New exhibition showcasing local artists’ works at Orange County Administration Building

A new exhibition at the Orange County Administration Building will showcase the works of two local artists.

The exhibition will open on Monday, February 28, at the building (201 S Rosalind Avenue) and will feature the works of Robert Reedy and Monte Olinger.

Due to safety protocols, there will be two presentations at 5:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Sign up for either presentation by RSVP’ing here.

Robert Reedy is an Orlando-based contemporary American artist who grew up in rural Mississippi. His career spans forty years with works in several mediums including painting, prints, mixed media assemblage, and ceramics. He is a professor of art at UCF where he developed the Advanced Design Lab program to partner businesses with design students. Reedy’s work has been featured at numerous national and international galleries and museums, including The Museum of American Art at The Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC, The American Crafts Museum in New York, and The Museum of American Ceramics in Pomona, CA.

Monte Olinger is a Florida native raised in a family of artists and art teachers and grew up with painting as a way of life. His art is an expression of movement and color, often depicting the light and lines of Nature and its surrounding structure. As a lifelong resident of Florida, he draws upon many of its elements to create works on paper and canvas. Olinger severed as Creative Director at Baker Barrios Architects for 18 years, served the City of Orlando as past president of the Downtown Arts District and as a member of the Public Art Advisory Board. He now dedicates himself to further developing his painting and artistic expressions full time.

The Art in the Chambers—Robert Reedy Exhibition and Art in the Atrium—Monte Olinger Exhibition will both be on display in the Orange County Administration Center through the end of March.
