Bowersock Gallery Mount Dora and Lynn Libby will be participating in the 40th Annual Mount Dora Fine Arts Festival.
February 7 and 8, 2015
Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm


 A juried fine arts festival, for art lovers, casual festival-goers and families, nothing compares to the Mount Dora Arts Festival.

Downtown Mount Dora, with its New England architecture and breathtaking views of Lake Dora is the backdrop for this event. In addition to the endless rows of fine art, including oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, clay, sculpture and photography, the festival features local and regional musical entertainment at a main stage in Donnelly Park.

Festival food will be provided in separate food courts and local downtown restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisine. Be kind to your pets — leave them at home when you visit the Festival.

Darlou Gams Megan Howland Catherine Nash

Stake your claim during Holly Folly weekend AND beyond! We're featuring small works throughout the month of December exhibiting quality artwork on small canvases, produced by four renowned artists.

The goal for our tenth year is to put art in more homes and there's no better way, to start or augment a collection, than buying small; it's a 'take two, they’re tiny' affair, an art collector’s dream.

WILLIAM THOMSON (March 16, 1931 - October 9, 2014)


His work runs the gambit: landscapes, cityscapes, interior and figurative works, in either acrylic, encaustic, egg tempera, oil or watercolor, most often in warm, rich, earth tones.

There is a power in his works which defies definition. Each, even the most abstract, is imbued with such a strong sense of emotion that it’s impossible not to feel moved. Bill works in all kinds of mediums from acrylic, encaustic, egg tempera, oil to watercolor but somehow they all tie together producing an amazing image. The discovery of how mediums operate, individually or in combination, is what drives this artist.
