Formally opened in 1980, the Jenkins Gallery mission is to exhibit the work of noted and established Florida artists, as well as to introduce national and international artists to the Central Florida region. Each of the four to six annual exhibitions are professionally curated by a member of the Crealdé Gallery Committee or a guest curator.

Visionary Bill Jenkins: Crealdé Founder, Artist and Philanthropist
We remember late founder William Sterling Jenkins (1909-1996) in a two-gallery presentation. Trained as an artist in Europe and Mexico in the 1930s, he produced a body of landscape and portrait paintings influenced by the places he traveled to as a young man, and the changing cultural landscape of his native American South.
Curated by Barbara Tiffany, the exhibition paintings are on loan from the University of Central Florida Art Gallery and the Jenkins Family private collection.
Join us November 7 for a special evening that starts at the main campus with a presentation on "The Life, Work and Legacy of Bill Jenkins" from 6-7 p.m., followed by a reception from 7-8:30 p.m.
Then make a short drive to our second campus in Hannibal Square, Winter Park, as the reception continues with jazz by the Per Danielsson Trio at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center.
