The Treasure Coast Arts & Mindfulness Fest is long overdue! Organized by St. Lucie Cultural Alliance in partnership with MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Event Center, “Art and mindfulness warm our hearts and lift our spirits as we journey through life,” says Executive Director Alyona Ushe. “Combining the mind-opening benefits of art with the healing benefits of mindfulness is a perfect marriage”.

 

The Treasure Coast Arts & Mindfulness Fest is designed to enhance the cultural community while the fundraiser will further empower the organization to showcase local and regional talent.  We encourage artists from all over the state and beyond to be part of this festival”, Alyona adds.

 

This is the Alliance’s major fundraising event for the year to raise funds for the nonprofit organization artists grants program. This fest will also promote the arts, local artists, and provide value, fun, and entertainment for the whole family.

 

There will be painters, potters, photographers and sculptors; artists who create works from recycled components as well as fashion designers. Live music, dance productions and spoken word performance pieces will take place on stage. A children’s corner featuring family activities and crafts will provide the opportunity to create hands-on art. Multiple food trucks will tempt visitors with aromatic healthy food choices.

While most art lovers are mindful, and in turn, many mindfulness practitioners surround themselves with beautiful art, the Treasure Coast Arts & Mindfulness Fest will inspire everyone to “jump over the fence” to find new ways of enjoying every day. “The arts and mindfulness offer a natural partnership between two powerful disciplines,” says Alyona. Linda McCarthy, Director of MIDFLORIDA Event Center agrees. “Arts and cultural activities inspire civic pride, connect generations, bridge diverse groups, and serve as a symbol of Port St. Lucie,” says McCarthy.

 

All funds received from sponsorships and vendor fees will go into the Cultural Alliance’s Grant Fund to be awarded to artists and cultural organizations, as will monies raised from the sale of auction items and raffles. According to Alyona, the Grant Fund already has accumulated $25,000: $10,000 from the city of Port St. Lucie which helped launch the program and $15,000 from St.Lucie County and from the Florida Arts License Plate program. All grant awards will be awarded only to local entities “so we can continue growing the local cultural landscape,” says Alyona.

 

Deena Rahill, a Certified Sound Healing Practitioner is the organizer of the mindfulness portion of the Fest. She will play a set of crystal bowls in a live performance while Lisa Jill Allison paints a canvas for a symbiotic art and sound experience. Sound can be used to unblock creativity and focus the mind. Deena describes a crystal bowl sound bath as a meditative acoustic sound concert. It is quite an experience to be immersed in vibrational sound, one that lulls the listener into a peaceful and mindful state of being.

 

 

For those who are unfamiliar with crystal bowls, each one is made from 99.8 percent pure quartz crystal and is tuned to a particular note of the musical scale. When played, the sound frequencies affect brainwave activity, slowing down brain waves to enter a deeply restorative state, where the body rebalances itself to self-heal.  “Creative mindfulness activities assist in the development of self-awareness and resilience,” says Deena. Both mindfulness and art creation are linked to a flow state, one that allows a person to think in different ways. “When we practice mindfulness, we’re practicing the art of creating space for ourselves – space to think, space to breathe, space between ourselves and our reactions,” she adds.  Deena believes that, “The Treasure Coast Arts & Mindfulness Fest offers the opportunity to explore different modalities and find local providers who can help people discover and embrace new ways of managing their life. Ultimately, community is immunity.”

Color field painting is a style of abstract painting that emerged in New York City during the 1940s and 1950s. Color field is characterized primarily by large fields of flat, solid color spread across or stained into the canvas creating areas of unbroken surface and a flat picture plane. The movement places less emphasis on gesture, brushstrokes and action in favor of an overall consistency of form and process. Color field examples include using formats of stripes, targets, simple geometric patterns and references to landscape imagery and to nature.
