|Hawthorne Park Fine Arts Show (Leesburg, FL) Feb 24, 2013|
I am finally getting to the end of my two-year term as chairman of the Fine Arts group here in my retirement park. It's really a great park and has so much to offer! The arts is really valued here and that is one of the reasons I was drawn here!
The show mainly features original art in all mediums... but there are always 3 special tables. This year one of them was dedicated to Zentangles. I am standing in front of the tables.
The "reception" is from 1-4 in the great hall and we had I think well over 300 people...maybe more. People came and went all afternoon. Violins/pianos played in the background, punch and cookies were served, and people chatted and enjoyed and discussed the art. It is not a judged show...just a display of great talent. One section is set aside for photography as well.
A delightful and successful tribute to art here in Central Florida among the seniors. (But it is nice to have it finished with too.)
