In Panama City Center for the Arts' lower gallery, the Miller Gallery, Pen, Paint, POP!: Local Comics and Cartoon Exhibit, will feature drawings and paintings by local artists.

All three new exhibitions at the Center for the Arts will open on June 8, with an opening reception on Friday, June 7, at 6pm. At the reception, visitors will get a sneak peak at the new exhibitions, meet local artists featured in the local cartoonist and comics show, and snack on light refreshments.

At 7pm that night, the Center for the Arts will also have a screening of the documentary Stripped in their main gallery. Stripped brings together the world’s best cartoonists to talk about the art form they love, and what is happening to it as newspapers die. The documentary explores comic strips in depth, why they’re so loved, and how the artists are navigating this dicey period between print and pixels.

The two lower gallery exhibitions, Laughing Redheadand Pen, Paint, POP!: Local Comics and Cartoon Exhibit will close on July 5th, while the main gallery exhibition, The Art of Florida Cartoonists, will remain open until July 20.

More about Teresa Roberts Logan

A Silver-Reuben-nominated cartoonist, Teresa has been doodling designs, and writing and drawing comics since she was a kid in Memphis, and did her first “Snobby Models” comic book (basically a bunch of models with their noses in the air, wearing funky paisley clothes.) In her early 20s, she landed in stand-up comedy from her job as a Hallmark artist/writer (she was dared by the Shoebox staff to do an open mic night), and has appeared on HBO, A&E, The Comedy Channel, and lists the finest clubs in the US on her resumé, from Zanies Chicago to Comedy Works Denver to Catch A Rising Star Vegas, and Gotham Comedy Club NYC.  She has worked with Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Carey, and Paula Poundstone, among others.

Taking the funny from page to stage and back again, her comics have been featured in The Center for Cartoon Studies’ nationally distributed “Cartoon Crier,” and her comics “Purty Funny” and “Noodlehead” chosen to be in Dirty Diamonds All-Girl Comics Anthologies most recent iterations. She also loves painting on big canvases, and her work is in collections worldwide, including the extensive art collections of Kyoko Ono Cox and Whoopi Goldberg.

Andrews McMeel Publishing (Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side) is her publisher, and she is on her third book with them, a coloring book full of Mandalas, following her first hit coloring book, “Posh Coloring Book: Paisleys for Fun & Relaxation,” and her book of cartoons, “The Older I Get, The Less I Care.”

She is a regular exhibitor at festivals and comiccons including:  New York ComicCon, CreativeCon, AwesomeCon, TCAF, DINK, and SPX, where she sells her comics to pay for art supplies. Every two years, she takes a group of ne’er-do-wells onto the high seas, and conducts art journaling workshops, in between touring Mayan temples. She art directed a zombie movie in college, and loves zombies to this day.

She particularly loves travel, writing, drawing, being a mom, and wine, but not necessarily in that order.

Get ready for a fun-filled summer of cartoons and comics at the Panama City Center for the Arts!

The main gallery will feature The Art of Florida Cartoonists, which showcases a wide variety of visual treasures created by cartoonists, illustrators, and storyboard artists who have lived or worked in the Sunshine State. Artwork for the main gallery exhibit was selected from the National Cartoonist Society–Florida Chapter’s permanent collection which includes twenty-eight works by thirteen prominent artists like 2013 Inkpot Award recipient, Jose Delbo, and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, Mike Peters.

The closing of the main gallery exhibition will be marked with a family day, Heroes and Sidekicks, a Creative Con event, on July 20. Families are encouraged to dress up like superheroes—specifically heroes and their sidekicks. The Center for the Arts will have caricature artists and a portrait photographer, so families can bring home art that memorializes their day. Animated cartoons will be playing in the main gallery, and there will be stations where children and adults alike can create their own comic strips, or flip books.

Writer's Gallery: Comedy Edition

PASSWORD FOR JUNE:
“I don’t care what is written about me as long as it isn’t true.” Which early 20th century journalist, critic, poet, and satirist said this?

Come to the Center for the Arts for the relaunch of Bay County’s favorite open-mic night for writers—the “Writer’s Gallery”—on the 4th Thursday of every month, from 7pm-9pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.

June’s Writer’s Gallery will be transformed into a night of comedy writing to match our June exhibitions featuring comics and cartoons. Read your funny poetry, short stories, and book excerpts to entertain the audience.

Our “Writer’s Gallery” has a speakeasy theme, so doll up in your glad rags and pop on over to our juice joint to have a swell time with the gang! (Feel free to wear whatever you want, but if you want to dress in a Prohibition era outfit, you get a gold star!)

Attendees should come to the original entrance of the Center for the Arts—the blue door on E 4th St—prepared with this month’s password (follow our Facebook Page for each month’s hint). Everyone with the password gets in for free. Otherwise, you have to pay $5 at the door.

For those patrons who have a hard time navigating stairs, the handicap accessible entrance will also be open, as well as the elevator.

Wine will be on sale, but there will also be water or coffee for the teetotalers in the audience.

It will be a perfect night for kicking back, getting inspired, and having fun listening to the works of some of the creative people in our community.

We suggest the audience be 18+ years in age, but if you’d like to bring your child, we do caution that it is an open mic night, and while we have restrictions against hate speech and overly explicit language, we cannot control what it read, so a parental advisory is in place.

HOW TO SIGN UP AS A SPEAKER
Writers, poets, and spoken word artists are all welcome to sign up for an 8-minute open mic slot on the day of the event by calling in (850-640-3670), emailing (info@pccenterforthearts.com), or coming in-person to the Center for the Arts.

Our motto is “Write Hard. Speak Easy.” So don’t sweat it! Do your hard work when you’re writing and take it easy in front of the mic. It’s not meant to be scary. It’s supposed to be fun!

HISTORY ON THE “WRITER’S GALLERY”
The Writer’s Gallery was started by Lee Baker, of Northstar Church, as a poetry night at Rocky Shore Coffee Co. in 2010, but when Nick Mays began volunteering for the church, Lee asked Nick to take it over. It was renamed the Writer’s Gallery and became the longest-running, consecutive open mic night for writers in Bay County. In the almost three years that the Writer’s Gallery ran, it moved around, first to the Purple Grape and then to Amavida, but when Nick moved to Pensacola, the project lost its leader, and eventually stopped running.

Local publishing group, The Syndicate, has been talking about relaunching the Writer’s Gallery for a while now, so when the Center for the Arts was planning to expand its programming, it seemed like the perfect fit. Once Nick gave his blessing, we were excited to bring the open-mic night back! Hopefully you all are, too!

Backstage Pass is coming back on April 26, for a five concert series!

We don’t have a stage, but we do have a great parking lot at the Center for the Arts, so this year, we’re going to rename our series Backstage Pass @ The Music Lot.

We’ll have everyone’s favorite things about the event—drinking, tables, live music, and fun!

The concerts will begin at 6:30pm, and the Center for the Arts parking lot will open at 5:30pm.

This year’s line-up is:
April 26 – Andrew Tinch Jazz Group
May 17 – Jeff Carter Group
May 31 – The Jam Kings
June 14 – Anthony Peebles
June 28 – Bonita Underground

Tickets are $5. Tables are available for purchase at $50. Find more information on the Panama City Center for the Arts website at www.pccenterforthearts.com/backstage-pass.

Rain decisions will be made by 4:30 PM on the day of the concert and reschedule dates will be determined and announced should they be necessary.

The concerts are made possible by the following organizations: Innovations Federal Credit Union, Hancock-Whitney Bank, Island Junkies, Southern Supply and Downtown Dance.

More about Bonita Underground
The members of Bonita Underground call their music “eclectic acoustic,” as they sing a mix of originals and covers that border on the obscure. Members include Don Brown on cello and guitar, Bob Colenda on guitar, Larry Hayes on upright bass, Curt McCarthy on guitar, and Sandy Pursifull on ukulele and banjo.

More about Backstage Pass
Backstage Pass grew out of the Concerts in the Park series begun in 1986, by Florida First Federal and late community leader, Roger Schadd. From 1986 to 2008, free outdoor concerts were held every summer featuring local bands. In order to keep the series going during the recession, Backstage Pass began welcoming guests through the Backstage Door of the Marina Civic Center in 2009, and the first band was “On Call”, led by the late Hulon Crayton. Tickets were $5 (and they still are) and the community embraced it from the first downbeat. We are so grateful to continue this wonderful tradition.

Tackle difficult exposures and those photos you just can’t get quite right. We will learn how to use channels, layer masks, blend modes, selective sharpening, selections by color or object, and eliminate color cast along with some tomfoolery with each of the above. In class you will work along with the instructor, and then practice on your own images.

You will want to have a working knowledge of Photoshop basics and be familiar with the layout and menu bars. It is best to work with RAW files. (You may use JPEG files, but your results may differ from those working in RAW.)

In Panama City Center for the Arts' lower gallery, the Miller Gallery, Pen, Paint, POP!: Local Comics and Cartoon Exhibit, will feature drawings and paintings by local artists.

All three new exhibitions at the Center for the Arts will open on June 8, with an opening reception on Friday, June 7, at 6pm. At the reception, visitors will get a sneak peak at the new exhibitions, meet local artists featured in the local cartoonist and comics show, and snack on light refreshments.

At 7pm that night, the Center for the Arts will also have a screening of the documentary Stripped in their main gallery. Stripped brings together the world’s best cartoonists to talk about the art form they love, and what is happening to it as newspapers die. The documentary explores comic strips in depth, why they’re so loved, and how the artists are navigating this dicey period between print and pixels.

The two lower gallery exhibitions, Laughing Redheadand Pen, Paint, POP!: Local Comics and Cartoon Exhibit will close on July 5th, while the main gallery exhibition, The Art of Florida Cartoonists, will remain open until July 20.

More about Teresa Roberts Logan

A Silver-Reuben-nominated cartoonist, Teresa has been doodling designs, and writing and drawing comics since she was a kid in Memphis, and did her first “Snobby Models” comic book (basically a bunch of models with their noses in the air, wearing funky paisley clothes.) In her early 20s, she landed in stand-up comedy from her job as a Hallmark artist/writer (she was dared by the Shoebox staff to do an open mic night), and has appeared on HBO, A&E, The Comedy Channel, and lists the finest clubs in the US on her resumé, from Zanies Chicago to Comedy Works Denver to Catch A Rising Star Vegas, and Gotham Comedy Club NYC.  She has worked with Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Carey, and Paula Poundstone, among others.

Taking the funny from page to stage and back again, her comics have been featured in The Center for Cartoon Studies’ nationally distributed “Cartoon Crier,” and her comics “Purty Funny” and “Noodlehead” chosen to be in Dirty Diamonds All-Girl Comics Anthologies most recent iterations. She also loves painting on big canvases, and her work is in collections worldwide, including the extensive art collections of Kyoko Ono Cox and Whoopi Goldberg.

Andrews McMeel Publishing (Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side) is her publisher, and she is on her third book with them, a coloring book full of Mandalas, following her first hit coloring book, “Posh Coloring Book: Paisleys for Fun & Relaxation,” and her book of cartoons, “The Older I Get, The Less I Care.”

She is a regular exhibitor at festivals and comiccons including:  New York ComicCon, CreativeCon, AwesomeCon, TCAF, DINK, and SPX, where she sells her comics to pay for art supplies. Every two years, she takes a group of ne’er-do-wells onto the high seas, and conducts art journaling workshops, in between touring Mayan temples. She art directed a zombie movie in college, and loves zombies to this day.

She particularly loves travel, writing, drawing, being a mom, and wine, but not necessarily in that order.

Get ready for a fun-filled summer of cartoons and comics at the Panama City Center for the Arts!

The main gallery will feature The Art of Florida Cartoonists, which showcases a wide variety of visual treasures created by cartoonists, illustrators, and storyboard artists who have lived or worked in the Sunshine State. Artwork for the main gallery exhibit was selected from the National Cartoonist Society–Florida Chapter’s permanent collection which includes twenty-eight works by thirteen prominent artists like 2013 Inkpot Award recipient, Jose Delbo, and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, Mike Peters.

The closing of the main gallery exhibition will be marked with a family day, Heroes and Sidekicks, a Creative Con event, on July 20. Families are encouraged to dress up like superheroes—specifically heroes and their sidekicks. The Center for the Arts will have caricature artists and a portrait photographer, so families can bring home art that memorializes their day. Animated cartoons will be playing in the main gallery, and there will be stations where children and adults alike can create their own comic strips, or flip books.

Writer's Gallery: Comedy Edition

PASSWORD FOR JUNE:
“I don’t care what is written about me as long as it isn’t true.” Which early 20th century journalist, critic, poet, and satirist said this?

Come to the Center for the Arts for the relaunch of Bay County’s favorite open-mic night for writers—the “Writer’s Gallery”—on the 4th Thursday of every month, from 7pm-9pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.

June’s Writer’s Gallery will be transformed into a night of comedy writing to match our June exhibitions featuring comics and cartoons. Read your funny poetry, short stories, and book excerpts to entertain the audience.

Our “Writer’s Gallery” has a speakeasy theme, so doll up in your glad rags and pop on over to our juice joint to have a swell time with the gang! (Feel free to wear whatever you want, but if you want to dress in a Prohibition era outfit, you get a gold star!)

Attendees should come to the original entrance of the Center for the Arts—the blue door on E 4th St—prepared with this month’s password (follow our Facebook Page for each month’s hint). Everyone with the password gets in for free. Otherwise, you have to pay $5 at the door.

For those patrons who have a hard time navigating stairs, the handicap accessible entrance will also be open, as well as the elevator.

Wine will be on sale, but there will also be water or coffee for the teetotalers in the audience.

It will be a perfect night for kicking back, getting inspired, and having fun listening to the works of some of the creative people in our community.

We suggest the audience be 18+ years in age, but if you’d like to bring your child, we do caution that it is an open mic night, and while we have restrictions against hate speech and overly explicit language, we cannot control what it read, so a parental advisory is in place.

HOW TO SIGN UP AS A SPEAKER
Writers, poets, and spoken word artists are all welcome to sign up for an 8-minute open mic slot on the day of the event by calling in (850-640-3670), emailing (info@pccenterforthearts.com), or coming in-person to the Center for the Arts.

Our motto is “Write Hard. Speak Easy.” So don’t sweat it! Do your hard work when you’re writing and take it easy in front of the mic. It’s not meant to be scary. It’s supposed to be fun!

HISTORY ON THE “WRITER’S GALLERY”
The Writer’s Gallery was started by Lee Baker, of Northstar Church, as a poetry night at Rocky Shore Coffee Co. in 2010, but when Nick Mays began volunteering for the church, Lee asked Nick to take it over. It was renamed the Writer’s Gallery and became the longest-running, consecutive open mic night for writers in Bay County. In the almost three years that the Writer’s Gallery ran, it moved around, first to the Purple Grape and then to Amavida, but when Nick moved to Pensacola, the project lost its leader, and eventually stopped running.

Local publishing group, The Syndicate, has been talking about relaunching the Writer’s Gallery for a while now, so when the Center for the Arts was planning to expand its programming, it seemed like the perfect fit. Once Nick gave his blessing, we were excited to bring the open-mic night back! Hopefully you all are, too!

Backstage Pass is coming back on April 26, for a five concert series!

We don’t have a stage, but we do have a great parking lot at the Center for the Arts, so this year, we’re going to rename our series Backstage Pass @ The Music Lot.

We’ll have everyone’s favorite things about the event—drinking, tables, live music, and fun!

The concerts will begin at 6:30pm, and the Center for the Arts parking lot will open at 5:30pm.

This year’s line-up is:
April 26 – Andrew Tinch Jazz Group
May 17 – Jeff Carter Group
May 31 – The Jam Kings
June 14 – Anthony Peebles
June 28 – Bonita Underground

Tickets are $5. Tables are available for purchase at $50. Find more information on the Panama City Center for the Arts website at www.pccenterforthearts.com/backstage-pass.

Rain decisions will be made by 4:30 PM on the day of the concert and reschedule dates will be determined and announced should they be necessary.

The concerts are made possible by the following organizations: Innovations Federal Credit Union, Hancock-Whitney Bank, Island Junkies, Southern Supply and Downtown Dance.

More about Bonita Underground
The members of Bonita Underground call their music “eclectic acoustic,” as they sing a mix of originals and covers that border on the obscure. Members include Don Brown on cello and guitar, Bob Colenda on guitar, Larry Hayes on upright bass, Curt McCarthy on guitar, and Sandy Pursifull on ukulele and banjo.

More about Backstage Pass
Backstage Pass grew out of the Concerts in the Park series begun in 1986, by Florida First Federal and late community leader, Roger Schadd. From 1986 to 2008, free outdoor concerts were held every summer featuring local bands. In order to keep the series going during the recession, Backstage Pass began welcoming guests through the Backstage Door of the Marina Civic Center in 2009, and the first band was “On Call”, led by the late Hulon Crayton. Tickets were $5 (and they still are) and the community embraced it from the first downbeat. We are so grateful to continue this wonderful tradition.

Tackle difficult exposures and those photos you just can’t get quite right. We will learn how to use channels, layer masks, blend modes, selective sharpening, selections by color or object, and eliminate color cast along with some tomfoolery with each of the above. In class you will work along with the instructor, and then practice on your own images.

You will want to have a working knowledge of Photoshop basics and be familiar with the layout and menu bars. It is best to work with RAW files. (You may use JPEG files, but your results may differ from those working in RAW.)

Requirements for class: A laptop with at least Photoshop 7 or later version.
