’Spectrum of Creativity’ exhibit recognizes local students, emerging artists

The City of Ocala and Magnolia Art Xchange teamed up to recognize students and emerging artists through their “Spectrum of Creativity” competition recently.

The competition saw artists in three divisions compete according to their respective years of experience, from high school students to artists with 1 to 5 years of experience, and artists with 6 to 10 years of experience.

Participating artists had the opportunity to win prizes and a chance at winning some of the $2,000 in awards, including scholarships to the College of Central Florida. Winners included Dan McCarthy in the division of artists with 6 to 10 years of experience, and Emily Lane Ferguson in the division of artists with 1 to 5 years of experience.

For more information on the winners and their works of art, visit the Ocala Cultural Arts website.

The Spectrum of Creativity exhibit is currently on display in the first and second floor lobby of Ocala City Hall (110 SE Watula Avenue), from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The works will be on display until July 7, 2021.
