Supporting The Arts & Arts Councils Everywhere

Volume 6 No. 6 | February 9, 2024

Notes from the Editor:

From time to time, I take a step back and look in wonder at the arts community here and how lucky we are to have the number and caliber of volunteers who make it all possible. I consider Gardenfest an arts-related event, and if you were at Riverside Park last weekend, you saw a top-notch group of volunteers in action. Many thousands of visitors enjoyed one of the best garden shows in the state, all put together by a relatively small group of unpaid volunteers, members of the Garden Club of Indian River County. Congratulations and thank you to all!

In a few weeks in the same location, a different band of equally dedicated volunteers, members of the Vero Beach Art Club, will welcome tens of thousands of visitors to the 73rd annual juried Under the Oaks Fine Arts & Craft Show. UTO is on more than one list of the top 200 art shows in the US. In three of the past four years, the show was voted in the top 17 in the Best Fine Arts & Design Shows in the COUNTRY by Sunshine Artist. The fourth year, 2020, COVID forced the Art club to shut down before the end of the first day.

Name any arts organization and you've more than likely found a place for your volunteer services. Look up the website and raise your hand.

This Arts Blast offers news of plenty of things to do but there are far more that we can't fit in. Make the Arts Blast calendar at shut a frequent stop.



If you're responsible for promoting an arts-related event, send in details using the format at the end of this email. There's no charge for basic calendar listings but your advertising flyer that includes a link to your website will do more to catch readers' attention. Email for advertising information in Arts Blast and Arts Blast on the Air.

Please support small, local businesses. Arts Blast is one of them, so if you have an event coming up, or something artsy to sell or teach, consider advertising it in Arts Blast and/or Arts Blast on the Air!

The Jersey Tenors

@ The Lyric

 February 14, 7p.m.


The Jersey Tenors bring the music from Frank Sinatra to Frankie Valli to Figaro. The four talented guys, complete with Broadway and operatic credits, are Jersey born and bred and Jersey proud.

The Jersey Tenors seamlessly perform some of opera’s greatest works alongside the best of Josh Groban, ABBA, Queen, Journey, Elton John, Kool and the Gang, and of course, the best that Jersey has to offer, from Sinatra and Valli to Bon Jovi and Springsteen and Jersey girl Whitney Houston. Backed by a six-piece band, the boys bring a vast musical repertoire together in one night of song that honors the sound of “Joisey” and beyond.

Jefferson Starship

February 15 , 7p.m.

Descended from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and 2016 GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients Jefferson Airplane, the members of Jefferson Starship past and present have been exploring the mysteries of music for more than 1000 collective years! The legend of Jefferson Starship begins in 1970 when Paul Kantner released an album entitled “Blows Against the Empire.” They first toured as Jefferson Starship in 1974 and released the album “Dragonfly” which was certified gold. 


Jefferson Starship is one of the most successful rock groups of the 1970’s and 80’s, earning 3 platinum and 8 gold records as well as numerous Top 40 singles. While Jefferson Starship continues to tour today the band has experienced numerous lineup and personnel changes and each of those members have contributed to the magic and alchemy that make Jefferson Starship iconic. Founding member David Freiberg continues to lead the band in its present day incarnation and was also a member of Jefferson Airplane and wrote one of the Jefferson Starship’s greatest hits, “Jane.” Other tremendous hits include “Ride The Tiger,” “Sarah,” “With Your Love,” “Count on Me,” “Winds of Change,” Find Your Way Back,” “Miracles” and “Runaway.”

Deborah Pollock will present “Hermann Herzog: Florida's Most Important Landscape Painter,” at the The Palm Beach Show (Jewelry, Art. Antiques, and Design), Palm Beach Convention Center, West Palm Beach Sunday, February 18, at 1 p.m. It’s free!

  Prolific and poetic artist Hermann Herzog (1832–1932) first came to Florida by 1893 and fell so much in love with its lush splendor that he returned practically every winter, painting over 300 oils of its virgin terrain until around 1912. Comparisons will be made with Winslow Homer, George Inness, and Martin Johnson Heade, who were in Florida at the same time. Come see the colorful Florida wilderness that Herzog depicted so beautifully. A limited edition book signing follows. Herzog painted in Palm Beach! Photo of Herzog and his work is from the back cover of "Hermann Herzog: His Remarkable Life, Unrivaled Florida Work, and Rightful Place in American Art History," by Edward Pollack and Deborah C.
