On September 15, 2017, Crealdé School of Art, in collaboration with the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation, unveiled The Lake: A Documentary Exploring the Land and People of Lake Apopka. The exhibition is a culmination of work by documentary photographers and plein air painters who sought to capture the culture and landscape of Lake Apopka. 50 fine art pieces were originally exhibited with accompanying historic text, connecting the area’s past with its future. A collection of local and nationally known artists, led by Crealdé Senior Faculty Artist Tom Sadler, produced 10 plein air paintings, and a master class of photographers, led by senior faculty members Peter Schreyer and Sherri Bunye, created 40 archival black-and-white photographs with oral histories. Highlights from the Crealdé traveling exhibition will be on exhibit at Winter Garden City Hall from September 8 to October 31, 2022.

A special reception and Gallery Walk with Project Director Peter Schreyer will be held on Thursday, October 13 from 5–7pm. The Gallery Walk will be at 5:30pm.
