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. Svejda also offers art classes, currently hosted online via a private Facebook group.
The Studio Art Farm is located in the Fuller Building at 120 E. 4th Avenue next to the new Magic Tea Market, a bubble tea shop, which is expected to open later this month. Recently, two new stores, Ivy Boutiqueand Stitch & Gather, also opened on 4th across from Magic Tea. Adding to the number of working artists in Mount Dora's historic district is Wild Ibis Art Studio which recently relocated from its Eustis location into downtown's Renaissance Building
