Support “Kelsey Cares” In Fostering The Arts As “The 4 Year Anniversary Block Party” In Lake Park Kicks Off

When AJ Brockman opened the Brewhouse Gallery, in 2014, it was easy to understand his concept – show original artwork from local artists and serve beer. But is was SO much more than that!  This visionary saw it as a “brew house for ideas” as well as craft beers and artwork…a common gathering place for an entire community!  As we head into the fourth phase of our grassroots effort, “The Back Alley Mural Project”, we ask our friends, family and business cohorts to help make it a success.  The Rickie Report shares the details of the next phase and the continuing efforts of AJ and his not-for-profit, Kelsey Cares.  We look to fellow visual artists, performing artists, and their audiences to get involved! The Rickie Report is proud to be part of this effort!

 

 

 

THE  4 YEAR  ANNIVERSARY  BLOCK  PARTY

SATURDAY,  May 12, 2018

(DETAILS  TO FOLLOW)

 

This video link will tell you more about the whole story and the continuing efforts of AJ and his not-for-profit, Kelsey Cares:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/leaving-our-mark-in-lake-park-a-mural-project-4-community#/

 

 

Revitalizing a community through a huge ( 900 foot) outdoor mural (one of the largest continuous murals in South Florida!) and launching The Lake Park Arts District!

OUR MISSION

“Funding art, theater, music, film, and cultural development through community outreach by providing subsidies for productions, events, artists and musicians to carry out their mission.”

 

 

 

Introducing Kelsey Cares. After multiple community projects to revitalize the Town of Lake Park through the arts, specifically our renowned mural projects, we are now furthering our efforts through receiving our 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Founded in 1919, the original Kelsey City (now Lake Park) was a cultural hub and we are continuing Harry Kelsey’s vision by cultivating The Lake Park Arts District. Kelsey Cares is Funding art, theater, music, film, and cultural development through community outreach by providing subsidies for productions, events, artists and musicians to carry out their mission.

 

 

The Back Alley Mural Project

Thanks to the local community the launch of The Kelsey Theater has been a growing success, and even given birth to what we now call The Lake Park Arts District. That left us wondering, “What else can we do to make Lake Park great?” The answer is to utilize the only real estate we have left in a project that benefits local artists and the community alike.

 

 

 

 

What We Need & What You Get

So, we need to fill this wall with eye-popping color that will make The Lake Park Arts District visible from outer space! Okay, maybe that’s a bit unrealistic, but we still want to beautify this town with public art. The extent to which the wall gets painted depends on how much money we raise.

100% of all the funds raised will be going towards supplies, rental equipment, permitting and actually paying these artists because artwork is WORK. Once we reach our initial goal any additional money raised will be put into escrow and applied to the next round of muralists until we are able to paint the entire 700 building (pretty much a city block) every six months. After that, we start again right back at the beginning so there is always fresh imagery to inspire our community.

 

 

Now to the good part… What you get in return for your support! We have a bunch of great perks at all different contribution levels, the majority of which center around “The 4yr Anniversary Block Party” scheduled for May 12, 2018. This will serve as our official wrap party and unveiling of the finished mural. Food trucks, vendors, craft beer, live music, art demonstrations, and much more will be going down as we put the finishing touches on this masterpiece the day of. Not a local? No problem, many of our perks are easily shipped so you can help support this project from anywhere in the world. At the very least, come party with us at this free event and see what’s happening at The Lake Park Arts District for yourself!

“Abundant Life Within” by Maria Lentine

 

 

In addition to batik and painting, Maria also creates beautiful jewelry.  She is largely self taught but has studied and learned from very gifted artists of design and watercolor. Through her art she is able to offer different parts of her personality.  Her serious adult side is shown through her watercolors and her playful child side shows in her soft batik paintings.  She feels working in acrylics brings out her philosophical side which shows in her black and white series.  

 

“Snowbirds” by Maria Lentine

 

Maria worked and traveled with Club Med for five years teaching English and found that no matter what country she was visiting, the sunrises and sunsets and the tranquility of the tropical landscape were a constant and gave her peace.  Since then she has worked with designers and clients creating hand painted fabrics, murals, commissioned paintings and directing art galleries.

 

“Awake At Dawn and Give Thanks for another day of  loving” by Maria Lentine

 

After a severe accident, Maria’s painting arm was crushed and reconstructed.  She found that painting and jewelry making served as a healing method in regaining her mobility and motor skills.  She also discovered yoga was able to aid in her rehab and it became a transformative experience.

“Yoga and art are who I am and my intention is to continue sharing this with others.”

 

“Opening to the fruits of life” by Maria Lentine

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization beginning its 37th year.  It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

Portrait Of Old Floresta Plein Air Paintings Featured At Boca Raton Museum Of Art School. Opening Reception April 6

The Boca Raton Museum Art School is hosting an exhibit of painting by the Plein Air Palm Beach artists group. The exhibit opens on Friday, April 6, with a reception to meet the artists. The paintings on exhibit were each painted on site in the historic Old Floresta neighborhood behind the Art School. Old Floresta was created in the 1920’s by Addison Mizner. The lush vegetation and original Mizner houses present a picturesque view of old Florida. Plein Air Palm Beach is an active artists group that organizes painting meet ups and exhibits throughout Palm Beach County.  This exhibit will be available for one week only, until April 12, 2018.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  New, Spring classes at the Art School start April 16, 2018.
