OAKLAND, FL – The Town of Oakland is featuring breathtaking digital paintings by Craig K. Brown and sketches from Rod Reeves as part of a new exhibition called “Oakland Historical Homes & Buildings.” Plus, wood art pieces by photographer Scott Lineberger, a local Oakland artist with a long-time career in video productions, will be on display. 

 

“Oakland Historical Homes & Buildings” will allow visitors to learn about the historical buildings and homes located in the Oakland area, all while catching a glimpse of well-known local art pieces featuring these gorgeous locations. Visitors will also see historical 1924 deeds from two of the homes and registry books from the Oakland Hotel. Visitors can see the exhibition on display from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Fridays starting Friday, July 2 and running until the end of August. 

 

Craig K. Brown, a West Orange County resident and professional photographer, photographs popular area landmarks and landscapes and then digitally manipulates them until they are transformed into vibrant, striking works of art that resemble perfectly rendered watercolor paintings. 

 

Rod Reeves, an accomplished artist and draftsman, documented much of the West Orange County region and collected an assortment of books, clippings, interviews and his drawings throughout his life. During his tenure as the inaugural Director of the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation, the collection grew into an important resource. And, his detailed drawings of people, places, and things serve as an indelible legacy of everyday living over the past 60 years.


Scott Lineberger has created commercial and documentary video productions on both a regional and national scale, including an independent made-for-TV movie. He's a Florida native and eight years ago he returned home to assist his grandmother, longtime Oakland resident Mildred Arrington. Lineberger also took this opportunity to return to his photographic roots. He now produces images and videos including drone photography for real estate agents across Central Florida and utilizes his free time to capture images.
