Celebrating 73 Years of Fine Art and Friendship

Message from President Lee Asta

Another lesson learned from your President!

If you are of the same generation as I am, you will probably understand what I am sharing here. Having grown-up during the 50s and 60s, it was always my goal in life to excel in everything I attempted. That includes not only my school marks, but selling Girl Scout cookies, earning Girl Scout badges, and taking part in Classroom art contests. Therefore, you can understand my confusion when I read a recent CAT scan report, which shows the word “Unremarkable“ in several places throughout. Upon consulting several friends in the medical field, I learned that that was a great comment to have. While further testing is required, I am happy to share the news that I am OK health wise, and I can continue to be your president for a fourth and FINAL year.

This message will be short and sweet! We have two beautiful Art Shows coming up soon and we need the support of your art to show the public what OAG can do! We have two marvelous venues worked out that will give us an opportunity to show our creativity to the viewers there. First, we have the Leesburg art show (organized by Susan Fink) with the beautiful theme “A Moment in Time”, which leaves our imagination with lots of artistic and creative opportunities.



Leona (Lee) Asta, President

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.
