Celebrating over 70 Years of Fine Art and Friendship

Message from President Lee Asta

Dear fellow OAG members,

“GONE FISHING!”-years ago people who owned Mom and Pop businesses often hung a sign on their door indicating they were closing and going on vacation and their clientele worked around that announcement. I am happy to announce that those words are NOT in the OAG vocabulary for this coming summer! As always, your Board and its various committees continue to work steadfastly to develop a year of activities that will enhance and enrich your lives.

Debbie Ceres, our First Vice President, works continuously developing the venues for our art and its appreciation. Check the website often for new developments!

Our Second Vice President, Susan Fink, is once again developing exciting and educational demonstrations as well as trips and luncheons to enable our members to not only expand their art and art knowledge, but also to develop new friendships with varying socialization activities.

Our Recording Secretary, Cathy Burnside, not only keeps us organized and following our By-Laws with the needed paperwork and recording of our meetings but is also actively involved in developing our Book Club further.

Our Corresponding Secretary, Lynn King, is always thinking up ways to raise money with our 50-50 raffles and is busy collecting handmade cards from Artists to acknowledge special events in our members’ lives.

Our beloved Treasurer, Marcelle Schvimmer, always manages to maintain a well-balanced financial record, which is very impressive to me.
(continued ……)

Sincerely, Your President, Leona (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.
