Get your Halloween party started early and join us for the 5th annual Preview Party and Champagne Reception (6 – 8pm). We'll be serving delectable treats and Jeanine's signature blood orange champagne cocktails. You'll enjoy mingling with the artists, getting a first look at their wares and the opportunity to buy early.
Step in front of the antique hearse parked outside and get your picture taken with a costumed character. The $20 ticketed event includes re-entry to the show on Saturday. Reservations must be made in advance by telephoning the gallery at 407-323-2774.
This spirited showcase for Halloween art enthusiasts is in its fifth year and has outgrown the gallery space. Join us at The Sanford Civic Center for the only show of its kind on the East coast.
Saturday’s show is open to the public from 10am to 4pm and will showcase a wide variety of Halloween art including paper mache collectibles, art dolls, felted creations, and clay figures. All items are original and hand-made. Entry is $5 cash at the door.
Inspired by their childhood fascination with Halloween, the selected artists come from as far away as Indiana, New York and Texas. The 2014 Spirits in Sanford artists include Mary Bell, Monine Brocco, Robert Brawley, Kim Brown, Adriana Esqueda, Debb George, Melissa Menzer, Jamie Moore, Dani Nelson, Marguerite Noschese, Jorge de Rojas, Art Rogers, Carly Smith, and Iva Wilcox. Several of the artists have appeared in national publications like Art Doll Quarterly, Prims, and Somerset Holidays and Celebrations.
Passionate collectors seeking handmade and one of a kind offerings will want to come early for the best selection of this edgy and spirited holiday art show and sale.
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.

Allison and Midge will be bringing fresh new work to the gallery for the Holiday Open House. Fabric collages with handpainted and stitched textiles will delight the eye. No doubt a few crows will be part of the collection, done in Midge's trademark "grunge stitching" style.
