Art in the Alley

Christmas lights are ablaze in downtown Mount Dora. On every 2nd Friday of the month, Art in the Alley brings art, music, and more to Mount Dora.  Art and music exhibitors line Royellou Lane, in the heart of downtown Mount Dora, showcasing their original art, handmade goods and acoustic sounds. Downtown galleries have extended hours and are open to the public free of charge.

This is a unique opportunity to experience a vibrant, eclectic mix of emerging and established artists. Start your stroll at the Mount Dora Center for the Arts Gallery (138 East Fifth Avenue
Mount Dora, FL 32757) to pick up the Art in the Alley map. As you stroll down Royellou Lane have your map punched at each of the gallery stops along the way. Once you have visited all of the galleries, bring your completed punched map to the Gatehouse Gallery at the Lakeside Inn (100 Alexander St, Mt Dora, FL 32757) to be entered into a raffle for a special prize. By the way, the rocking chairs on the front port of the Lakeside Inn are a great place to watch the sunset should you want to make an evening of it.

Each month provides new themes and exhibitors to enjoy, completely free of charge. So be sure to stop by each month to see what’s new! The Galleries are open from 6 pm to 8 pm, and the Sidewalk Artists and Musicians are out till 9 pm. The next Art in the Alley is January 10, 2020. Check out the sunset, some holiday lights and some art.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
