BIG NEWS for Lake Park, FL!!!!


Here is the latest from AJ Brockman, “The Brewhouse Gallery has so much good news flying around on a daily basis that things sometimes get lost. That being said, this week marks one of the most incredible opportunities we could have ever hoped for. This is not a joke so please prepare yourselves, We have purchased an entire CITY BLOCK! That’s right, the team behind Brewhouse Gallery has taken the next step in revitalizing Lake Park and building something special by taking over ownership of the whole building. This includes bringing back the Mos’Art Theater (or as some of you may remember it the Kelsey Club). At this point we are all in… All in because we believe in what this area is becoming, the amazing support we get from all of you every day, the staff (or family as we like to say) behind us, and the ultimate vision of building a community”.





“Now, the real work begins. The sort of work that will ultimately change history. In this work we need your help… So please spread the word on what we are doing, scream it if you have to. We have a bunch of retail spaces available and we would love to hear what sort of project you might be interested in bringing to the scene. Keep an eye out for some brainstorming sessions and community forms in which we want feedback from all of you. We truly could have never imagined this journey and outcome in only a few short years, but it’s possible because of all of you and that can’t be said enough. The future is now, let’s do this!!”

An International Day of Action and Mourning

in response to the AIDS Crisis

In 1989, in response to the worsening AIDS crisis and coinciding with the World Health Organization’s second annual World AIDS Day on December 1, Visual AIDS organized the first Day With(out )Art. A Visual AIDS committee of art workers (curators, writers, and art professionals) sent out a call for “mourning and action in response to the AIDS crisis” that would celebrate the lives and achievements of lost colleagues and friends; encourage caring for all people with AIDS; educating diverse publics about HIV infection; and finding a cure. More than 800 arts organizations, museums and galleries throughout the U.S. participated by shrouding artworks in black cloth and replacing them with information about HIV and safer sex, locking their doors or dimming their lights, and producing exhibitions, programs, readings, memorials, rituals, and performances. Visual AIDS coordinated this network mega­event by producing a poster, handling promotion and press relations.


Important Dates:

  • November 24th: Submissions and Application Form Due


  • December 1st: Day With(out) Art/World AIDS Day: All artwork is shrouded in black cloth to represent the loss the art world has experienced due to HIV/AIDS


  • December 2nd: Artist reception, unveiling of art, and auction


  • December 2nd through December 11: NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt and Exhibition on display

In early 2013 with the help (and at the urging of) Frank Basta Jr., Nationally known artist/activist, Craig McInnis and Rolando Barrero (local artists and activists themselves) created a THINK TANK. Dedicated to finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems, the THINK TANK was a forum for local artists of all kinds to come together and discuss ideas to help the local scene grow.

The first initiative that Rolando,Craig and Freddy Hennevelt wanted to tackle was a program of events to coincide with ArtPalmBeach; in hopes that the local scene could benefit from the popular art event much like Miami has benefitted from Art Basel. Soon it was named ART SYNERGY and took shape.

ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs / Public Arts Departments / the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach county (to name a few), ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward.

ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community.

Delray Art League Announces Next Meeting Featuring JoAnn Nava, Numerous Exhibits And Call For New Members

The Delray Art League (DAL) invites you to their next monthly meeting on November 9th. JoAnn Nava will present and demonstrate. For over 30 years, JoAnn used her painting skills in the trades of decorative painting, murals, faux finishing and restorations. The result is visible in the painting she’s been producing in her fine art. Manipulating latex house paint has challenges different from acrylic and oil. It is a visual language all its own. In this demonstration, a painting will be created from a limited color palette. Viewing artists will see the advantages of using this medium by itself or as a substrate for other mediums.  The Rickie Report shares the details about this event and upcoming exhibits.  DAL is a terrific artist networking organization.  Stop by !

Fine Art Painting by JoAnn Nava




For over 30 years, JoAnn used her painting skills in the trades of decorative painting, murals, faux finishing and restorations. The result is visible in the painting she’s been producing in her fine art. Manipulating latex house paint has challenges different from acrylic and oil. It is a visual language all its own. In this demonstration, a painting will be created from a limited color palette. Viewing artists will see the advantages of using this medium by itself or as a substrate for other mediums. The affordability and variety of color make it ideal for large projects or alternative outcomes.




Non-members are invited to attend. No fee is associated however a $5.00 donation at the door to the Jack Feinberg Art Education Fund would be greatly appreciated.
