WHAT IS McRAE ART STUDIOS?

 

McRae Art Studios, Central Florida’s largest artist collective, was founded 30 years ago by George and Marty Whipple in 1987 in Orlando to provide affordable studio space for fine artists. After three moves in Orlando and an 18-year stay in Winter Park, the group has returned to its roots.

 

McRae artists admit new members through a jury process, ensuring high artistic quality and diversity. Its members regularly win top awards in competitions and art festivals and are featured in group exhibitions at Orlando City Hall, Crealde School of Art, and museums and galleries in Florida and beyond.

 

McRae artists work in painting, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics and photography. Their subjects include landscape, portraiture, still life, abstraction, fantasy and surrealism.

 

Throughout the year the group also hosts open houses where thousands of visitors and art collectors stroll through McRae’s studios, meet the artists and purchase art.  As a collective, McRae has produced shows with Leesburg Center for the Arts, Brevard Museum of Art, Orlando Museum of Art (First Thursday Show), Casselberry City Hall (Artists Program), Maitland Art Center, and Winter Park Public Library, and more. We are always open to new venues for group showings. McRae Art Studios is a front door to the careers and businesses of a diverse group of talented artists. Our true light shines from the work each of us creates. We encourage you to contact us individually or as a group. Private showings of the studio are available by appointment.
