July Arts Update

Wow, it's been exactly a month since I managed to leave a new blog! And its not for lack of art events either! Between setting up the Osceola Art in Public Places schedule, teaching Summer Art Camp at St. Cloud Arts, hanging at 1st Thursday at the Orlando Museum of Art, Striking the AKA Feminati:Sacrifice Show and personally showing work at both Urban Think! Bookstore and Mel's Bad Girl Club: Sensory Overload show at City Arts Factory for 3rd Thursday, I'd say it's been a pretty amazing month for art here in Central Florida!

Coming up at The Beauty Spot on July 30th in College Park Feminati:LIVE will be in full swing with artists Patrick Fatica, Patricia Stever, Beth Hughes Juliana Davidson and Nyahzul with media coverage by 407 Oasis, PrettyCity.com and Orlando Style - it will be the place to BE from 6-9p! Also be sure to check out the Feminati:SACRIFICE video on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcPtBrH4HLg - special thanks to Ken Burgland for producing the video!

On a less encouraging note - City Arts Factory has had to reduce it's staff down to 2 people - the Executive Director and a Marketing Director along with Board volunteers... this meant that Chuck Dinkins the former Facilities Director was relieved of his position after 2 long and hard working years of keeping order in the metro-friendly downtown art space. Chuck will be sincerely missed for his inspiration and mad support for the arts and music - but we know that he will not be disappearing into the shadows of Orlando, Chuck has always been a key element for the arts in Central Florida, and will continue to do so!
