What we're about

Orlando Artists, ART+PHOTOGRAPHY is a group for individual artists, photographers, art enthusiasts, and art patrons, NOT BUSINESSES wanting to advertise. If you are a business and want to advertise to our members, please contact Russel Barton, Organizer

We are heavily focused on the work that is created here in Orlando and Central Florida, whether by established professional artists or photographers, shown in galleries, festivals and museums which we promote, or by the fresh new beginner who has never shown work to the outside world. We welcome all forms of visual art, from painting, drawing, photography, sculpture.

If you are new to the region, our posts will help you find arts related resources and social connections that you are seeking.

On our calendar, you will find posts for events by museums, Galleries, schools. You will find regular social events revolving around the arts that occur each month. These are meant as opportunities to meet, talk and get to know other artists, art lovers, or patrons.

We will also hold events centered around our own member art and art-making, such as workshops, studio or plein air gatherings, and focus meetings. Again, input on desired events and help organizing them would be greatly appreciated. Your group will work best as artists working together with all our vastly different talents and strength, so please get involved--we have only provided a simple armature for communication.
