Motel Studio Art Exhibits will showcase the works of 19 Central Florida artists, including the color-soaked canvases of Julio Sanchez (Julsan), the dream-like treescapes of Brandy Renee, and the sumptuous silk paintings of Crealde’s Henry Sinn. Other featured artists include Robin Pedrero and Berto Ortega, FAVO resident artists; Rob Reedy from UCF; Gail Peck, Todd K Fox, Aimee Wheaton, Renee Wilson, Folk Artist Linda Schapper, Bonnie Sprong, Maryse Jupillat, Robert Parman, Rodney Mcpherson, FAVO Director Will Benton and Fritz the Artist, Jeanie Albers, and Pedro Brull.
Guests are encouraged to check out the FAVO Gallery, a new addition to the property, displaying original art from local artists and friends of FAVO. All proceeds and donations to the FAVO Gallery on March 1 will go directly to the renovations of the FAVO property.
FAVO offers a unique destination for those who want to support Orlando’s growing arts community. “You’re not just coming to have dinner or go shopping,” Executive Director Will Benton says. “You are meeting artists and seeing the new pieces they’ve created. You have an opportunity to buy an original or a print, or a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. The motel setting lends itself to exactly what we want to do, which is to give back to the community.”
Faith Arts Village Orlando (FAVO) is an outreach ministry of Park Lake Presbyterian Church that serves the faith community, art community, and the visiting public. We invite you to partner with us in this creative endeavor, to enhance our city, to create a village where artists and the community can gather, and to reach out to the under-served people around us in creative ways.
The mission of FAVO is to encourage art as an expression of faith.
