The Beauty Spot review

Carolina Suarez-Garcia at The Beauty Spot

What an amazing night at The Beauty Spot in College Park on Thursday night (Mar. 26th). Who can go wrong with great beauty service deals, sushi, new artwork on the walls and live artwork on the front porch? A few sales, meager as they may have been, still beats many of the bigger gallery events that I participate in and/or put on in other venues. No complaints here, new clients to woo and a great atmosphere equals win/win for moi, (artists) Pam Treadwell, Carolina Suarez-Garcia, Patricia Stever and Maria Molinas as well as Jenni, Kellyann, Noel and the rest of The Beauty Spot gang!

Here we go, the beginning of a new day for a not so new relationship. Back in mid-2007 I received a phone call from Yolanda Marshall, publisher of the fledgling Osceola Oasis magazine, who was looking for visual artists in the Osceola County area to provide a spotlight for in their first issue. As the Director of Visual Arts for the Osceola Center for the Arts I receive quite a few inquiries from editors of local newspapers but the thought of a 'Style' magazine in Osceola County, who wants to include the visual arts too? I was so excited!
Four issues and 7 artist spotlights later and here we are, entering the blog generation and building on a great start which is now expanding to the entire Central Florida area. With Creative Director Carlos Cayasso snapping pictures all over town and the continued support of local advertisers we are on a roll and ready for anything!
Our hope is to provide incite for our readers into the world of local art and style in our community as well as listings for 'Be There or Be Square' upcoming events.
Thank you for stopping by! Sincerely yours ~ jules
