MOUNT DORA NEWS

Florida Highwaymen to show off artwork this weekend


Six of the Florida Highwaymen, a group of mostly self-taught African-American painters who sold their artwork from the back of cars or door-to-door in the 1950s through the 1980s, will have their 18th art show and sale this weekend in Mount Dora. The 26 Florida Highwaymen were inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2004.

Together, the group created over 200,000 works of art. Many priced at $25 to $50 originally are considered collectible and worth considerably more today. They painted on what they could, sometimes construction material such as Upson boards, sometimes art boards. Their vivid landscapes usually feature water, trees (often in the form of palms or the blooming poinciana) and colorful, clouded skies. Over time the group's focus waned, but they were re-discovered in the 1990s by Florida art collector and museum curator, Jim Fitch, who coined the name Florida Highwaymen. Read more...
