I live in California and I had the same problem with painting out of my garage. The heat did not affect my oil paintings; however, the strong fumes from the chemicals can be pretty dangerous for you. As long as you keep your garage well ventillated they should be fine. I am not sure about your acrylic paintings though, hopefully someone else can advice you on them.
I'd like to network with you as well, as I have been painting as a hobby for over 9 years. I have now finally decided to display my artwork. I'd like any advice or ideas or maybe if you hear of an exhibit opportunity please keep me in mind! Thanks!
