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.
