Florida Cabin Fever Quilt Guild
On display through January 2017
View traditional quilts made by members of the Florida Cabin Fever Quilt Guild. As a charitable and educational organization, the guild brings together experienced and new quilters alike to promote fellowship and love amongst those interested in the art of quilting.
While many think of quilts solely as utilitarian items for the home, quilting as an art form that dates back centuries. From the ornate quilts of older civilizations, to the European silk quilts of the 1700's, these works of art provide a window to the economic, social and historic events of their day.

The Art of Tonyatheassassin
On display through January
"My name is Tonya. I was born and raised in Orlando and Apopka, FL however, Orlando is my hometown. I have been drawing since the age of 5. In 2009, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts with Graphic Design as my major. Since 2011, painting has been my primary focus while continuing to expand my style using bright colors and urban themes. Although I am not into labels, I consider myself to be a person born with a gift and a purpose to express and share my art with the world. I have a love for art in all forms and I am inspired most by the creation of all things. My goal is to inspire anyone I can reach in whatever form or media possible so that we can change the world and continue to push for positivity."
