A reception will be held tonight, Nov. 9, 2023 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Art in Public Places Gallery in Winter Garden City Hall to celebrate the opening of a new holiday tribute photo and art exhibition called, It's a Wonderful Life in Winter Garden.
According to the Crealdé School of Art's website, the school and the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation partnered "to curate an exhibition of photographs and paintings that celebrate the special character of the historic downtown district."
Led by instructor Cathy Hempel, Crealdé students from the Jesse Brock Community Center created "a series of plein-air paintings depicting familiar and lesser-known scenes of Winter Garden," the website says.
As part of this exhibition, the Heritage Foundation will be featuring archival photographs from B.P. Hannon, a photographer and camera store owner, who captured photos of local life in Winter Garden during the mid-twentieth century.
