We’re looking forward to attending the 2nd Friday Art Stroll in downtown Mount Dora this Friday night, May 8, 2015. The Mount Dora Center for the Arts produces the monthly event, and this Friday it will premiere a new juried still life exhibit entitled Shape and Shadow. Thirty-one artists from around the country were chosen to be showcased, which features works done in oil, acrylic, pastel, and photography.
The 2nd Friday Art Stroll is a monthly event held on the second Friday of each month (hence the name!) from 6 to 8 p.m., and features many participating art galleries and working studios throughout downtown Mount Dora. Be sure and drop by the Mount Dora Center for the Arts Gallery, 138 East Fifth Avenue, Mount Dora, Florida 32757, for the opening of the Shape and Shadow exhibit, featuring an artists’ reception. From what we’ve seen so far, the exhibit promises to be stunning.
While you’re strolling through downtown Friday night enjoying the art, be sure and stop by the courtyard of the Sunset Building, at 301 E. Baker Street, where local artists will be featuring unique gifts for Mother’s Day, including art, jewelry, and clothing.
