Yes, Art & History together north Orlando. 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. Yes, Art & History together here in Central Florida!
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. There is even an outdoor chapel and courtyard with wonderful Mayan themed artwork. Don’t forget about the fabulous gift shop too!
Remember, that is Art & History together, here in beautiful Maitland Central Florida!
