Osceola Center for the Arts

I just viewed the application process for the Osceola Center for the Arts and Center Art Associates. I like the fact that they jury in artists. Their mission is to "raise the Center's cultural profile". Well said! Once accepted, the CAA acts as a conduit for the visual artist, serving as a promoter for the visual artists. Your $35.00 annual membership fee gets you into their database, and a venue for your work will be found as soon as possible. Your name will be included in their email list for all ‘call for artists’ and general information about the local art scene. I say that's money well spent.

Coming to a close

My exhibits at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, and the Fine Art Gallery at Seminole State College in Sanford come to a close this week. I have been invited to adorn the walls of the Raymond James office in Stuart. It's good to see a local business supporting local artists. The Arts Council of Martin County, and its Board of Directors just doesn't get it. If you don't advocate for the artists, what becomes of them?
