Celebrating 72 Years of Fine Art and Friendship

Message from President Lee Asta

Happy New Year to you ALL!!! Hope you have already written those RESOLUTIONS, with the first one being that you are entering our February Fine Arts Show, “REFLECTIONS”, at the Brick City Art Center. As I have stated in the past, this is a VERY important art show for OAG; we have a lot depending on it for our future and as an art group. We need everyone’s support on this venue. Jan Tindall and Iris Kaplan have been working on this for months to make this an exceptional show, but we need you and your art!

This is our most esteemed and challenging show of the year with jurying and judging along with a beautiful reception and monetary prizes. Unfortunately, due to the change in policy of the Brick, the show will not be the usual month-long event, but we hope to make it as exciting as all our past shows and hopefully we will attract family and friends to our Saturday afternoon reception, so we can go out to a nice early Saturday dinner afterwards, which will be a change to the usual routine. THANKS to JAN TINDALL: there is NO PAPER APPLICATION form to be filled! More information here.

Your President,
       Lee Asta

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.
