A creative oasis. 

We pride ourselves on three things; bringing high level gallery exhibits to Orlando, giving the dedicated talent in Orlando access to the venue they deserve, and engaging our community by creating a positive and infectious atmosphere with art as its core motivator.

 

Patrick McGrath Muniz at HENAO Center - For our 5th Feature Art Exhibit in Orlando, FL, we showcased the sculptures of Kevin Haran, works from Chicago printmaker Carlos Barberena, and featured on this video, the work of Nationally recognized painter Patrick McGrath Muniz. As a real craftsman, Patick McGrath creates everything from scratch, mixing his own pigments and creating his own frames and retablos in the way of old masters. 

Chase Shelle Album Release: High on Maybe - We were SO completely blown away by her performance, we had to have her back for an an encore. Chase Shelle is an amazingly talented and dedicated musician working in a blend of rock and jazz that is soulful, unique and refreshing. 

Dream Catchers - A very elegant, classy mix of paintings by award winning painter Lillian Verkins with sculptures by equally prolific, talented, and award winning sculptor Fay Samimi. It was quite a beautiful 6 week show spanning June and July of 2016 and curated by none other than Josh Garrick. If you missed it, follow us on Facebook and don't miss whats next
