Celebrate Art

Explore, Learn, Admire & Participate!

It’s time to consider artistic adventures! Visiting your local art gallery is an excellent idea for a date, a fun afternoon or any occasion. The Winter Garden Art Association invites you to inspire freely, explore, participate and appreciate the arts in our community at the SOBO Gallery & Art Center.

Workshops & Master Classes: Technique Tuesdays have successfully been launched recently. They start at 2 PM every week as part of their open art studio workshops. Each Technique Tuesday workshop is designed to be different, with an instructor to help inspire you with a variety of visual art mediums and techniques. Once you step into the large open SOBO Art Studio, you will capture the motivating vibe while by making new friends and sharing creative ideas. In addition, some complimentary art supplies are shared.

Even though each artist individually creates their own inspirations and artwork, the dynamic of working together is extremely motivating. Executive Director Phil Self notes, “The Technique Tuesday experience parallels musical sessions. You need a community of inspired artists and art to succeed. I am an advocate for all of our art and artists. I want each of our WGAA artists to know and respect each other. This new Technique Tuesday workshop model will actively build a real sense of an exciting art community here in Winter Garden.”

SOBO Art Gallery is excited to offer a Master Class from noted artist Oliver Sinon from March 6-10, 2022. In addition, they have reinstated children’s art classes.

 

Artists Invited! The Women’s Living Legacy art show goes on display with an opening reception on February 3 from 5:30 to 8 PM. In addition, WGAA hosts numerous special art show exhibitions during the year, as well as opportunities for featured artists to showcase their artwork. The entire community is openly invited to register online for their free newsletter, so you will be able to learn about all art shows, workshops, opening reception celebrations and special events. Each new art show presents about 50 to 60 pieces of original artwork for preliminary judging and acceptance.

WGAA supports their artists and the entire community by showcasing their artwork in numerous locations throughout the city. In addition, they have started a series of decorative downtown art murals with their Orange Tree Swing and The Hummingbird. So get ready for their Arts In April gala event planned for Saturday night, April 30, 2022.

 

Vision & Mission: The WGAA vision is to be an integral part of the community’s cultural and educational framework while having a positive impact on Winter Garden. Their mission is to encourage individual creativity and artistic expression while promoting community involvement and cooperation, as well as to advance the appreciation, education, and availability of Visual and Cultural Arts. The Winter Garden Art Association is a 501-C3 non-profit association. Their objective is to continually expand public access to all forms of fine art by maintaining a beautiful gallery facility with programs that will nurture the individual and foster growth in the arts. The SOBO Art Gallery facility provides space to educate, explore, experience, and celebrate the many aspects of visual art and culture.

Phil Self, Executive Director, notes, “I try to instill visions that will inspire our artists. I believe that inspiration for a Fine Artist comes from within. So we work hard to create a sense of vitality here at the SOBO Art Gallery for our artists and our community.”
