Our second stop on Saturday was at the Florida Artists Gallery in Floral City for the family event “Arts for All”.
Anyone that is from this area knows that the drive from Crystal River (where we stopped first and I posted about yesterday) to Floral City is about 45 minutes.
But, anytime that the Florida Artists Gallery is having an event, it is worth the trip.
I received an email from the Florida Gallery on the 8th (Wednesday). Here’s an excerpt from that email:
“Please join us on Saturday (April 11th) for our first major outdoor family event “Arts for all“. At least 14 of our artists will be demonstrating their art forms, be it wood carving, painting eggs, making jewelry or painting paintings in various mediums. Food will be available, and there will be flow arts – family yoga and hula hoops, wine tasting and live music throughout the day, culminating with the Citrus County Drum Circle starting at 4.30pm. From 1-2pm Vanessa Fuller-Brown will hold a free painting workshop for children.”
Artisans were located throughout the grounds demonstrating their craft. Kids were discovering the arts through hands on demos.
The gallery was wonderful as usual.
And there were a lot of people there.
An auto-harp demonstration was scheduled for later in the afternoon but we weren’t able to stick around for that. And we didn’t have enough time to check out the other shops in Floral City or the heritage museum.
There’s just so much going on in this little town. Such a difference from our visit to Heritage Village in Crystal River.
