International Artist,

Opens Art Gallery
in Mount Dora

... from Christina Padgett

International sculptor, painter, writer and actor, Lawrence Holofcener, has chosen to open his studio gallery in Mount Dora, which has had a long reputation as a mecca for art and antiques.

He and his wife, Julia, have lived in Europe for the past 15 years, where Mr. Holofcener produced many life-size monuments. Among them are Allies - Churchill and Roosevelt - in London; Thomas Chatterton, William Penn and William Tyndale in Bristol, England; Faces of Olivier at the Chichester Theatre, UK, and Thomas Paine in Bordentown, NJ.

While living in the south of France, he was given two prestigious exhibitions of his sculptures and paintings, which led to a documentary on his professional career, to be released next year.

Mr. Holofcener’s varied career began in New York where he wrote for the fabled Show of Shows, on NBC-TV, starring Sid Caesar.

He collaborated on several Broadway musicals and plays, among them Mr. Wonderful, introducing the great talents of Sammy Davis, Jr. to the world. Mr. Holofcener later starred on Broadway with Carol Channing in Hello Dolly, and in the lead role in Stop the World, I Want to Get Off.

His latest musical, I Don’t Live There Anymore, (, was featured at the ’93 Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC, and later toured the state in 2000.

Mr. Holofcener invites the public to visit
his Studio and Gallery at:

133 5th Avenue

10-12 and 2-5 Thursday through Saturday,
and 1-5 on Sunday.

life-size portrait of John Lennon from his series Icons of the 20th Century.
