Where: Showalter Hughes Community Gallery
Saturday, June 4, 2011
At the Showalter Hughes Community Gallery May 6 to August 6
Storytellers XIV: The New Face of Rural Communities in Central Florida
From May 6 to August 6, 2011 in the Showalter Hughes Community Gallery, be sure to see the exhibit Storytellers XIV: The New Face of Rural Communities in Central Florida. Storytellers XIV is a photographic outreach program by Crealdé School of Art produced in partnership with the Hope CommUnity Center in Apopka, and St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Mt. Dora. Using words and pictures, young photographers from Central Florida's diverse communities give us insight into their changing worlds.
This year the participants are from the rural communities of Zellwood, Sorrento and Mt. Dora, including: Fernando Balderas, Marla Balderas, Arcadio Espinoza, Chastity Espinoza, Pablo Garcia, Bianca Orozco, Elexia Orozco, Maria Ramirez, Vincente Rodriguez, Alfonso Sanchez, Erika Sauceda, and Maurilio Sauceda. They were instructed by photographer Anna Maria Jannotti and assistant Brian David Becker.
A PUBLIC RECEPTION will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2011 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Showalter Hughes Community Gallery at Crealdé School of Art. Meet the young photographers and enjoy a dance performance by Sin Fronteras, "Without Borders," during the reception; refreshments and Mexican finger foods provided.
A brief history of the Storytellers program: Since the establishment of the program in 1996 by Crealdé's Executive Director Peter Schreyer, young artists from diverse Central Florida communities have been introduced to storytelling through black and white photography, sharing their unique vision of community, family, and place in history. Students learned to use professional 35mm cameras, allowing them to complete assignments and field trips to tell the story of their everyday lives. They developed their film and learned how to print their own photographs in Crealdé's darkroom facilities. They gathered information about their subjects and worked with instructors to develop picture ideas. In 2010, Storytellers had shifted to the use of digital-SLR cameras as well as computerized editing software. Over the course of the program, students can now learn digital shooting techniques, caption-writing, and photo-editing basics. Storytellers XIV is the second group to use the digital photography lab at Crealdé's Hannibal Square Heritage Center. The lab was established in 2009 thanks to a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Central Florida.
Throughout its existence, the Storytellers program has been funded by a wide range of private foundations and community partners. Past community partners have included BETA Center, the Boys & Girls Club, and the Winter Park Community Center. Travelling exhibitions of Storytellers have been organized by Crealdé, touring Central Florida libraries and community centers, including a showing in the Supreme Court building at our state capital in Tallahassee. In addition, this project has been featured on two covers of Florida Magazine and was voted Best Arts Collaboration in 2000 by United Arts of Central Florida.
Storytellers XIV was funded through a grant from the St. Margaret Mary Outreach Fund, with additional support from Crealdé member Melodi Roberts.
Caption for The Offerings: Here is one of many symbols that are brought to the altar to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe. This tradition happens on December 12th. I have never participated in carrying the symbols, but would love to do it some year. A lot of people go to this celebration and I like going as well. -Pablo Garcia, Storytellers XIV

Find out which Lincoln assassination conspirator has ties to Central Florida and is buried here. Hear music of the era, listen to letters exchanged between a soldier and his wife during the war, and children can try on clothing of the era. Included in general admission.*

The Confident Line: Henry Patrick Raleigh
May 14 - September 11, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 14 6p.m. -8p.m.
Henry Patrick Raleigh (1880-1944) spent decades navigating high society and portraying opulent life as one of America's highest paid illustrators. He took his first job as a sketch artist for the San Francisco Examiner. While there, publishing mogul William Randolph Hearst noticed his talent and encouraged him to move to New York City.
Raleigh continued newspaper work while also creating illustrations for iconic publications such as Harper's Bazaar, The Saturday Evening Post, Vanity Fair and Colliers. Some of the greatest writers of the day, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, sought after Raleigh. Fitzgerald even wrote a fan letter saying, "Honestly, I think they're the best illustrations I've ever seen!"
Raleigh led a small pack of illustrators in this time called the "Golden Age of American Illustration." Improvements in printing technology freed illustrators to experiment with color and bold draftsmanship. His "confident line" created a portrait of American aspirations.
Art and History Museums, Maitland is proud to exhibit a selection from the Raleigh Archive, courtesy of collectors Kate and Chris Raleigh.
