“The artists are established favorites and emerging newcomers from Lake and surrounding counties, as well as Washington, New York, Atlanta, South Dakota and Louisiana,” Executive Director Susan Loden says. “There are many astonishing paintings and collage, along with unique cuttings, books and sculpture. Artist Charlene Thomas, of Winter Park, entered a charming collection of two dozen of her miniature paintings housed inside a dollhouse she transformed into an art gallery sculpture".
“The art is so terrific, we decided to go beyond the museum’s official, juried Purchase Award to give the public and the artists a say in which additional paper work deserves special recognition,” says Loden. “There is an example of every exhibitor’s work on our Website, so it’s easy to choose an artist for which to vote by submitting that artist’s name along with payment. The artist may also vote and an individual may split his or her multiple votes among several artists.”
