It’s that time of year when local artists are planning an evening of art work, from t-shirts and ball caps t0 aprons and tote bags, all to support Helping People Succeed and its popular White Shirt Night, benefiting Camp Success, an eight-week summer learning program for at-risk children.

On hand for the evening will be 10 artists showing their art work in scenes from riverscapes and backwoods scenes to pelicans and turtles – there will be something for everyone! Each artist will design and present three or four scenes for guests to select for painting. There will also be a silent auction and entertainment.

The annual White Shirt Night is planned for Saturday, June 23 at Taste Casual Dining in Hobe Sound. The restaurant is owned by Craig and Karen Kingston, who have hosted the White Shirt Night for more than 10 years. The event is located at 11750 SE Dixie Hwy.

Tickets for general admission between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. are $50 per person and include a drink, hors d’oeuvres and a t-shirt. A special Meet and Greet with the artists, $100.00 per person, between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. will include two drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a selection of one of the White Shirt items to be “painted” by an artist. Guests may RSVP at 772.320.0778 to Glenna Parris at Helping People Succeed or online at www.hpsfl.org. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Annual Martin County Arts Fest

Out2News.com

Stuart — The Arts Council presented the Annual ArtsFest, one of the most beloved and prestigious art shows on the Treasure Coast. More than 160 talented artists from across the country lined East Ocean Boulevard in downtown Stuart on Saturday and Sunday to celebrate a weekend filled with fine arts and interactive entertainment.

The Arts Council of Martin County has been a leader in the arts, since 1980! The arts and cultural programs we support inspire creativity, learning and strengthen the fabric of our community. ArtsFest is both our biggest celebration of the arts and our largest fundraiser put on each year to provide opportunity for people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds to discover and embrace the arts!

Stuart Painter, Chris Kling, was selected as the featured artist for ArtsFest 2017. Ms. Kling has participated in and received many awards throughout her artistic career; with many of her paintings in private and corporate collections throughout the United States. Ms. Kling has created three unique pieces for ArtsFest to be featured on posters, t-shirts and more!

The Literary Village was back again with a new sequel! You could grab a coffee at Stuart Coffee’s pop-up coffee shop and meet and greet local independent authors of genres! Participants from our Second ArtsFest Literary Competition will be reading their poems and short stories along with some featured performances by local Singer/Songwriters both Saturday and Sunday!

The wildly successful Stuart Chopped competition returned for its third year! Much like the popular TV Show, local chef’s will compete on stage and prepare a gourmet meal from a mystery box of ingredients. This year’s competition took place over the course of two days in our new CHOPPED Arena with the preliminary round being held on Saturday and Sunday.

Nestor Torres graced the ArtsFest stage in 1993, and the organizers were excited for his return for our the 30th Anniversary celebration in partnership with the Lyric Theatre and Wilmington Trust!

Finally for this years festival was the appearance of The Tibetan Monk’s Conflict Resolution Mandala. Millions of grains of sand was painstakingly laid into place on a flat platform beginning Wednesday February 8 as the monks of The Mystical Arts of Tibet created a sand mandala at the Court House Cultural Center Gallery.

Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning sacred cosmogram. In Tibetan, the art is called dul-tson-kyil-khor, which literally means “mandala of colored powders”. Formed of traditional prescribed iconography that includes geometric shapes and a multitude of ancient spiritual symbols, the sand-painted mandala is used as a tool for re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants. Of all the artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism, that of painting with colored sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite.

The culmination (closing ceremony) took place on Sunday, during the last day of ArtsFest when the monks dismantled the mandala, of which was poured into the St Lucie River.

Millions of grains of sand was painstakingly laid into place on a flat platform beginning Wednesday February 8 as the monks of The Mystical Arts of Tibet created a sand mandala at the Court House Cultural Center Gallery.

Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning sacred cosmogram. In Tibetan, the art is called dul-tson-kyil-khor, which literally means “mandala of colored powders”. Formed of traditional prescribed iconography that includes geometric shapes and a multitude of ancient spiritual symbols, the sand-painted mandala is used as a tool for re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants. Of all the artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism, that of painting with colored sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite.

The culmination (closing ceremony) took place on Sunday, during the last day of ArtsFest when the monks dismantled the mandala, of which was poured into the St Lucie River.

Visionary School of Arts Supports “Save Our River”

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2012/08/16-July-Visionary.png

By: Lynne Barletta

Stuart — Visionary School of Arts sent our student body with their parents out to Caulkins Water Farm in Fall in to photograph and paint the wildlife and farm in order to promote the water farm concept of draining Lake Okeechobee into the farm land with filtration through sand, then send it back into the river clean. Their grant had been denied and we did a calendar of juried student work in order to get the word out and help Caulkins Water Farm to get their grant. The second grant was recently given to them and I just received the email below from Joe Catrambone President of Stuart Martin County Chamber of Commerce.

VSOA believes that art can be used as a vehicle to raise funds, promote ideas and send forth a powerful message of hope that crosses cultural, racial, political and language boundaries. We believe we had a small part of getting the visual word out for Caulkins Water Farm and we want to thank oursponsors once again for their help!

We will continue to send the “Save Our River” message this year and we are working on mural projects and more in downtown Stuart.

“SUBJECTIVE REALISM” BY ARTIST ERAN FAR

Out2News.com

On February 10th Palm City Art Associates (PCAA) will welcome New York artist Eran Far to demonstrate her creative art style. The public is invited to attend the regular monthly meetings held on the second Wednesday thru May, at 1:00 P.M., free of charge. Meetings are at the Cummings Library at 2551 SW Matheson Ave. in Palm City, in the Donohue Room. Each month PCAA features excellent and inspiring programs featuring a variety of talented artists who demonstrate their expertise and share tips, techniques and perspectives.

February’s renown guest artist, Eran Far, studied at the prestigious Art Students League of New York, a renown institution for over 130 years. Coming from a background of singing, theater, and dance in her younger years in New York, Eran studied under masters such as the late Joseph Stapleton, Anita Steckel, and the contemporary Dale Myer. Her style of painting was recognized as “Subjective Realism” within the abstract expressionist style. Eran has shown her art in New York, Berlin, Paris, Teheran, and Nice. Now her desire is to share her art with residents of the Treasure Coast, as well as “share her secrets” thru her upcoming classes. Currently Eran is offering art classes at the Artists’ Nook in Stuart, working as a private art instructor, conducting art workshops, and participating in art shows in different venues in Florida. To learn more about this artist, visit her website at: www.yessy.com/eranfar.

Coming up in the next few months are demonstrations by Chris Kling titled “Studio Painting versus Plein Air,” and Judy Mercer presenting “Brightly Colored Foliage in Watercolor.” For further information about Palm City Art Association, its activities, and membership, visit the website www.palmcityartassociates.com.

3 County Study “Arts and Economic Impact”

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2013/01/16-Jan-Arts-and-Economics-logo.png

Treasure Coast — The Cultural Council of Indian River County, the Arts Council of Martin County and Art Mundo of St. Lucie County Join Americans for the Arts’ National Study of the Economic Impact of Spending by Nonprofit Arts and Cultural Organizations and Their Audiences

In Indian River, Martin, and St. Lucie Counties, The Arts Mean Business. That is the message being delivered today by the Cultural Council of Indian River County, Arts Council of Martin County and Arts Mundo of St. Lucie County, who announced they have joined Arts & Economic Prosperity 5, a national study measuring the economic impact of nonprofit arts and cultural organizations and their audiences.

The research study is being conducted by Americans for the Arts, the nation’s nonprofit organization advancing the arts and arts education. It is the fifth study over the past 20 years to measure the impact of arts spending on local jobs, income paid to local residents, and revenue generated to local and state governments.

As three of nearly 300 study partners across all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, the three Treasure Coast Arts Organizations will collect their county’s detailed financial data about their local nonprofit arts and culture organizations such as theater and dance companies, museums and galleries, concerts, opera and orchestras, lectures, literary, and arts education organizations.

“Many people don’t think of nonprofit arts organizations as businesses,” said Keith Kite, Managing Partner, Kite Properties LLC, “but this study will make clear that the arts are a formidable industry in our community—employing people locally, purchasing goods and services from local merchants, and helping to drive tourism and economic development.”

The Cultural Council, Arts Council and Art Mundo will also collect surveys from attendees at arts events using a short, anonymous questionnaire that asks how much money they spent on items such as meals, parking and transportation, and retail shopping specifically as a result of attending the event. Previous studies have shown that the average attendee spends $24.60 per person, per event, beyond the cost of admission. Those studies have also shown that on average, 32 percent of arts attendees travel from outside the county in which the arts event took place, and that those cultural tourists typically spend nearly $40 per person—generating important revenue for local businesses and demonstrating how the arts drive revenue for other businesses in the community.

The Treasure Coast Art Councils believe that “This study will show that when we support the arts in our communities we are making an investment in an industry, one that supports jobs and generates government revenue, and is the cornerstone of tourism.”

According to Americans for the Arts’ most recent national study, the nonprofit arts industry generated $135.2 billion in total economic activity and supported 4.1 million full-time equivalent jobs during 2010, resulting in $22.3 billion in federal, state, and local government revenues. The $135.2 billion total included $61.1 billion in spending by arts organizations and $74.1 billion in event-related spending by their audiences on items such as meals, local transportation and overnight lodging. Complete details about the fiscal year 2010 study are available at www.AmericansForTheArts.org/economicImpact.

“Our Arts & Economic Prosperity series demonstrates that the arts are an economic and employment powerhouse both locally and across the nation,” said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “Leaders who care about community and economic vitality can feel good about choosing to invest in the arts. Nationally as well as locally, the arts mean business.”

Americans for the Arts’ Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study is supported by the Ruth Lilly Fund of Americans for the Arts. In addition, Americans for the arts’ local and statewide study partners are contributing both time and a cost-sharing fee support to the study. For a full list of the nearly 300 Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study partners, visit www.AmericansForTheArts.org/AEP5Partners.
