As a company, we realize that the local art market is full of today’s innovative and talented future masters. In order for us to be a part of this movement, “Second Fridays” was created.
The “Second Fridays” event at Baterbys provides a positive social platform for the Orlando art community. The event started with the artist competition, “Best Artist in Florida” in our area. We welcomed six brilliant individuals whose artworks were featured in our gallery. This evolved into providing a positive social evening for art lovers all around our city.
“Second Fridays” fills the gallery with people who enjoy beautiful artworks while keeping company with today’s upcoming gifted artists. Artists like Robin Pedrero, Kenneth Aunchman and Elaine Murphy amongst others demonstrated their talents by doing a live painting exhibit. This not only gave them the opportunity to make new admirers, but also show the current collectors what’s new and current within their collection.
For the next couple of events we are going back to the origin of how “Second Fridays” was created. We are proud to introduce our 2012 Artist Competition: Special Olympics competition.
We are currently accepting the work of local upcoming artists into our competition. If you’d like to participate, complete the registration form and let us know when we are to expect your artwork. Early submission in ends on July 12th, your artwork will be featured at our Second Fridays: 2012 Artist Competition opening night. All other submissions will need to be turned in by July 24th to be featured on July 27th.
Even if you’re not an artist, come and enjoy our “Second Fridays” events!! There’s something for everyone. So mark your calendars, because this Friday the 13th is a day to be celebrated.
