Adler’s Alchemy

The sold-out event, which benefitted educational programs and attracted new members, was such a success that a second “Fashion Meets Art” is scheduled to take place Feb. 27, with well-known American potter, designer and author Jonathan Adler taking center stage.

Art That Belongs In Another Realm

After living and working in cities here and abroad, artist Enrique Maza has found the setting and inspiration he has been looking for in a house in Palm Bay that he bought the first day a “for sale” sign was posted. Even though that was six months ago, many of his personal belongings remain packed in boxes since painting in his sun-splashed studio is Maza’s top priority.

The Art Of Teaching Art

The Museum Art School at the Vero Beach Museum of Art is one of the largest, museum-based, continuing education programs in the state. Serving some 1,800 students each year, the program invites a growing number of residents to discover the depth and breadth of its curriculum and have fun doing it.

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

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.
