The Fellowship of Art in Photography, Ceramics and Sculpture

Since 1978, the Crealdé Fellowship Program has mentored hundreds of students through this work-study exchange; many former Fellows have become professional exhibiting artists.

Business as Community Life: Winter Park 2013

Through Oct. 25 at Crealdé's Hannibal Square Heritage Center. The latest Crealdé School of Art Documentary Project was a collaboration with the Winter Park History Museum. As a reflection of contemporary culture, a cross section of Winter Park busineses was selected to create a valuable historic record for the future. Twelve advanced Crealdé students, under the direction of professional documentary photographers Peter Schreyer and Sherri Bunye, photographed 27 businesses, chosen for their historic architecture or long-term presence in the community.

34th Annual Juried Student Exhibition

Through Oct. 17 at Crealdé's Alice & William Jenkins Gallery. This popular exhibition features some of the year's best student work in painting, drawing, film and digital photography, fiber arts, ceramics and sculpture. The show was juried by the school's Program Steering Committee and judged by longtime Valencia Community College art professor Nancy Jay.

The Last Harvest: A History and Tribute to the Life and Work of the Farmworkers on Lake Apopka

Through Nov. 4 at the Art in Public Places Gallery, Winter Park City Hall. This 1998 Crealdé School of Art Documentary Project traces the life of muck farmworkers whose way of life came to an abrupt end in 1998. Under the guidance of Crealdé documentary photographers Faith Amon and Peter Schreyer, youths from farmworker families were trained in the skills of documentary photography and captured the historic last season of muck farming in Central Florida.
