ABOUT THE ARTS COUNCIL

Arts Essential for Strong Communities

“The arts are essential to building strong communities and successful companies. Through the arts, we expand our horizons; we learn to communicate more effectively and to appreciate diverse ways of thinking—critical skills in today’s world. The arts also help us think more creatively, which can lead us to greater innovation in our more technology-focused pursuits. Science, technology and business would be the poorer without the arts.” - Jim McNemey, President and CEO of The Boeing Company I don’t think a stronger case could be made for keeping the creative arts as a critical component of a student’s education; and moreover, a case to encourage collaboration among diverse organizations and artists. Through collaboration, unique ideas lead to projects that might never have been created otherwise. For over 33 years, the Council has fostered collaboration between artists, students, organizations and classrooms. We are a stronger community and will be long into the future thanks to the creativity that has resulted. Thanks to everyone who is a part of that vibrant legacy! We are now dreaming about the next 30 years. Let us hear your ideas on building a stronger community for the next generation… our eyes and ears are open! Nancy K. Turrell, Executive Director Lisa P. Young, Chairperson

PROFILES MICKEY PLANKER has always been an “outdoorsy” and adventurous kind of guy. After high school, his love of the outdoors took him south to enjoy the sun and surf of South Florida where he attended the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale.

It was the surf that helped him to stumble upon Stuart and the Treasure Coast where he’s been since 1998, continuing to enjoying the area and all it has to offer. With more than 20 years of experience in design, Mickey Planker has won numerous ADDY Awards for logo and graphic designs for clients such as Delta Airlines, Siemens Corp., TKO Boxing, the Stuart Air Show and others. In 2007, he diversified his professional portfolio and joined the Army National Guard. He was deployed to Afghanistan in support of “Operation Enduring Freedom” from October of 2012 to August of 2013. While deployed, he learned about the logo contest for the new bridge being built in Stuart and saw it as an opportunity to connect with home. He realized that if his design won, he would be a part of Martin County’s history. Contact info: (772) 349-3558 mickeyplanker@gmail.com

INSIDE TRACK

Featuring the equestrian artists: Anthony Alonso, Mindy Colton & Anne T. Converse Opening Night Reception: Thursday, December 5th Exhibition runs through Friday, February 7th

Anthony Alonso

INSIDE TRACK

The Winners Circle Diamond Dinner has custom designed a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted pendant for the Arts Council, from an oil painting by famed thoroughbred horse portrait artist, Anthony Alonso. This piece, “Funny Cide,� was crafted by Terry Reiger to honor the artist. It is set with diamond baguettes and one round brilliant (1/3 ct total weight of diamonds) set in 14 kt yellow gold. The sterling horse and rider is hand-enamel on a Florentine neck wire. Tickets include a 5-course gourmet dinner at Diamonds Tea Room & Bistro plus a chance to win this exquisite pendant. They are now available for purchase. Tickets are limited to the first 40 sold. This exclusive event will be held on Saturday, December 7th at 6 pm. Tickets are $125/ person and can be purchased on-line at the martinarts.org or by visiting the office located in the historic Court House Cultural Center.


ANTHONY M. ALONSO’S passion was creating fine arts paintings of famous thoroughbreds, their owners and their environment. A coffee table book entitled The Fine Art of Anthony Alonso was published in 2007 and contains 150 images of Mr. Alonso’s original oil paintings. Original paintings are on permanent display in public collections at Arlington, Belmont, Churchill Downs, Laurel, Santa Anita andWoodbine Race Tracks, The National Museum of Racing & Hall of Fame and the Seacoast National Bank, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Alonso was a graduate of both The High School of Music and Art in New York City and Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. He also studied at The Art Students League in New York under Samuel Oppenheim and John Howard Sanden. Sadly, Mr. Alonso passed away earlier this year.

MINDY Z. COLTON Award-winning Orlando artist Mindy Z. Colton, originally from New York City, was classically trained in all the traditional arts: painting, sculpture, drawing, print making and photography, she pursued a career in Graphic Design & illustration. She eventually left behind her successful career to follow her true passion as a fine artist. Her focus in recent years has been on sculpture in various materials and large outdoor art. Involved with horses her entire life, she chose to combine her passion for both art and equine in her unique sculptural works. Colton lives on a small horse farm in East Orlando and is also invited to judge, jury and curate exhibits. She also judges dressage horse shows. Her work is in museums and galleries and in public and private collections across the United States, Canada and Europe.

ANNE T. CONVERSE grew up with photographsthe black and white snapshots of relatives: stately portraits, candids and fond family moments. Also photographs from the LIFE magazines, National Geographic and the US Camera helped shape her intuitive sense and personal vision of photography. In the early 1990s, Converse pursued a longtime desire to photograph the thoroughbred scene. Since then, she’s photographed in the winter months at Payson Park Thoroughbred Training Center in Florida. And has visited many tracks in the US and in France and England. Photographing the people and the lifestyle has helped fine-tune my personal vision, in all aspects of my photography. Her book released October 2013, The Mystique of the Thoroughbreds, A Visual Journey, is a collection of photographs from these last twenty years.

“The Arts Council has grown and accomplished great things in 33 years: arts education, exhibitions of fine local art as well as national and international exhibits, WSA, conferences serving local artists, ArtsFest and much more. My mother was one of the original docents at the Court House Cultural Center and over the years she loved to talk about the experiences and friendships she enjoyed at the CHCC. Let’s come together as a community to ensure that the Arts Council continues to grow and serve during the next 30 plus years. That’s what my family has done. Please ask about Arts Legacy today and how your family can help.” Maureen O’Connor Deighan, Arts Council Board Chairman, 1993-1996

LEGACY PROGRAM

Mike Pettengill with the lights provided by the Art of Light program

About Terri & Michael Pettengill: As an art student beginning at age 7 with Saturday classes at the Toledo Museum of Art and continuing through to a degree in Commercial Art, Terri knows the value of the great community service the Arts Council provides. This is just one of the reasons Michael and Terri feel it is so important to contribute their time and resources to help in any way they can in bringing the culture of art to Treasure Coast. Michael was especially pleased and proud to design and install the beautiful lighting of the Court House Cultural Center which is the home of the Arts Council through their company’s “Art of Light” program. Whether through volunteer hours, donations or planning a legacy it is their pleasure to continue their contribution to the arts here at home in Martin County.

Cultural Conversations represents a new concept to tie together our many efforts to engage the community in all things artistic with a goal to inspire greater participation in and a passion for the arts in our community. Through our Cultural Conversations, we intend to provide interesting and evocative dialogue designed around P.L.A.C.E. (people, land, arts, culture and engagement).


PICTURE PEOPLE Impact on Young Students DURING THE 2012 –13 SCHOOL year, the Picture People Program visited with third graders at Jensen Beach and Citrus Grove Elementary Schools, compliments of the Arts Council of Martin County, who created the program. Each month two artists were showcased to approximately 200 students who learned about each artist’s life and their rich legacy in the annals of visual art. Touched and inspired by their paintings, the children’s eyes opened to the world of art, not only in the past, but in their own lives as well. Debra Magrann and Debra Alessandra happily volunteered their love and service to the students of Martin County and were fortunate to experience the impact they made. Lead teacher, Kim Brown, speaks for all the teachers when she explains, “Picture People is a great program that enriches our students. The students look forward to Ms. Alessandra’s visits and can’t wait to learn about the artist each month. This program allows the students an opportunity to learn about the great artists that have made an impact in the past. We are very fortunate to have this program available to our students.” Story contributed by Debra Alessandro

“It was a joy to share with such an eager and attentive audience,” Mrs. Alessandra noted.

“A few of their many comments are quite telling.”


THE ARTS COUNCIL ENCOURAGES YOU to immerse your child in the arts! Let them find their passion for Dance, Drama, Sculpting, Drawing, Music, Painting and more… Let us know if you are working with kids to enhance their creativity… we’ll add you our growing list of resources!

Thomas Winter

THIS STATEWIDE CULTURAL conference will provide opportunities for meaningful professional development for Florida artists and individuals involved in Florida’s cultural organizations. Convening Culture 2014 will also offer specific opportunities for participants to learn about the potential long term collaborations and crossover between arts programming and environmental conservation. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about these two areas from nationally recognized leaders in addition to having the opportunity to network and learn from one another. The conference fee of $70 per person includes attendance at the Tuesday evening Opening Reception and Talk from 5:30 to 7:30 in the beautiful Laura and Bill Buck Atrium at the Museum. Conference attendance includes lunch and the full day of all conference sessions on January 29th. For more information and other event details visit: www.florida-arts.org/conveningculture/

Josef Albers’ extensive contribution as an artist and educator. A number of Albers’ paintings will be on display, as well as the work of two of his students; Neil Welliver and Jane Davis Doggett. Welliver and Doggett mastered Albers’ discipline of the interaction of color, and made it, in decidedly different ways, central to their work. In this exhibition, the Elliott Museum will continue its commitment to combine traditional museum experiences with interactive learning. Throughout the exhibit, visitors will take part in hands-on color experiments, allowing them to create their own color palettes, to experience and explain color-blindness, and ultimately, how colors combine to complement and confound - inviting you to experience color as never before.
