Art from the Heart of Florida.
The two-venue exhibition is inspired by the diversity of talented visual artists who call Central Florida home. There is a certain “Florida state of mind” that is reflective of the art produced in the center of the state. The focus of the show is to highlight the work of area artists representing diverse media, including ceramics, sculpture, paintings and photography. Curated by Executive Director Peter Schreyer and Director of Painting & Drawing Henry Sinn.

Pave the Way to Art
a New Parking Lot
Click the Power2Give link above and contribute
to our "Pave the Way to Art" campaign.
Help us turn our gravel lot into a beautiful asphalt-paved parking lot to host the weekly average of 1,200 students and visitors to Crealdé School of Art. Currently, folks have to trudge through mud in the rainy season and clean the dust off their vehicles in the dry season. 3,000 students a year come to us for field trips and the school bus drivers have to worry about getting stuck in the muck! We want the whole experience of being at Crealdé to be a good one! Since 2000, two classrooms, a second gallery and a sculpture garden have been added to the campus, and the number of students attending the school has doubled! It’s time for a paved parking lot. Thank you!
