visual fringe

Visual Fringe is a subset of the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival that features drawing, painting, sculpture, design, jewelry making, and more.

Like the theater portion of the festival, Visual Fringe is uncensored and unjuried and 100% of the money made in art sales is given back to the artists. The main focus of the Visual Fringe is to allow an outlet for artists to push beyond their usual medium, subject matter, and comfort zone to bring true uniqueness to this exhibition and foster the celebration of creativity.

Our ever-evolving Visual Fringe Gallery has grown due to the amazing artists who showcase their work, a dedicated Visual Fringe team, and fabulous support of the Orlando Fringe Staff. 

Like the Fringe theater component, Visual Fringe is entirely unjuried and uncensored, so everyone is welcome to enter their work. Artists receive 100% of the profits from all sales.

Anything you see hanging on the walls or on pedestals throughout the festival grounds – be it paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics, or sculptures – is part of Visual Fringe and it is for sale!

(Remember, 100% of the money made goes back to the artists.)
