Welcome to Artisans on fifth
Affordable Art and Gifts
Artisans on fifth, (yes, it's a small "f"), is a Florida not-for-profit artist's co-operative gallery in Mount Dora, Florida. Since opening it's doors in 2009, the co-operative continues to feature the work of over 20 local area artists showcasing a range of media. Artwork includes: paintings in all media, fiber art couture, glass, photography, woodworking, bottle lamps, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, hand-crafted soaps and much more .... from the extraordinary to the sublime.
Each month there are different artists featured in the alcove at Artisans. To see who they are go to the page that contains the words "Artists of the Month". Artisans is the perfect place to find the perfect gift, whether to indulge yourself or delight someone special. Be sure to visit Artisans often, as the artwork is constantly replenished with new and exciting creations. Artisans is a destination for our northern visitors, day trippers from both coasts and area residents. Artists are on site daily.
Artisans is unique to the area in that its members are juried into the co-op, and provide the staffing and business acumen necessary to operate the business. Additionally, the group also participates in a number of charitable causes, and holds a fundraiser, Bra-Vo, each fall to raise funds for women in need of mammograms.
Artisans also awards an art scholarship each year through the Marilyn Dodge Scholarship Fund. Associates donate artwork monthly that is raffled off to raise money for this charitable cause.
During the month of May each year Artisans sponsors a Student's Exhibit. Local art students have an opportunity to have their artwork displayed in a gallery setting for free.
Members of the Mount Dora Center for the Arts also receive a 10% discount on all purchases, and memberships may be purchased at the shop. Artisans is always seeking new member artists, and those interested in applying for membership should click here to go to the "Joining Artisans" page.
We would like to welcome our new Associates Lee Kline and Christina Coalter.
