Paint the Town

For Orlando magazine’s 10th annual Paint the Town exhibit, we asked local artists to send us their paintings, photographs, sculptures and other works inspired by their visions of Orlando. More than 80 artworks were picked for the show, and some of them are displayed on the following pages. The winners were selected by Jeffrey Shonkwiler, director of the Gallery at Avalon Island; Robin Van Arsdol, owner of Realm 54 art studio; and Jason Jones, Barry Glenn and Christine Cerniglia of Orlando magazine. The selected entries will be included in the Paint the Town show, which opens March 15 at the Gallery at Avalon Island. 

What: 10th Annual Paint the Town Exhibition
When: March 15-April 13
Where: Gallery at Avalon Island, 39 S. Magnolia Ave., Orlando
Opening: March 15, 6-9 p.m., during the Third Thursday Gallery Stroll

You should have at least listed the other artists who were out of town during the photo session. They have been completely overlooked don't you think?
