The land has a large, lily-covered pond, with a fishing pier, and many old-growth, live oaks, spread out over multiple pastures with walking paths.

Featured Exhibit Artist, Lynne Polley


Lynne Polley has called Florida her home for over thirty years. An award winning graphic designer in the fields of advertising and publishing, Lynne’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous exhibitions across the country.

Lynne’s many years of working in the field of graphic arts and her experience as an oil painter, have both contributed to her love of design, color, and composition. Drawn to the beauty one can only find outdoors, she continues to respond to nature and has studied with some of the nations best contemporary plein air artists.

Lynne says, “I find that I am driven to consistently explore all directions of creating art to achieve my personal best. I love to experiment and find the camaraderie that my painting community offers to be such a wonderful support. I have been studying plein air for the past seven years and I’m drawn to light and shape of hidden, out-of-the-way places.” Lynne currently has a studio located in College Park, Florida.
