“We’ve always been big fans…we’re so appreciative and so proud of the Albrecht-Kemper. We go to museums around the world and we’re so proud of what little St. Joe has in the Albrecht-Kemper. It’s really a fantastic gallery.” – artist and AKMA member Jim Lawrence

The AKMA gallery includes colonial portraits, American landscape paintings, as well as well-renowned works showcasing Indigenous people and the American West. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum hosts 12 exhibitions per year highlighting works from regional emerging artists.
