After Hurricane Michael, artist Paula Rotschafer, spent hours in front of her easel pouring her heart out into watercolor landscapes showing the devastation of Hurricane Michael. The resulting artwork will be showing at the Panama City Center for the Arts from September 27–October 19.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST

Processing her feelings through art has been a coping mechanism for all of Paula’s life. Born in the Nebraska panhandle, Paula grew up in extremely rural ranching communities for all her life, but she had strong role models and mentors to inspire her.

Her paternal grandmother was a dedicated oil painter, and her maternal grandmother was an accomplished painter who was a founding member of a small art gallery. Her father minored in art, and her mother was a grade school teacher, so she received a lot of encouragement and guidance as she honed her creative side.

Paula and her husband were relocated to Travis Air Force base in California after the storm, so much to her disappointment, she won’t be here in person to talk to people and hear stories from survivors. Instead, the Center for the Arts will have a guest book in the gallery where visitors can leave Paula a message.

“I was an awkward, eccentric, imaginative child who didn’t excel in sports, so art was always just my ‘thing,” she said. One of her aunts’ gave Paula a sketchbook and few lessons on perspective and proportion, and she’s been drawing ever since.

“As a child, I frequently made silly drawings and cartoons that made people laugh, and I absolutely adored being able to create something that could have any sort of emotional impact on another person.”

She majored in Professional Art at Doane College and later received a Masters’ in Art History in Lincoln Nebraska. Now, as a military spouse, she is grateful to have her creative skills to fall back on as it is often hard to secure steady, full-time work.

The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College presents Michael – a group exhibition featuring work by local artists; Christon Anderson, Sarah Burris, Heather Clements, John "JD" Daniel, Jayson Kretzer, Tammy Marinuzzi, Heather Parker, Margaret Webster, and Mandy Yourick.

The exhibit marks a one-year anniversary of Hurricane Michael. Each artist offers a unique reflection on the storm and its aftermath, from the mundane “new normal” of the recovery to questions about the changing planet around us. The works in the exhibit are wide-ranging and span across many media. There is drawing, painting, embroidery, collage, assemblage, ceramics, video, and installation. There is sadness, loss, resilience and hope.

The exhibit will run from October 11 to November 8, with an opening reception on the evening of October 11, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The work will be on display in the Amelia Center Gallery (Room 112). Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, please contact Pavel Amromin at pamromin@gulfcoast.edu, 850-872-3886.

Prepare your haunted stories, poems, spoken word, or book excerpts for our October Writer's Gallery!

Come to the Center for the Arts for Bay County's favorite open-mic night for writers from 6pm-7:30pm on the second Thursday of every other month. Doors open at 5:30pm.

Come to share your work or listen to the creative writers of Bay County share theirs! Everyone is welcome to speak or listen!

MORE ABOUT OCTOBER'S THEME
Your work can be about any kind of haunting. It can be about being haunted by love/old friendships or a more traditional ghost story. Whatever haunted means to you, whatever is haunting you, we want to hear about it.

And if you want to get in for free, you have to wear a halloween costume. Otherwise, you have to pay $5 at the door.

TOPICS:

October 17: Haunted
December 12: Winter
February 13: Love
April 9: Spring

Come to the main entrance dressed in in theme-appropriate attire to get in for free:

October 17: Halloween costume
December 12: Ugly (or pretty) Holiday sweater or shirt
February 13: Red or pink clothing or hearts
April 9: Flowers/Floral

OTHERWISE, you have to pay $5 at the door.

As always, it will be a perfect night for kicking back, getting inspired, and having fun listening to the works of some really 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 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!

After Hurricane Michael, artist Paula Rotschafer, spent hours in front of her easel pouring her heart out into watercolor landscapes showing the devastation of Hurricane Michael. The resulting artwork will be showing at the Panama City Center for the Arts from September 27–October 19.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST

Processing her feelings through art has been a coping mechanism for all of Paula’s life. Born in the Nebraska panhandle, Paula grew up in extremely rural ranching communities for all her life, but she had strong role models and mentors to inspire her.

Her paternal grandmother was a dedicated oil painter, and her maternal grandmother was an accomplished painter who was a founding member of a small art gallery. Her father minored in art, and her mother was a grade school teacher, so she received a lot of encouragement and guidance as she honed her creative side.

Paula and her husband were relocated to Travis Air Force base in California after the storm, so much to her disappointment, she won’t be here in person to talk to people and hear stories from survivors. Instead, the Center for the Arts will have a guest book in the gallery where visitors can leave Paula a message.

“I was an awkward, eccentric, imaginative child who didn’t excel in sports, so art was always just my ‘thing,” she said. One of her aunts’ gave Paula a sketchbook and few lessons on perspective and proportion, and she’s been drawing ever since.

“As a child, I frequently made silly drawings and cartoons that made people laugh, and I absolutely adored being able to create something that could have any sort of emotional impact on another person.”

She majored in Professional Art at Doane College and later received a Masters’ in Art History in Lincoln Nebraska. Now, as a military spouse, she is grateful to have her creative skills to fall back on as it is often hard to secure steady, full-time work.

The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College presents Michael – a group exhibition featuring work by local artists; Christon Anderson, Sarah Burris, Heather Clements, John "JD" Daniel, Jayson Kretzer, Tammy Marinuzzi, Heather Parker, Margaret Webster, and Mandy Yourick.

The exhibit marks a one-year anniversary of Hurricane Michael. Each artist offers a unique reflection on the storm and its aftermath, from the mundane “new normal” of the recovery to questions about the changing planet around us. The works in the exhibit are wide-ranging and span across many media. There is drawing, painting, embroidery, collage, assemblage, ceramics, video, and installation. There is sadness, loss, resilience and hope.

The exhibit will run from October 11 to November 8, with an opening reception on the evening of October 11, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The work will be on display in the Amelia Center Gallery (Room 112). Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, please contact Pavel Amromin at pamromin@gulfcoast.edu, 850-872-3886.

Prepare your haunted stories, poems, spoken word, or book excerpts for our October Writer's Gallery!

Come to the Center for the Arts for Bay County's favorite open-mic night for writers from 6pm-7:30pm on the second Thursday of every other month. Doors open at 5:30pm.

Come to share your work or listen to the creative writers of Bay County share theirs! Everyone is welcome to speak or listen!

MORE ABOUT OCTOBER'S THEME
Your work can be about any kind of haunting. It can be about being haunted by love/old friendships or a more traditional ghost story. Whatever haunted means to you, whatever is haunting you, we want to hear about it.

And if you want to get in for free, you have to wear a halloween costume. Otherwise, you have to pay $5 at the door.

TOPICS:

October 17: Haunted
December 12: Winter
February 13: Love
April 9: Spring

Come to the main entrance dressed in in theme-appropriate attire to get in for free:

October 17: Halloween costume
December 12: Ugly (or pretty) Holiday sweater or shirt
February 13: Red or pink clothing or hearts
April 9: Flowers/Floral

OTHERWISE, you have to pay $5 at the door.

As always, it will be a perfect night for kicking back, getting inspired, and having fun listening to the works of some really 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 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!
