Sanford Art Walk To Feature Former Fitz & Floyd Christmas Ornament Designer


The February 2013 Sanford Art Walk will feature Florida-based self-taught folk artist Toni McCorkle. Her work has been featured at the American Folk Art Museum in New York City and at galleries nationwide.  

The mother and cancer survivor is a former designer of Christmas ornaments for Fitz & Floyd.  She's been featured in Country Living and Better Homes and Gardens.  

Also on display this month at the Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery will be the 2013 collection by Theresa Disney who has spent the last six months in and out of the hospital and a wheelchair while undergoing chemotherapy.  Her work is a fun celebration of life with bold colors and quirky characters. 

The monthly art walks take place from 6-9pm on the fourth Friday in a pedestrian friendly shopping corridor in downtown Sanford, Florida. Enhanced by live music venues, wine bars, and award winning restaurants, the event is blocks from the scenic RiverWalk promenade along the St. Johns River. Admission is free.  

The event features Central Florida's only monthly juried art show with both a "Best in Show" award chosen by a panel of judges and a "People's Choice" award chosen by the attendees of the show.
