Exploring the Vibrant Art Scene: Ocala's First Friday Art Walk. Step into the Creative Hub of Downtown Ocala and immerse yourself in a world of artistic wonders. I recently had the pleasure of participating in this captivating event last Friday, and it was a wonderful experience.
As I set up my booth adorned with my favorite photographs I have captured, a sense of excitement filled the air. My gallery showcased a mesmerizing collection of prints to purchase along with samples of my portrait photographs. The timeless beauty of nature was on display, inviting visitors to explore the world around them and fill their souls with its enchanting charm.
One cannot help but be awestruck by the divine qualities found in nature that are created by God. Through my lens, I sought to capture the essence of God's creation, revealing the soul-filling wonders that lie within. From majestic landscapes to splendid beach sunsets, each photograph told a unique story, inviting viewers to embark on their own spiritual journey.
The First Friday Art Walk provided the perfect platform for artists, art enthusiasts and small business owners to connect and celebrate the beauty that thrives in our community. It was a joyous occasion, bustling with people from all walks of life. Conversations flowed freely, as visitors stopped by my booth to admire the photographs and dive deep into discussions about their own interpretations of the images.
Sharing my passion for photography with others was a rewarding experience. It allowed me to delve into the stories behind each photograph and witness the emotional reactions they evoked in others, these conversations sparked a sense of connection and camaraderie.

I was blessed to be located at Ole Sarah’s, a new shop that has opened in the last month filled with gifts, apparel, refurbished furniture, home decor and so much more all from local Florida small businesses. Sharlene and Sheryl invited me to pray over the event and for all those that would be in attendance. Inspiring us to just not sell items, but to truly see the gift of each person that would cross our path.
