LeMoyne Art Foundation

Tallahassee, FL




Friends and Lovers

September 8 - October 13, 2000


This exhibit features eight husband and wife artists. Six of the painters were invited by Gustavo Castillo and Carmen Lagos who had a major exhibit at LeMoyne in 1996. The three couples took note of one another when participating in many of the outdoor festivals included on the Florida and national circuit. A pattern of sharing or winning top awards strengthened their admiration and friendship. They have exchanged their art, taken vacations together and have now agreed to show in their first exhibit together at LeMoyne.

LeMoyne's exhibitions, with the exception of the holiday fund-raiser, are open to the public free of admission charges, and all events are free to children under 12. The gallery, located at 125 North Gadsden Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32301, is named in honor of Jacques LeMoyne, an artist and explorer who came to Florida with the second French expedition in 1564 under Rene de Laudonniere. LeMoyne was assigned to map the sea coast, towns and rivers, and to portray dwellings of natives. (information as of 8/00)
