The cultural corridor of Historic Downtown Sanford is abuzz with art lovers on the 4th Friday of each month. Join us as we feature a host of different artists and participate in this celebration of the arts community. Six venues are withing walking distance of each other and offer ambience, refreshments, live music and opportunities to meet visiting artists.
Create a memory jar with your own personal mementos while you learn from the best! Folk artist Melissa Menzer will share her sculpting and painting techniques, plus you'll be able to choose items from her vast collection of vintage goodies to add to your jar. Enjoy lunch at one of Sanford’s tasty eateries or bring your own for a brown bag down by the RiverWalk.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, just bring your imagination!
Workshop fee of $85 includes all materials. You may also bring your own items to put inside your jar when finished.

This year’s show will come to life in the central gallery space, with a party table setting for mischievous cats and obedient dogs. Inspired by the poem “The Owl and the Pussycat” Theresa has painted an eight foot panel with a cast of animal characters sailing in a pea-green boat. Fans of her clay birds will be happy to know that a flock of the charming creatures will be flying overhead and also roosting in an antique wren house.
Theresa has also been busy with embroidery needle, thread, and thimbles to turn elegant party dresses into irresistible works of art. The hand painted frocks feature bright flowers and plenty of bling. A man’s tuxedo jacket has been given a dose of her trademark humor with a smiling devil drinking a martini. There are many other surprises in store.
The reception is free and refreshments will be served. Call the gallery for more information, 407-323-2774.
Show runs February 8 - March 2, 2014.
