The Historic Sanford Welcome Center invites all artists to the Sanford Art Walk, a juried art show in the Welcome Center, and a walking tour of art venues located in historic downtown Sanford. The event takes place from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM on the fourth Friday of each month. The event at the Welcome Center will include live music, light refreshments and lots of ART!
The themes and rules are here and application is here.
Our first meeting after summer break will feature a demo by Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson. Well known locally for her wonderful collages, her works are much sought after both here and abroad. It should be lots of fun! And don't forget to bring some of your own artwork for everyone to admire (and also a tasty snack--somehow lemon meringue pie comes to mind!)
In conjunction with Crealde School of Art's 15th Annual Benefit Auction Fundraiser, raffle tickets for an all-expenses paid, deluxe week-long trip for two to Switzerland are available. The trip is designed by Peter Schreyer, Executive Director of Crealde and native of Switzerland. Check here for images and stories from previous tours.
Tickets are $20/each or eight for $100. ALOC could pool their resources and buy blocks of eight for $12.50 each. All proceeds will benefit Crealde. Please call Jerry Bell at 407-672-1001 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to purchase a ticket. Checks should be made out to Crealde School of Art. Please let Jerry know if you want to purchase tickets prior to the next ALOC meeting (Sept. 17th) and he will have them available there.
Crealde's 15th Annual Benefit Auction Fundraiser is the following Saturday, September 24th, and will be held at the Home Builders Association of Metro Orlando located at 544 Mayo Avenue, Maitland, FL 32751 at 6:30 PM.
