The Rickie Report shares the details.

 

 

 

MartinArts.org or call 772-287-6676

ArtsFest is traveling back to its traditional location: 

Memorial Park and along East Ocean Boulevard  

HOURS:  10 am – 5 pm  Both Days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Named one of the area’s Top 20 Events by the Southeast Tourism Society!

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t miss this ever-evolving event!

 

 

 

“We always aim to surprise and delight guests who attend Artsfest, and this year will be no different,” said Nancy Turrell, CEO of MartinArts Foundation. “ArtsFest is truly an extension of the expansive arts community we have on the Treasure Coast, and we love this opportunity to highlight their accomplishments.”

 

 

FIND    A    TURTLE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The beloved pre-ArtsFest scavenger hunt for glass turtles, made by Dot Galfond and included as a part of the Office of Tourism’s “Arts & Culture Trail” may get you a free entry or a VIP package

 

 

ArtsFest’s favorite CHOPPED takes place during the day on Saturday.

 

 

 

 

 

Watch talented students and professional artists create outstanding chalk art that is a part of a grant from the State of Florida, Division of Arts & Culture to bring new art educational experiences to middle school students, which expands MartinArts programming into this vital age range. Schools and community groups will compete for awards for works that will being created on Saturday morning and judged on Sunday afternoon.

 

 

 

 

Sunday will feature “Art Speaks,” in which a dozen-plus in-person competitors will be vying for the best-spoken word poetry award. Judges will be selected from the audience. Spoken word poet Stella B will organize the day’s activities and liven up the day. Registration is filled, but a wait list is being maintained.

 

 

What is a poetry slam?

 

 

Think of a slam as a live poetry competition. Like an open mic, people perform their work to an audience. However, in a slam, there is a competitive element – invited judges (usually people who are not used to seeing a slam) score readers on how well a poem is written and delivered, with the top scorers going through to the next round.  In this slam, there will be three rounds: the first round is open to all poets (12-15). However, in the second round, 8 people get through (the top 8 scorers as determined by the judges), and 4 through to the third and final round. Each read a new poem each round to determine who will be Slam Champion!

 

 

 

 

Volunteers are the only way ArtsFest happens each and every year. The team planning the event is driven by volunteers. During the weekend, more than 100 people serve in roles that would have salaries of tens of thousands of dollars. Simply put, ArtsFest wouldn’t happen without volunteers. Find out what jobs and time slots are available at ArtsFestStuart.org and sign up today.

The Back-Story

 

In 2000, Ronnie and Barbara Hedgepeth opened a small frame shop in Jensen Beach, Florida.  Childhood sweethearts, Ronnie had been the southeast regional manager of the frame business at Ben Franklin stores for many years. They named their store Friendly Framers. Ronnie and Barbara welcomed one and all with their southern charm and folksy ways, making friends of each of their customers.

As the years passed the business grew and moved into a much larger space in the Cedar Pointe Plaza on Ocean Boulevard in Stuart, where they flourished. Upon Ronnie’s death in 2019, Barbara vowed to keep the family business going. Three years later, when she called us, owners of The Gilt Complex in downtown Stuart, and asked if we would take over the business. She announced she was retiring to live with her son in the mountains of North Carolina.

For us, it was an easy decision to make. When we purchased The Gilt Complex, a custom framing and art restoration business, one of the first things we did was to stop by and introduce ourselves to Ronnie and Barbara. They couldn’t have been nicer. Instead of thinking of us as competitors, they welcomed us as colleagues – another friend. Over the years we worked together. They would refer projects to us and we to them – whenever one of us felt the other was better equipped to handle a particular situation. So, of course, when Barbara asked, we leapt at the opportunity..

That was in the summer of 2022. We remodeled the showroom, which even Barbara would tell you needed a refresh. We gave it a more modern look, with white walls, gray floors, and black display cases. We even added a computerized sales system. In a very short time our business has grown, to the point we are now adding a second showroom in Tradition. We still believe in the things Ronnie and Barbara believed in – a wide selection of high-quality frames and framing accessories, a strong devotion to the craft of framing, and an unwavering dedication to service with a smile.

With the remodeling of the showroom and a new store in Tradition, we decided that a complete rebranding was in order. Thus, Modern Edge Frameworks was born. We work closely with The Gilt Complex, who provides all our delivery and installation services. And we continue to build upon Ronnie and Barbara’s legacy, making friends with everyone who enters our showroom.
