The Petticoat Painters is one of the oldest continuously exhibiting women's art groups in the U.S. This group was formed in 1953 to showcase the talents of female artists at a time when women had difficulty in finding venues to show their work.

Willis Smith and Basch Galleries are located on the ground floor of the Academic Center building on the Ringling College campus at 2363 Old Bradenton Rd.
