Waterworld

Waterworld

Greg Hills, Australian-born photographer and now a resident of our area, visited the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea this past winter – something he’s wanted to do for years.

Wounded Warrior

Wounded Warrior

“It’s a slow-motion event, at least in your mind, when you go through something like this,” says Gadson. “I remember being ejected, hitting the ground and coming to a rolling stop. Then it was back to real motion and I was like, ‘I don’t know why I’m on my back and I can’t move.’ And then I just said, ‘God, I don’t want to die in this country.’”

Investing In The Future

Investing In The Future

Susanne and Doug Sweeny, Bill Hamlin and Charlene Friedman were strangers when they moved to Grand Harbor. That changed once they became involved with Grand Harbor Community Outreach Program, working together on fundraising events and eventually joining the board of directors.

Pieces of History

Pieces of History

From just a few feet away, Russ Hahn’s “Dutch Treat” looks like a painting of a windmill. But up close you can see words among the wood. “NEDERLAND” peeks out of the mill’s walls, and “AMSTERDAM” is a clear, white curve on an orange roof. You blink, and then you notice letters on indistinct houses and numbers in the reeds. As your eyes adjust, you realize this is no ordinary painting. In fact, it’s not a painting at all. It’s a collage of thousands of pieces of postage stamps.

Honoring The Past

Honoring The Past

Next season the Vero Beach Theatre Guild will perform “The Claypools of Vero,” Suzan’s play inspired by a chapter in her aunt Dorothy Fitch Penniston’s novel An Island in Time. The play follows Dorothy’s life in the 1920s when she came to Vero Beach with her parents. Dorothy’s parents and Suzan’s grandparents, Winchester and Florence Fitch, built “Orchid Oaks,” one of the first seven houses on the barrier island, and were among the founders of Riomar in 1919.

The Art Of Cherishing Children

The Art Of Cherishing Children

When you enter the galleries of the Vero Beach Museum of Art, you are just as likely to encounter a youngster sitting on a beanbag chair making art on an iPad as to see an equally absorbed adult studying a priceless painting. And you are just as likely to see a docent leading a tour of young mothers with tots in strollers as you are to see that docent conducting a tour for residents of a retirement community. While the docent may talk to the latter group about the exhibition in one way, she will engage the mothers in another way, emphasizing to them how to talk to their children about art.

A Place Where Food And Philanthophy Meet

A Place Where Food And Philanthophy Meet

Chelsea’s on Cardinal, a gourmet food market and deli located on Cardinal Drive, is the Bordoli family’s latest acquisition, purchased in the summer of 2015 from former owner David Busch. The first classic market to offer gourmet fare in Vero Beach, Chelsea’s was originally the brainchild of local restaurateur John Marx.
