Florida landscape painter Jackie Schindehette and Equine artist Sharon Crute have partnered to help in the revitalization of historic downtown Ocala. Voilart! Art Gallery and Working Studio opens September 1, at 108 East Ft. King Street, just one block south of the Central Square. The public is invited to A Ribbon Cutting Opening Reception scheduled for Friday, September 4 from 5PM-8PM.

The gallery offers the finest in artistic excellence from these two accomplished artists. Sharon Crute’s dynamic paintings are a colorful and bold interpretation of the horse racing industry. Jackie Schindehette’s oil paintings give the viewer a glimpse of old Florida with sweeping vistas and moss draped oaks.

Voilart! Art Gallery is not only a gallery where people can see art at its best but is also a working studio offering the unique opportunity for the public to watch as these two artists actually create paintings from conception to the last brush stroke. Schindehette points out that “Sharon and I will be painting in the studio/gallery and invite people to stop by, sit a while, learn a little more about art and share our passion.”

“The gallery will showcase our own paintings, but we are also on a mission to actively support all cultural events within the community, educate the public about the arts and provide a powerful presence in the downtown art scene”, says co-owner Sharon Crute.

Crute and Schindehette have already begun to work for the arts community. The gallery will be headquarters for all painters participating in the World Wide Plein Air Event to be held September 12 in downtown Ocala from 7 AM - 5 PM. Maps of downtown charting the location of each artist will be handed out so the public can find and watch each artist working.

Original paintings by Crute and Schindehette will be available at Voilart! Art Gallery as well as giclee reproductions and gift items created from works by these two nationally recognized artists.
