The inaugural Mennello Museum Invitational, a group exhibition at The Mennello Museum of American Art, highlights new work by contemporary regional artists whose art enriches our community and our lives in Central Florida. A goal of the exhibition is to share the work of local artists, with a broader audience and encourage collecting art on a local level.
Open on Valentine’s Day, February 14, this exhibition, on view in the museum’s Marilyn Gallery, serves a a heart-filled embrace of our creative community, provides an opportunity to experience work fresh out of the studios, and delivers a contemplation of current thought, interest, and inspiration driving the ambitions of ten Orlando-based artists in dialogue with one another.
The Invitational aims to share recent work in painting and sculpture and a variety of expressions and interests within each medium from abstraction to representational; from marble to clay, and from oil to acrylic. Inaugural artists include Victor Bokas, Shosh C., Mindy Colton, Nancy Jay, Richard Munster, Jackie Otto Miller, Victor Quino, Maria Ramos, Paul T. Scarborough, and Katty Smith, all artists contributing to the quality of our creative life in Orlando.
