With a rich history, dating Back to 1927, a one-time parking garage now rests under the St. Augustine sun. The artist-run Butterfield Garage has experienced tremendous success, both in providing a positive social atmosphere for locals, and as a destination for visitors, art enthusiasts to communicate in a lively, yet inviting atmosphere.
The driving force of encouraging and finding a way to bring direct dialogue into the relationships between Featured Artists and Butterfield Garage visitors has evolved into a successful decade carousel of cultural progress and social significance for the Saint Augustine area.
Showcasing only the most talented and distinguished Artists, ‘First Friday’ Exhibitions have become a ‘social phenomenon’ of sorts to the area, bringing an element of both Art and Awakening. Artists are able to communicate directly with their fans and interested visitors, building personal relationships and additional exposure.
Artists such as Cheryl Gibbs and Kathryn Carlyle, of CarlyleGibbs, also become a permanent place in the evolving masterpiece of community integration and creative visualization in Art presented by the Butterfield Garage ‘First Friday’ Exhibition.
Having opened to the public in 1999, Butterfield Garage Art Gallery, revered to showcase only the most distinguished and talented creators of visual arts for the Butterfield Garage signature ‘First Friday’ Exhibitions, will be inviting the talented visions of metal-weaving precision created by Carlyle Gibbs for the September Exhibition.
