McRae Art Studios has a 31 year history in Central Florida. Located in Orlando, it is a collective of 23 artists who maintain individual businesses in art, yet work as a group. Originally started in 1987 on McRae St in Orlando, founders George and Marty Whipple envisioned an affordable place for independent artists to work and mingle, while focusing community attention to the outstanding talent in the area. It was located at 904 Railroad Avenue for 18 years. It moved to its current Orlando address since 2017.
McRae strives to maintain the highest level of artistic accomplishment by bringing artists into the collective by a jury process. Through the years it has been home to numerous nationally recognized artists. The group dynamic brings many advantages to the individual artists including our 9000 square foot workspace, our website, and many opportunities to promote and produce group shows.
We open our studios to the public four times a year, attracting as many as 2000 people in attendance. As a collective, McRae has produced shows with Brevard Museum of Art, Orlando Museum of Art (First Thursday Show), Casselberry City Hall (Artists Program), Maitland Art Center, and Winter Park Public Library, and more. We are always open to new venues for group showings. McRae Art Studios is a front door to the careers and businesses of a diverse group of talented artists. Our true light shines from the work each of us creates. We encourage you to contact us individ
