Celebrating 73 Years of Fine Art and Friendship

Message from President Lee Asta

This is my SECOND Message for this month. After spending over an hour writing my message, I decided that I really needed to address some entirely different subjects because so many of you fail to attend our meetings and we have important things to announce AND HAVE YOUR SUPPORT!! Thus, I have started writing this message anew!

First and foremost, our Artist Book Club will be having a JOINT READING CLUB/meeting with a VILLAGES READING GROUP and OAG’s- on May 2nd, the First Tuesday of the Month. Click here for details…but it will be a very lively discussion. Book: “The Lost Wife”. RSVP Lynn King for Lunch reservations at: [email protected]. GREAT BOOK FOR DISCUSSION!


Our Outreach Committee is doing amazing things for OAG and its future with lots of new VENUES developing. WE are still working out details, but hope to be able to share SOME of them at our April 10th Meeting at the Brick from 11:00-1:00. ALSO, an amazing Demo has been planned by Susan Fink!

Third, a new Survey to see how we can work to make things more appealing and suitable for our Members will be sent out shortly. It is IMPERATIVE that you fill it out and submit it in a TIMELY fashion to have your ideas considered for our future planning. (continued)

The Ocala Art Group was established in Ocala in 1950, making our organization the oldest of its kind in Central Florida. The artists have come and gone through the years, but the quality of the work and the enthusiasm of our members ensure that the arts remain alive and healthy, no matter the economic climate.

The Ocala Art Group is a not-for-profit educational corporation and our membership is open to all who share an interest in developing and promoting fine art. We provide programs, demonstrations and workshops that appeal to every art enthusiast, and we sponsor at least four art shows a year with all member participation.
