Opening Reception: Friday, January 14 | 5:30–7 p.m.           
Exhibition Dates: January 11–February 26
The season begins January 17 at Riverside Theatre with The Rt. Hon. Theresa May MP, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (2016-2019)

Theresa May served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party from 2016 to 2019, during an extraordinary time in global affairs. She is currently the Member of Parliament for Maidenhead — a position she’s held for over two decades.

Lisa Lugo to Show Multi-Media Works At Vero’s Center for Spiritual Care
Lisa Lugo will show paintings and ceramics at the Center for Spiritual Care Jan. 7-28. Her exhibition, entitled “Unity in Diversity,” will illustrate her deep understanding of a major Eastern aesthetic based on simplicity, humility and detachment. It will open with an artist’s reception Friday, Jan. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. 

The Center for Spiritual Care is located at 1550 24th St. in Vero Beach. Viewing is by appointment between 10 and 4 seven days a week. Call 772-567-1233. 

“For Lisa, whose most influential teacher studied with one of the greatest American potters of the 20th Century, Toshiko Takaezu, beauty is hidden beneath the surface of what we actually see,” says Center Director Carol Ludwig. “Her work is very straight-forward but has mystical overtones. It captures a kind of understated elegance imbued with serenity.” 
Lugo’s teacher, Jodi Kimmel, soon went on to enter a Zen monastery where she currently teaches the Zen way of ceramics. “I fell in love with Japanese simplicity and the concept of the impermanence of all things,” she says. At the same time, she was studying with another teacher who spent six years in India studying with a guru. “She brought a different set of ideas regarding spirituality,” Lisa says, “and those teachings also stayed with me.” 
The encounters led her to think about the different paths people take on their inner journeys. “I love the idea of unity in diversity and want to show the ways we are united more than not, including culturally. I believe there are many ways to have a spiritual experience: sometimes it comes in a dream and sometimes you feel it in nature.”

Plein Air at MSVB
The artists of Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast will be featured for the month of January at the Main Street Vero Beach Gallery at 2036 14th Ave in the Historic Downtown Arts District.
Show Coordinator Susan Miiller states “My paintings are infused with the energy of the oceans, rivers, estuaries, lagoons, mangrove swamps, wildlife, aquatic life, birds and beaches of Florida. I want to instill in the viewer, an understanding and appreciation of the natural world. I invite the viewer on a journey that combines real places with their imagination and memories.” Susan received an M.F.A. in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas, 1992 and a B.F.A in painting from SUNY New Paltz, 1988. Miiller, who has been faculty at SUNY since 1999 is the recipient of several awards, has exhibited her work in museums and galleries nationwide, and in is included in many important collections.
Judi LeBlanc is a British artist who studied fine art at Wimbledon College of Art, London, UK. She arrived on the Treasure Coast just last year and quickly found the Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast. Judi states: “I arrived in Florida just as Covid hit and fell in love with the Treasure Coast. The friendliness of people and the stunning landscape are a constant source of inspiration. Visit http://www.JudiLeblanc.com.
Lori McNamara was born in Ft. Pierce and still lives in her old home on Indian River Drive. She loves to paint the natural beauty of Florida and going to all the wonderful parks and beaches of Ft. Pierce. She is the leader of Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast and organizes their paint outs. They paint at local places of interest in and around Ft. Pierce.
Diane Mesagno was born and raised in New York and graduated from the New York Institute of Technology with a degree in architecture. Before starting her career in architecture, she studied sculpture in Austria. Since moving to Florida she devotes her time and energy to fine art painting in acrylics. Her recent work depicts the Florida landscapes and seascapes painted plein air.
Melbourne Chamber Music Society features the Escher String Quartet and pianist Roman Rabinovich in a concert of piano quintets by Dvorak and Brahms Friday, January 7, at 7:30 p.m. Due to continued concerns with the COVID virus, masks will continue to be required at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
Put This Calendar on Your Calendar!
The Vero Beach Theatre Guild is ringing in the New Year with 12 local ladies baring it all on stage in the hilarious yet moving dramedy Calendar Girls opening Wednesday, January 12. The inspiring true story based on the film by the same name depicts a group of middle-aged Yorkshire women who produced a nude calendar to raise funds for a memorial settee to be placed in their local cancer ward’s waiting room. Ever since 1999, the calendar has been a colossal success and to this day they’ve raised millions for leukemia and lymphoma research. 
Adapted for the stage by Tim Firth, the play has had multiple national tours in England, Canada, and Australia, in addition to the hundreds of community productions produced around the globe after its successful try out at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2008.
Local Director Art Pingree had a vision involving sparkling stained-glass cathedral windows, gorgeous gazebos, and lots of sunflowers facilitated by the Guild’s resident design director Jeff Hall with his volunteer scene shop crew of John Boerstler, Robert Klimeck, Gerry Quimbly, Bob Stevenson, Joe Jones, and Russ Sabac. Props created by Debbie Brandauer and Lisa McNamee cover the set, and the ladies. Stage Manager Sue Nalepa and Artistic Director Jon Putzke are supporting director Pingree with this mammoth production.
Calendar Girls takes place over the course of 16 scenes spanning two years, and the tremendous task of costuming fell to costume chairperson Patty Migliaccio with lead costumer coordinator Betty Morrow and team members Valeri Cooke, Mary Moriarty, Lucy Orihuel, and Kathleen Teay.

Calendar Girls runs through January 23 at Vero Beach Theatre Guild.

Rent at The Barn
The Barn Theatre presents the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical “RENT,” January 13 through January 30, with a live band. Considered the most celebrated musical and cultural touchstone of today, “RENT” propelled musical theatre into a new era.

Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Barn is the only theater in 2022 licensed in Florida to present it, and one of only eight theaters in the country. One of the longest-running shows on Broadway, “RENT” depicts young artists struggling to survive and create a life under the shadow of AIDS. From the words to the music, everything about the show drips with passion and emotion, including such iconic songs as Seasons of Love, Take Me or Leave Me, and LaVie Boheme.
Jonathan Larson, the creator of “RENT,” passed away from a heart condition just before the show opened in 1997. Coincidentally, The Barn's own Technical Director and the Director of “RENT,” Bryan Childe, suffers from the same congeital heart condition. Bryan underwent successful cutting edge heart surgery this past summer to correct the congenital defect. The same surgical procedure was not available in 1997. In honor of Bryan, the Barn is donating a portion of “RENT” proceeds to the Jonathan Larson Performing Arts Foundation.

Exciting Things Happening at the Elliott
In case you aren't on the Historical Society of Martin County's mailing list (you should be), here's the latest from President and CEO Rob Steele:

When you make your first visit to the Elliott Museum in 2022, you will certainly take note that we have 19 tons of submarine parked under the marquee! We are thrilled to host the Harbor Branch exhibit, “Celebrating 50 Years of Ocean Science for a Better World,” and you will be amazed at everything that has been and is being discovered in the waters that surround us. 

We are doubly fortunate to be able to present our singularly qualified docent, Craig Caddigan, who will most assuredly increase your enjoyment of the exhibit exponentially! In his career, Craig logged over 1,200 dives as pilot of the Johnson Sea Link I & II, advised and participated in numerous submersible and scientific diving operations throughout the world (Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, Mediterranean Sea, and Great Lakes) that ranged from multiple days to over four months in length. Recovery missions include the Space Shuttle Challenger, excavation and documentation of USS Monitor, and Trident missile recoveries.

Craig is on hand at the museum on most Thursdays and Fridays, and I can only offer my highest and most fervent endorsement for a docent-guided experience with him!
We believe that we have two exceedingly unique and dynamic museums under the umbrella of the Historical Society of Martin County. We have tried every possible advertising and promotional strategy we could think of and afford to get the word out about our two 'hidden secrets.'
Then Christmas came a little early for Steele in 2021:

I received an unexpected phone call from one of the producers of a Discovery Channel program called "Expedition Unknown" with Josh Gates. The production team was contemplating the possibility of producing a one-hour episode on the Ashley Gang. As fate would have it, we have been developing a new, permanent exhibit on the Notorious Ashley Gang at the Elliott Museum, and it is scheduled to open on January 20! In a matter of hours, the Discovery producers made the decision to film on location here at the Elliott Museum, and the team began arriving three days later.

Two weeks later, the "Expedition Unknown" team headed back to California with enough footage to create what we hope will be an epic episode on the Ashley Gang Story. The team visited a number of historically relevant sites, and several local actors were employed to create historical vignettes to help tell the story. The production team was continually awed and inspired by the depth, breadth, and complexity of the Ashley Gang story.

The episode will air during Season 10 of the "Expedition Unknown" series, and we will share the date as soon it becomes available. Needless to say, the exposure that the Ashley Gang story and the museum will receive will be substantial, and we can’t wait to greet thousands of new guests.
Steel Magnolias at A.C.T. Studio Theatre
A testament to women’s strength and resiliency is on full display in the tender-hearted favorite “Steel Magnolias” by Robert Harling at the A.C.T. Studio Theatre. The setting is Truvy’s Louisiana beauty salon where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Filled with hilarious repartee and humorously revealing verbal collisions, the ladies draw on their underlying strength—and love—to make them marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. The play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the women’s fortitude. 
This touching portrait and celebration of women’s strength will be on stage at A.C.T. weekends through January 23. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8:00 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 3:00 p.m.  
A.C.T. Studio Theatre is located in the Cedar Pointe Plaza, 2399 SE Ocean Blvd., Stuart. 

The cast (clockwise) are Colette Schweizer (Clairee), Hannah Greenlee (Annelle), Joyce Milligan (Ouiser), Megan Pollak (Truvy), Shauna Stone (Shelby), and Sherri Paradis (M'Lynn)

Il Divo Carries On at King Center
From the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne:

Following the tragic passing of Il Divo’s Carlos Marin (from complications from COVID), the remaining members of the multi-national group – America’s David Miller, France’s Sebastien Izambard and Switzerland’s Urs Buhler – will proceed with their tour in tribute to Marin. The tour, previously, the “For Once in My Life Tour” will go on as a Greatest Hits Tour and include special guest, Mexican American baritone Steven LaBrie.

All tickets from the originally scheduled dates will be honored at the 2022 shows. Tickets for the new date (Saturday, April 23, 2022 at 8pm) are available at KingCenter.com.

From a statement by Miller, Izambard and Buhle: “Carlos was a larger than life personality, with a rare combination of an incredibly beautiful, God-given voice and absolutely, immense talent. His passion, playfulness and sense of humor made for such a magical persona, and his laugh would always lift anyone up. He was loved by millions of fans all over the world and we were lucky and honored to be able to perform with him in our midst for so many years. We’ll deeply miss his playfulness, friendship and brilliant voice. In his honor, we’ll be setting up a Carlos Marin Foundation and will be playing tribute to his singing in our future shows. May everyone remember him for his beautiful soul, his amazing talent and may he forever rest in peace.”
Il Divo is the first of the Classical Crossover artists to have an album debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart.

The Frida Kahlo Diego Rivera & Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection exhibition is on view through February 6!
At Gallery 14

There will be a reception January 7 in conjunction with the First Friday Gallery Stroll from 5 to 8pm.
According to Derek Gores, curator of the event: “Focus will be on communicating beyond words, beyond intellect and in trusting the dream state.” 
DEREK GORES, returning to Gallery 14 for his fifth year, will dazzle with his upcycled beauties who wink at the past from the near future. 
CLIFFTON CHANDLER, where Dali meets Banksy in the wood shop, is an artist-designer with an architectural background whose sculptures use layers of planes and cutouts, paint and inlay, in a wide variety of materials and surface treatments. 
JOAN EARNHART, with her surreal combinations to entertain the psyche, is represented by Gallery 14 year round. Her spiritually enriching assemblages employ found objects and antiques in intriguing juxtaposition. 
MASLOW, with his light-speed visions of timeless nature,  has painted murals all over the world. He is most recognized for his multi-story public works and his fine art paintings that incorporate abstract, realism, graffiti, and ethereal surrealism. 
The Many Faces of Beethoven is the fundraising concert for Music Angels Education Fund originally scheduled for last November, now set for January 14 at First Presbyterian Church, Vero Beach.

Leslie Amper will present a multi media musical event that illuminates Beethoven's creative impulses at age 30 said Linda Sposato, Music Angels coordinator. "The performance will include portraits, discussion of his compositional process, and the powerful (and sometimes humorous) influence on current performers and film." The concert also features a complete performance of his Piano Sonata opus 31 #3.

 A winner of the National Endowment for the Arts Solo Recitalist grant, concert pianist, Leslie Amper has presented solo recitals, concertos and chamber music nationally. Her unique multi media performances related to the visual arts have been presented at the invitation of the National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Pittsburgh Frick, New York State Museum, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Phoenix Art Museum, Carnegie Mellon University and California State University East Bay among many others. 
If you weren't able to see the Christmas Celebration at First Presbyterian Church in person last week, here's the YouTube link to enjoy it now. And enjoyment doesn't begin to describe the feeling I and others I've talked to had while watching Jacob Craig conducting a huge collection of the best musicians the area has to offer: the First Presbyterian Chancel Choir in collaboration with singers from The Vero Beach Choral Society, Sebastian River High School Choirs, Vero Beach High School Choirs, Indian River Charter High School Choir, the First Pres Youth String Orchestra joined by the FPC Youth Winds and Percussion ensemble. Think goosebumps.

And if you haven't listened to the special holiday Arts Blast on the Air, pour a cup of something nice and kick back for 25 minutes. We have so much wonderful, generous local talent! And what fun it was to put it together.

🎨 As 2021 and the third year of Arts Blast come to a close, I hope to carve out time to get back to my own art studio. To make it work, I will be liquidating tools, supplies, and books for a variety of arts interests I've enjoyed over the years. I'm picking out a few favorites to keep but it's someone else's turn on others. A few categories: Lapidary equipment and tons of slabs and rough; lamp work; stained glass; gourds galore; metalwork; clay; enameling; wood carving; encaustics; painting; tons of books and magazines. Maybe not the enameling or wood carving. Or painting. 🤔 And I'll keep a few gourds.🙄 Oh, this is tough!
