Waterworld

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.

Take The Plunge Into Poetry

Take The Plunge Into Poetry

Charlotte Terry remembers feeling some trepidation at the Laura (Riding) Jackson (LRJ) Foundation’s first Poetry & Barbeque in April 2010. “I worried nobody would come. So I was truly surprised when over 100 people arrived wanting to hear poetry,” says Terry, who still marvels at the full house – or tent in this case.

Paul Pickel, who runs the studio, is a second-generation stained-glass craftsman, but the techniques he uses date back more than a thousand years.

A Passion For Paint: Tales From The Trenches

A Passion For Paint: Tales From The Trenches

As one of the country’s best small “art towns,” Vero Beach is brimming with smart, creative and energetic people. Artsy types have been flocking here since the turn of the 20th century, though some didn’t fully blossom until after their arrival. Spending time in our quaint seaside municipality seems to feed the imagination as much as bigger and better known cultural meccas like New York City and Santa Fe

Wiggens and Other Wonders

Wiggens and Other Wonders

It’s a good thing Leslie McGuirk refused to believe it when people kept telling her she didn’t have a creative bone in her body. Something inside told her that one day she would prove them wrong. She did, and in a big way.

Winners in Focus, Far and Wide

Winners in Focus, Far and Wide

Vero Beach is home to many talented residents, and never is it more evident than at this time of year when the results are announced for the Indian River Photo Club’s annual juried competition.

Portrait of the Artist as a Family Man

Portrait of the Artist as a Family Man

“For me a strong work of art is the result of a powerful experience. I am attracted to everyday sensations and find myself responsive towards the subtle beauty of things, the hours when there is tranquility of light, the rhythms of nature,” says painter Luke Steadman.

A Symphony of Shapes

A Symphony of Shapes

In a brilliant blend of circles, dots and lines – straight, curved or quirky – Beatriz Milhazes’ favorite colors leap to life, forming the spirited patterns that captivate her viewers.

Celebrating Silver At The Museum Of Art

Celebrating Silver At The Museum Of Art

A silver anniversary is cause for celebration and that’s just what has been happening at the Vero Beach Museum of Art since the beginning of the year.

Charles Caito In Black And White

Charles Caito In Black And White

“It’s a race against time,” Charles Caito says. “You struggle to find film – they keep threatening to discontinue silver film and they’ve discontinued my favorite paper.

A Bevy Of Silent Beauties

A Bevy Of Silent Beauties

George Paxton is someone who looks before he leaps but, once committed, will pursue the course without flagging. His current goal is to create figural sculptures that resonate with the passion of his heroes: Michelangelo, Bernini, Rodin.

Nancy Blair's Glass Menagerie

Nancy Blair's Glass Menagerie

Nancy Blair is a woman with a history – a herstory, that is. A frank feminist, the 50-something is a sculptor in ceramics, glass and mixed media; an author with five published books to her credit; an educator who teaches ceramics at the Vero Beach Museum of Art and hot-cast glass at Pilchuck Glass School in Washington state; a scholar whose specialty is the goddess-centered religions of pre-history and a business owner who started and operated both a successful restaurant and an art reproduction company.

From The Canvas To The Vase

From The Canvas To The Vase

They make it seem so easy – the “they” being Lee LaPointe and Ann Webber, who can look at a work of art and begin to envision one or more floral arrangements with similar colors, line and form.

Ron Van Sweringen: The Father Of Astroism

Ron Van Sweringen: The Father Of Astroism

“I don’t understand this. I can’t tell you what this is,” Ron Van Sweringen is saying about his abstract paintings. He pronounces his words with the soft vowels of a Southern aristocrat, the emphasis of an old-time revivalist and the rapid delivery of a man with no time to spare. The work in question is a composition of tangled strands and splotches of color that seems to float in the inky blackness of outer space.

Art With an Italian Accent

Art With an Italian Accent

Italian-born Ivo David is an artist for whom the mantle of “maestro” is neither heavy nor constrictive; indeed, the term clings to him as gracefully as a hand-tailored Armani suit. And why shouldn’t it? The term was made to order for Ivo, paid by him over a lifetime of experience with the cold, hard currency of work.

Big Dreams and Little Teapots

Big Dreams and Little Teapots

Potter and graphic designer Sean Clinton is reticent to talk about himself. He’s not shy, exactly; the tall, 44 year old exudes a boyish enthusiasm when talking about art and life.

Paintings From A Life

Paintings From A Life
