The Ocala Art Group (OAG) is hosting a lecture by acclaimed artist Curtis Arnett, one of the original Florida Highwaymen, on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 from 11 am to 1 pm in the auditorium of the Appleton Museum of Art, 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd, Ocala, FL 34470.

Arnett is one of the youngest of 26 African-American artists who traveled the highways of I-95 and A1A decades ago, who later became known as The Highwaymen. They sold their Florida landscape paintings inexpensively which today are widely sought after for their historical value.  Many of these paintings can be found on public display in banks, office buildings and private homes throughout Florida and the United States.

You won’t want to miss this program that will include a history of Mr. Arnett’s life, his journey as one of the Florida Highwaymen and a demonstration of his art.  This event will undoubtedly excite and inspire artists as well as art enthusiasts.  The program is free to members of the Ocala Art Group and the Appleton Museum of Art.   If you are not a member, you may join prior to the program.  Please contact Richard Woy at (352) 598-9069 or for more information.
