CURRENT EXHIBITS

May 1 - June 30

Anna Brunelli reaches into the depths of her feelings and emotions as her inspiration, expressing herself through the vibrant use of color, texture, and diverse subject matter. Born in Transylvania, raised in Italy and migrated to Orlando Florida, Anna is self-taught. Rarely does she begin a painting with the end in mind, but each piece develops and changes with the ebbs and flow of the energy she feels, and that which inspires her at the moment. Anna’s work covers a variety of styles from Fractal Abstract to Impressionistic, always putting her bright, vibrant colorful love of life on canvas. Works by Brunelli will be on display at West Osceola Branch Library in Kissimmee, May 1 through June. Contact marillyn@osceolaarts.org for more information on Art in Public Places.

June 5 - August 23

Central Florida artists Cory and Laura Jurica worked side by side at Disney’s Animal Kingdom as artists maintaining the audio-animatronics skins, show facades, props and ride show vehicles. Years of working and creating side by side evolved their individual creativity into something that is a representation of them as a couple and as a team. Laura is an award-winning photographer and published travel writer who has taken her love of travel and art to create culture inspired pieces that embrace the world we all depend on. Cory’s work has been showcased as a conglomerate collage effort entwining his textured designs with select artisans, some of whose works have displayed in the Smithsonian. The Jurica’s aim is to combine their love of art, culture and their own diverse heritage into works of art that remind their viewers, underneath the clothes and traditions of our cultures we are all the same. The Jurica’s have taken this idea of "man" coming from earth and clay, our part in the circle of life and our dependence on the resources of the earth and created their textured wall hangings from recycled content. Works created by the Jurica’s will be on display on all floors at Kissimmee City Hall from June 5 through August 23.

NEW PUBLIC MURALS PROJECT

Art Transforms-Building a Creative Community

 

Public spaces are essential ingredients in every community.  Public spaces provide opportunities for people to meet and be exposed to a variety of neighbors. ARTisNOW: ​Osceola Arts Public Murals Project​ coming in May 2019, will join talented local artists and community members through the collaborative process of mural-making to create high-quality public murals that transform and revitalize downtown Kissimmee public spaces. This program will provide new ways of looking at the arts as a powerful force to inspire community dialogue, community development, and celebrate local culture.

 

There are  four properties in historic downtown Kissimmee that will be the first to be transformed.

 

This project is scheduled for May 11- May 18, 2019.
