This is one of the Orlando areas great treasures. The carvings and architecture by Andre Smith are beautiful. The grounds and scenery lakeside are worth a leisurely stroll. The gallery offers great exhibits and activities.

Maitland Art Center has earned the Historical designation. Many well-known artists have shown their work at the Center. The architecture is beautiful and unique and interesting. Take a little time and visit. Your favorite artist could be having a show.
