Artport Gallery

Amid the comings and goings of Tallahassee International Airport, there is an oasis of art known as the Artport Gallery. 

Serving as a cultural gateway to Florida’s capital city, this space highlights the work of local artists and captures the imagination of travelers and citizens alike.

For more than twenty years, COCA has been proud to manage and curate the gallery as part of the City of Tallahassee’s Art in Public Places program. The Artport Gallery exhibits the work of established local and regional artists in all media, primarily through solo or two-person shows which are on display for six to eight weeks.

“Silkscreen printmaking represents a way of utilizing all of my talents (drawing, painting, drafting, collage, etc.) in one medium with the immediacy of color. Within this collection of works – “Crowns, Concerns and Eyes Wide Open” represent multiple sides of my existence as an artist.  One to chronicle events for further discourse; one to celebrate the beauty of black aesthetic; and the other as a combination of the two within the intention of having an open dialogue alongside the appreciation of beauty.”

-Harris Wiltsher
