Live Painting with Theresa

February 7th, 2016

Theresa loves animals and we love the way she paints them! Sunday afternoon Theresa spent several hours with happy pet owners who made a donation to Spay N'Save in exchange for a very personal portrait of their special pet. Smiles all around!

Gigantic Fun with Theresa Disney!

January 8th, 2016

Our favorite snowbird has arrived for her annual winter residency. Theresa Disney is painting up a storm in preparation for the January 23rd opening of "Welcome to My World."

Since a big part of her artwork is inspired by her wacky sense of humor, FUN is always on the agenda when she's in town. We love that about Theresa.

We'll be throwing a doozy of a party, so if you are near Central Florida, please put us on your calendar for a spectacular event, January 23 from 6 to 9pm.  If you know Theresa, it won't surprise you to see a strolling monkey who plays guitar and sings. Join us for food, fun, and games! Festive dress-up is encouraged. Come as your favorite color or circus character.

Here come the Holidays

November 14th, 2015

We take great pleasure in welcoming visiting artists during the holiday season. Darlene Allen and Melissa Menzer are pictured. They make it merry and bright around here. With our Holiday Open House kick off on the 14th of November, we begin to focus on the fun of giving special gifts. The gallery will be chock full of artful and unique treasures. We hope you can stop by and catch some of the cheery spirit.

A Butch Anthony Look-alike Pays a Visit

August 28th, 2015

Howdy y'all. Butch couldn't make it to the opening reception for Needle and Thread, so we arranged for his charming look-alike to stand in for him. Authentic wardrobe provided by Butch himself.

This show draws smiles, oooohs, and ahhhhhs. With his keen wit, Butch has added pithy captions to the antique skeletized portraits and embroidery on the lush canvases.

It's a humdinger of a show. We hope you can stop by for a visit!

Sarah Rakes and Mike Esslinger Visit

July 25th, 2015

The gallery got a dose of happy when Sarah and Mike visited on July 24 and 25 for the summer show, In Full Bloom. Both Sarah's paintings and Mike's metal art draw their inspiration from the garden.
