Center for Spiritual Care Announces the 2018-19 Art Show Schedule:
Six solo exhibitions will highlight next season’s art schedule at the Center for Spiritual Care in Vero Beach. Warren Obluck, the Center’s cultural coordinator, said the lineup “underlines both our commitment to the area’s artists and the community’s growing interest in the outstanding art that is being produced here.”
The art season will open at the Center in November with an installation by Suzy Mellott, the highly popular chronicler of Vero’s lifestyles and ambience, entitled “Bloom.”
December will bring the crystalline abstractions of Rita Barone, a rising star on the local art scene. Her exhibition will be titled “Between the Lines.”
Sharon Sexton, whose murals and installations grace a number of Vero Beach institutions, will transform the Center in January with an installation based on nature themes. It will be called “Reflection.”
One of the nation’s fastest rising artists, Jill Kerwick, will show her surprising multi-media works in February. She comes to the Center with an exhibition called “Leaving Home and Other Stories” after a series of well-receivd solo shows at museums and galleries in the Northeast.
The elegantly dynamic abstractions of Susan Bouma will be featured in March with a show entitled “Borrowed Spaces.”
And the series will come to a close in April with a an retrospective of representational work by the influential teacher and painter, Deborah Gooch. Much new work will be included in this exhibition, fittingly called “Life Illustrated.”
All shows will open on the evening of the Gallery Stroll, the first Friday of the month, with an artist’s reception open to the public. The Center, which aims to integrate creativity with mind, body and spirit, is located two blocks north of the main library at 1550 24th Street in Vero Beach.
