ARTISTS' GUILD MEETING PROGRAMS
Meetings at the Church of the Annunciation
Holmes Beach, 6:30PM
Monday, April 4th
The Artists' Guild of Anna Maria Island is pleased to have Richard Brasil, vertical artist, as program speaker Monday, April 4, at the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation, 4408 Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach. Social time will begin at 6:30 pm and the program starts at 7 pm. There will be a brief members' meeting.
Anyone shopping at Keeton's Arts and Office Supplies has seen Richie's work on the side of their storage building. In collaboration with artist Eddie Rivera, he created a 3-sided mural celebrating all of the Star Wars movies, completed the same week "Star Wars: the Force Awakens" opened. While Richie and Eddie were not paid for this project, it has led to paying projects for them, and we'll hear about some of those.
This event is free and the public is welcome.
April 8th Art Walk
As part of the Art District's April Art Walk, Artists and fellow Gallery Committee members Kathy Sparks, Chris Collins and Joanne Wilhelm will be featured Friday evening, April 8, 5:30-7:30pm at the Artists' Guild Gallery in the Island Shopping Center at Gulf and Marina in Holmes Beach.
Kathy Sparks is the Island's original "Beach Chic" artist, painting mermaids and other whimsical coastal images in acrylic on canvas. She has also recently self published her first children's book, "Ocean's Tale", for which she created the story as well as the artwork.
Joanne Wilhelm learned crochet from her grandmother and now creates on-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets, combining the meditative process of crochet with the artistic pleasures of colors, textures and patterns.
Chris Collins had beeb taking pictures for a long time, but found in digital photography the freedom he needed to edit and print his own pictures. He also does his own matting and creates frames that better enhance his work.
