“We put out a call to local artists to support the new Art Village downtown and were gratified that more than 30 prominent local artists responded,” said John Ryan, president of the Friends of the Vero Beach Art Village. This is just the kind of support we need to make the new Art Village a success”
The exhibit’s opening night will be held on May 21st from 5-9 p.m., at Raw Space Gallery, 1795 Old Dixie Hwy, Vero Beach, FL 32960. The opening night will feature speakers, a silent auction of the art, and information about the development of the Art Village.
The Vero Beach Art Village is a reimagining of the historical Edgewood neighborhood in the city’s downtown area as a living celebration of the arts. Its zoning as a special purpose district allows a mixed residential and commercial environment where artists and other small merchants can live, work, and sell their art.
