The Pittmann-Puckett Art Gallery was named in memory of two of Affirmations' founding members and strongest supporters, Susan Pittmann and Christine Puckett. The couple was killed in their home by a neighbor in 1992. For more information about their story, visit the Pittmann-Puckett Documentary website.
The gallery is an exhibition and performance space intended for the presentation of work by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender artists. Available to established and emerging artists, especially those whose work speaks to or about the LGBT community, the Pittmann-Puckett Art Gallery is a space for artists to exhibit and sell their work, for presenting benefit exhibits, lectures, workshops, meditation sessions, and as a comfortable meeting place.
