizes awarded to first and second placing pieces in
each category, as well as a judge’s ‘Best of Show’, and a community vote for ‘People’s Choice’.
Winners will be announced during the Gala event in September where all artwork will be offered
for sale to the public. Some of the pieces that are not purchased during the gala will be left on
display at Windmill Island Gardens to view and purchase until October 1.

Admission to the Gala is free with a variety of appetizers provided by local caterers. A cash bar
will offer beer and wine for purchase. Visitors are invited to enjoy the beautiful scenery during
the event, meet many of the artists, and purchase beautiful artwork to take home.

"Fris is proud to sponsor the Art on the Island Gala,” shares Fris Supply Shop Owner, Andrew
Fris. “We are excited to see the beauty of Windmill Island through the eyes of all the talented
local artists and see their work showcased at the event."
