Walk the walk for art

Walk the walk for art

July 9, 2014

Put on your comfy shoes: The week is packed with several monthly art walks all around Central Florida.

  • Celebrate art on the Fourth

    July 3, 2014

    Every day is an "art day," even the Fourth of July. There are several art happenings on Friday and through the holiday weekend.

  • Art events will entertain holiday guests

    June 26, 2014

    Fourth of July is next weekend, but already friends and family — and their kids — are showing up to stay with us. They're in every available space in our home and beach house. Thank the Lord for air mattresses! Here are some ideas to get them out of the house. More suggestions in next week's column, too.

  • A tale of 2 studios

    June 18, 2014

    "In the Artist's Studio," the annual fundraiser for the Downtown Arts District, is June 26 at The Abbey in downtown Orlando. This year's honoree is Aithan Shapira, whose abstract paintings have been shown all over the world including the Royal Academy of Art in London. From 6-9 p.m., you'll have a chance to meet the artist, bid on items at a silent auction, enjoy an exhibition of Shapira's works, and listen to an onstage interview of the artist by WKMG's Mark McEwen, with time for Q&A from the audience. (BTW I was the honoree last year and this event is a blast for both the artist and audience.) This is truly a unique Orlando happening for art-aholics and supporters. Tickets, $50, include food and drinks and are available at http://www.artiststudio2014.eventbrite.com. The Abbey is at 101 Eola St. Details: 407-648-7060.

  • Art, music, food at expo

    February 17, 2011

    It's hard to believe that the Orlando Downtown Art & Living Expo will be seven years old this weekend. It seems like yesterday when I attended the first show near the Lake Eola Park bandshell. This ever-growing outdoor show now takes up the eastern end of the park AND is spilling over onto Robinson Street (where you'll find the juried Madonnari competition). Madonnari are street painters who transform streets and sidewalks into art masterpieces with colored chalk, a tradition dating to the 16th century in Italy. There also will be 200 artists and craftsmen, street performers, children's activities, food and concerts. The free event is Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
