28th Annual All Florida Juried Arts Show

There's only one week left to see the All Florida Juried Arts Show. 
The show ends on November 15th and features works by artists from all over Florida. 

I did not enter a piece for this show but was still excited to see what works were selected. The exhibit takes up both rooms at the Court House Cultural Center.

There was a nice mix of work spanning traditional and experimental media. 

From my observation of the other patrons, they were most intrigued by the hand-embroidered textiles and sculptures made from materials like soap or palm pods.

Flame Pods by Gary Gresko (shown above right) definitely caught everyone's eye.

Joachim Perez's, Touchy, Smelly had visitors resisting the urge to actually touch the sculptures made from soap and digital fabrication but we did try to smell them. 

Robin Stabley's, Florida - Land Ho! had impressive gold leafing and painted faux marble. I had to stare at this painting a long time to take in all of the intricate little details.

I enjoyed this show very much and hope you get a chance to see it as well.

The Court House Cultural Center is located at 80 SE Ocean Blvd, Stuart, Florida.
Gallery hours are Tues-Fri 10 am - 4pm and Sat 11am - 2pm.
Suggested donation of $5.00

A very Sweet art show at the Elliott Museum

The last day of the Sweet! art exhibit was this past Sunday so if you missed it then you really missed out. 

Located at the Elliott Museum in the changing exhibitions gallery, Sweet! was a food and drink themed juried art exhibition featuring artists from all over the state of Florida.

We were asked not to take pictures of the artwork so I respectfully complied but here is a shot of the crowd viewing the exhibit on opening night. The turnout was fantastic and everyone really seemed to enjoy the food and the art!

Moo! by Kim W. Nolan
I was, however, allowed to take pictures of my own work. This is a sculpture of a cow I made from upcycled dairy containers...

...and I used milk crates for the pedestal.

These are actual cakes made by a local baker, The Cake Lady, located in Fort Pierce. Free samples were generously given to patrons. There was also lots of other cakes and edible goodies donated by the sponsor of the show, Publix Super Markets.

The Elliott Museum did a wonderful job of putting together this fabulous art show. This exhibit is now over but the permanent exhibits are absolutely worth exploring. They have a huge collection of vintage cars as well as several other galleries that have displays ranging from vintage baseball cards to old voting booths.
