Three new exhibits just opened at the fabulous Art & History Museums – Maitland. Just minutes away from our Central Florida Bed & Breakfast Thurston House , you can hop in your car or take a short stroll over there.
Exhibit #1 – The Maitland Art Center continues to honor the legacy of founder Andre Smith by bringing back the Artist-In-Residence Program. The first artist who has spent 6 weeks living and working on the grounds is Josette Urso. She worked primarily in the gardens making oil paintings, watercolors and drawings.
Exhibit #2 – Heavy Metal – No, not music but abstract arrangements of painted metal and found remains, innovative works by Rocky Bridges.
Exhibit #3 – Family Ties – No, not the TV show! With this interactive exhibition you can learn how to trace your own ancestry while you explore the history of Maitland’s founding families.
Such a unique and wonderful facility, a place where you could easily spend a few hours just enjoying the gardens and gallery. Don’t forget about the fabulous gift shop too!
