Come on out to the last Art Stroll until it returns in the Fall on June 5th from 6-9pm. The art galleries and shops of Ivanhoe Village open their doors to a variety of local artists working, showcasing and selling their creations. Many of the merchants will be open late for this fun event, so you can stroll along Orange Ave. between New Hampshire and Prinston Ave., while enjoying drinks, food, live music and of course great art.I will have my art displayed at Oldies but Goodies, 1907 N. Orange Ave., Orlando FL 32804. You can guess by the name of the store that you can find something from the past. This wonderful antique store is owned by Barb; who will be happy to help you find that something you have always wanted.
And I will have original art, green art, wearable art and a variety of prints.
The Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival starts May 14th and ends on 25th, during the 12 days of theatre, music, comedy, drama, juggling, improve, etc… you will find an eclectic array of Visual ART! I will be posting more YouTube videos on Fringe, meanwhile here is a sneak peak at my art that is in this years Visual Fringe.
The Fringe is 100% sales goes to the artist, no matter what type of artist you are… performance or visual. This years Fringe Festival is going GREEN and along with that, you will find many art creations have gone GREEN too. Originally when I created my art, I wasn’t even thinking GREEN, I was just thinking how can I use dead DVD’s and CD’s. Throwing them out wasn’t the option, so I gave them new life.
This one is called “Recycled Trees” materials used on the disks were muslin and textile puff paint.
This one is called “A Great Change” materials used on the disks were muslin, acrylics, crackling varnishes and oil paints.
Florida... there is a new Artist magazine on the stands. FREE to everyone. A magazine geared to promote local artist’s. On May 1, 2009 at Shan Chinese Restaurant & Shushi was the location for the launch. The walls were filled with the art of Wilson Romero who is the magazine’s artist of the month.
A big congratulations to Publisher and Editor Director Edemuel Mora for his vision. The evening brought out some of the other artists who’s work also graced the pages. Abdul Delgado, I recently met at the Hispanic Expo and Donna Rupe came out for the festivities. The magazine has a calendar open to anyone who gets their art event info to the magazine one month prior. I want to thank Edemuel for putting in my May 3rd event. And if you would like to advertise or maybe featured contact Victor Daza at 407-529-6322 or 321-948-8310. The website is still growing and info on a fantastic new competition can be found there along with being in the hardcopy of the magazine. Check out nafaf.com.
I am a bit behind on posting where I have been and what I am up too…. Then again it’s never too late to talk about past shows and on-going shows.Last weekend (Apr. 24, 2009) I got a chance to stop by a show at a friends bar called Little Fish Huge Pond. It’s a fun spot with a very funky interior. Along with some of the unusual wall hangings, there is lots of art everywhere. That includes the bathrooms. I even have a few pieces of art for sale and when I stopped by, it was nice when Moire handed me some money for art sold.
(The art in black mat is one of mine)
