For artists, it’s the place to be in Central Florida. As an enclave for creative types, Mount Dora has more than its share of talented artists, and last month another new art gallery and studio opened in the heart of downtown Mount Dora.
Studio Art Farm was opened by Mount Dora artist P.J. Svejda and Orlando-based artist German Lemus just in time to greet visitors at the Mount Dora Arts Festival. Much of the pair’s work is highly illustrative, but the artists differ in style, subject matter and media. The white walls of the gallery also feature the colorful landscape and scenic canvases of Orlando-based artist Heather Nagy and there is still wall space available in the studio for another artist.
Svejda also offers art classes, currently hosted online via a private Facebook group. Lemus, originally from Honduras, now resides in Orlando.
The Studio Art Farm is located in the Fuller Building at 120 E. 4th Avenue between Allyson A. Bakeshop and the new Magic Tea Market currently under construction. The gallery’s hours vary, so visitors are welcome to call ahead at 407- 376-2228.
Recently, Wild Ibis Art Studio and Gallery relocated from its Eustis location into downtown Mount Dora’s Renaissance Building, adding to the number of artists’ working spaces in the historic district.
