Editor’s note

High time, good life ast night, I was at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse watching the holiday boat parade. The boats arrived at the end point a bit ahead of schedule, so I only caught the tail end of the parade. But I’m still so glad I went. Standing on the pier, swept up in all the lights, the sea, and the spirit of it all was a wonderful way to reflect on 2021. There have been many changes in my life this past year—some good, others not so great. As Robert Hunter so touchingly put it, one day you can be having a high time, living the good life. The next, everything gets turned on its head. Life is a roller coaster for sure.... But being outside in that mesmerizing, light-filled environment last night made me look toward 2022 with so much anticipation of what might be to come. Because we never know what’s in store for us, often waiting just around the corner. I want to use this space this month to send out my appreciation to everyone who helps put out this magazine every month. To our incredible team of freelance writers, photographers, and stylists, contributing editors, talented art directors, the sales team and production squad... It’s been about two years since I’ve joined the magazine as editor in chief, and I feel so lucky to be here doing what I love and proud of the product we create month after month. So thank you, team! I can’t wait to see what 2022 has in store for me. And I hope, for all of you too, that the best is yet to come.

Hello, 2022! CHASIN A DREAM PHOTOGRAPHY

H

appy New Year! I don’t know about you, but 2021 seemed to flash by in an instant. Perhaps it’s because we slowly got back to our normal routines, traveled more, and (thankfully) didn’t have as many Zoom calls. Being able to attend events and meet more clients and readers in person again has been wonderful. That’s what I really love about my job—the community. Our editor has been diligently working on fantastic editorial content for the new year. This issue focuses on art and culture, and as I write this letter, I am looking forward to reading about some of our area’s rich history. For those of you interested in advertising, peek at what’s to come this season in our 2022 media kit. We also have our Home Resource Guide special advertising section running now through March in both Stuart Magazine and Jupiter Magazine. This section is a great way to reach many readers, spanning from Port St. Lucie down to North Palm Beach, who may be looking for some home inspiration. Shoot me an email if you’d like to be a part of it. As always, stay connected to our area’s happenings by heading to stuartmagazine.com and signing up for our weekly Insider newsletter. I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season and a joyous time ringing in the new year. I appreciate all of our readers and advertisers who support Stuart Magazine. One final shoutout: I am so proud to be a part of a creative team that embodies passion, grace, and limitless talent. Happy New Year to you all! I’ll see you around town.

here’s no better time than the new year to explore new interests. This month, why not give beekeeping a try? Hani Honey Company, which has a storefront and café in downtown Stuart, recently launched beekeeping and hive maintenance lessons for burgeoning beekeepers. Assuming you have your own bees and gear, the instructors will come to you. Locals with no bees to call their own can attend a session at one of Hani Honey’s

apiaries in Martin County. In other exciting news, Chris and Jennifer Holmes, the brains behind Hani, also recently launched a meadery, where they make their own mead—an alcoholic tipple that’s fermented with honey instead of grapes, also known as “honey wine”—earning them a spot on the Treasure Coast Wine & Ale Trail. Theirs is the first meadery in Martin County. $75/one-hour beekeeping lesson; hanihoneycompany.com —Skye Sherman

If you’re easily distracted by shiny objects, you won’t be able to resist browsing the glittering selection of fine nautical jewelry at NatureCraft Jewelry. Even those who aren’t on the hunt for new furnishings will enjoy stopping by the Broward Casting booth, where you’ll find custom outdoor patio furniture and artwork by these makers of aluminum dock equipment, mailboxes, and nautical-themed furniture.

Connley Fishing has been building custom rods since 1989, so check out their booth for an extensive selection of rods and reels as well as a variety of other fishing equipment.

Time for a vacation? This year, the Association of Bahamas Marinas is sponsoring the Bahamian Pavilion, where you’ll find information on resorts and travel in the Bahamas. Stuart-based Legacy Marine has been in the industry for more than 30 years and remains family-owned and operated; stop by to check out their large inventory of new and pre-owned boats.

orking from home is a pandemic-propelled trend that looks like it’s here to stay. But while it comes with many perks, if you’ve done it long enough you know how lonely it can be. Enter 901Hub, located in the heart of The Creek Arts & Entertainment District in downtown Stuart. For remote workers and the self-employed, the next-gen community space combines the flexibility of working from home with the camaraderie of an office environment. Here, private offices are populated by local entrepreneurs, artists, and innovators. You never know who you’ll run into at the shared coffee bar or lounge area—hair stylists, tattoo artists, attorneys, and others all share amenities like meeting rooms, event space, and a kitchen. Becoming a member is a great way to meet other makers and shakers who are carving their own path while calling Stuart home. 901hub.com

Prizewinning Poet PORT ST. LUCIE’S DOROTHY KAMM FINDS INSPIRATION ALL AROUND HER Dorothy Kamm recently won first place in the Free Verse category for her poem Satori in a contest by the Florida State Association of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW). Here, she talks about her writing journey and sources of inspiration. When did you discover your writing talent? When I was a child growing up, my grandparents lived with my parents, my brother, and me, as was common at the time. Living in such close quarters, I developed an imaginary and very private world. Like many creative people, I needed a lot of personal space. I would get up when it was still dark and everyone was sound asleep, descend into the basement, and draw and color for about an hour. When I was in first grade and learned to read, I started writing and illustrating my own books. I knew then that I was destined to be a writer and an artist.

What inspires your work? My poetry often incorporates snippets of my environment, Dorothy Kamm including descriptions of the sky, observations made during walks in my neighborhood, the rooms in my home, and events that occur in my life and in the community. Letting my mind wander frequently brings forth a concept for a poem. Sometimes, a poem will form based on something I have read. What’s your favorite recent read? I recently read the poetry book Lighthead by Terrance Hayes, which won the National Book Award for Poetry in 2010. His word-weaving is amazing and his topics and subjects poignant. My all-time favorite poet is Pulitzer Prize winner Edna St. Vincent Millay. Her imagery calls to me.

emstones are known for renewal and new beginnings— a perfect way to start out the new year. I love amethyst in a home because it’s a protective stone that helps relieve stress and anxiety. Kalifano is the most respected and widely known store to shop for gemstones, and I’m in love with all of their amethyst decor. Speaking of decor, these agate coasters from West Elm are a great way to revamp your abode. Agate stones give strength and courage, enhance mental function, and keep your mind sharp—so why not use all of that positive reinforcement to soak up your vodka soda condensation? Shopping local is always top of mind for me, and I adore Via Coquina in Palm Beach, which carries this diamond and sapphire Ileana Makri Cats Eye ring, meant to ward off bad energy. When I saw these jeweled pajamas by Tashka by Beatrice, I immediately scooped up a pair and then another pair for a friend. They are truly unique! And finally, treat yourself to a little sparkly indulgence for the new year with a custom diamond ring like this one from Diana M. Jewels. They’re pricey, but in the words of C.S. Lewis, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” Happy 2022! xo, Emily PROTECTIVE BLING Ileana Makri Cats Eye Ring, $2,320, Via Coquina, Palm Beach

The Beat Goes On JAMES SQUIRES HAS SPENT 70 YEARS CULTIVATING THE CAREER OF A TRUE RENAISSANCE MAN, DABBLING IN EVERYTING FROM MUSIC AND THEATER TO MARKETING AND COMPUTERS

Charmings, a four-piece jazz-inspired combo. His bands play regularly from Stuart to Lake Worth, at venues including Mulligan’s Beach House and Terra Fermata in Stuart, Taco Tiki in Jensen Beach, Brewhouse Gallery in Lake Park, and Rudy’s Pub in Lake Worth. He is now putting together a third band that specializes in Cajun zydeco, a blend of blues and rhythm and blues with Mardi Gras themes. “Seasonal South Florida residents love local live music,” he notes. “We are lucky to have many world-class musicians living right here.” Born in Battle Creek, Michigan, Squires was drawn to music at an early age. “I have always loved it, ever since listening

to classical gems like “War of 1812” that my parents used to play while cleaning our house in Michigan,” he says. When he was 5, he moved to Miami with his divorced mother and older sister to be near his mom’s parents. He recalls he and his sister would sing pop music together for fun at a local roller rink, and he joined the chorus in junior high school. The first time he sang for a real audience was as a student at Southwest Miami High School. “In my last year of high school, I sang in a professional group that performed shows at the big Miami Beach hotels like Eden Roc and Algiers,” he says. I was a master of ceremonies and sang two or three songs.” In 1970, while studying at Miami Dade

upiter resident James Squires has entertained thousands of people all over the world, some whose names are very familiar. Back in the ’80s, he sang at the White House three times for President Reagan. In 1988, he performed at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II. He has entertained audiences from Florida to New York with his tenor voice and the various instruments he plays—bongos, congas, tambourine, shakers, and the Zendrum, which is a wood instrument worn like a guitar and programmed like a computer. He has built movie sets in Miami, performed in iconic Broadway musicals (The Music Man, Guys and Dolls, My Fair Lady), and promoted theaters and arts organizations like Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington Ballet, and the former Coconut Grove Playhouse. On the other end of the spectrum, he is also a self-taught computer whiz who has built websites and computer networks and maintained Windows operating systems for corporate and residential clients. “I don’t do this for the money,” says the 70-year-old musician of performing. “Musicians travel 50 miles to set up $50,000 worth of equipment for $50 pay. I enjoy performing and interacting with the crowd. When we get feedback from the audience, it is magic.” Currently, Squires is a member of two bands—Hot Sauce Moon, a five-member group that offers eclectic classic rock, blues and Americana, and No Prince

James Squires at home in Jupiter; Squires playing around with his Zendrum (opposite page).

College, he auditioned for a madrigal choir of 24 singers with 12 harmony parts and was brought in as a tenor. “That was a coup for me,” he says. “We sang six new pieces at every rehearsal and performed in French, Latin, and English and also did gospel.” Two years into college, he left school to pursue music full-time. He performed with different bands all over Miami and even became an on-air radio personality. He also started acting in theater productions at the Coconut Grove Playhouse, including 140 performances of the 1973 play Equus by Peter Shaffer, and built sets for Italian films and various trade shows. As happens with many musicians working for the love of the art, however, the cost of living caught up with him. So, in 1982, he decided to leave Miami to go on the road promoting arts organizations (and some sports venues), staying for months at a time in different cities across the country. Eventually, he moved to Long Island, New York to work for the Long Island Philharmonic and Long Island Stage. While in New York, he joined the St. Agnes Cathedral Men and Boys Choir in Rockville Centre, which led him on three European tours singing with the choir at cathedrals, including his esteemed event for the pope. “That tour was a great experience,” he recalls. “I sang tenor, did leads and cantorial work in religious music.

and her team are redefining the approach to beauty and wellness, offering an extensive menu of treatments that include tattooing, lip blushing, lash lifts, microblading, brow lamination and tinting, facials, micro-needling, and enzyme peels. Here, Aliseo discusses the biz. (third-eyestudio.com) WHAT’S THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE NAME, THIRDEYE? It pertains to the act of closing your eyes and trusting your inner energy and intuition. I wanted a name that was meaningful and grounding. I started practicing yoga when I was 20, and it really changed my life, so I really wanted to capture and incorporate that vibe for my clients. This is safe space that’s not only about looking your best but also about self-care, self-love, and intuitively feeling good. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY SETS YOUR STUDIO APART FROM OTHERS? Our authenticity. I don’t really see others in our town doing what we're doing. For me, it’s about using intuition to know what feels good to add to the business at certain times, like hiring new artists and incorporating new services. There’s also authenticity in who we are as artists. Everyone here is either drawing or doing something artistic outside of work.

KELLY HAGEN

upiter native Remi Aliseo has been an artist all her life. With experiences in the medical field and running an activewear company under her belt, she was inspired to use her interpersonal and brand-building skills in pursuit of something that combined her loves of art and service. When she found herself between careers, she started doing eyelash extensions out of her tiny apartment in California. But Aliseo had her eyes on a bigger prize: She wanted to add microblading skills and a tattooing license to her beauty repertoire and use everything she had learned to make positive differences in people’s lives. In 2018, she founded Thirdeye Studio as a one-woman show, adding an aesthetician’s license to her accreditations. She eventually relocated to Jupiter and, to help keep up with an ever-growing client list, she hired Jensen Beach native Kelly Hagen, a tattoo artist and photographer. Soon the team grew to include three more women artists. At the Indiantown Road collective, Aliseo

Clockwise from far left: inside the studio; Aliseo's first hire, tattoo artist/photographer Kelly Hagen; Hagen at work tattooing a client.

HOW HAS IT BEEN WORKING WITH A TEAM? So good! Everyone here works really independently and has their own unique style. Each of us has something different to offer, but it has all merged in this beauty, self-care, and artistic space. It’s cool that our clients get to pick their artist or the service they want, which allows them to experience so many different things in our space. YOU SAY YOU’VE CREATED A “SAFE SPACE” AT THIRDEYE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU? Sometimes the tattoo industry can be really intimidating, especially for young women. Ninety-nine percent of our clients are women, and they walk away saying, “Wow, this experience was so different from ones I’ve had in the past.” We’ve created a more feminine energy and welcoming space for women to get services done and feel comfortable. Older women come in and experiment with their very first tattoo and say, “I've been wanting to do this all my life, and I'm finally doing it.” WHAT DOES WELLNESS LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? One of like the biggest challenges I’ve faced owning a business is finding balance. I tend to overwork myself, but, at the end of the day, my health needs to come first. I remind myself to slow down and do my yoga practice, breath work, and meditation. Being outside in nature is grounding for me. I like surfing and going to Jonathan Dickinson State Park.

HOW DO YOU HOPE TO CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR CLIENTS’ WELLNESS PRACTICES? We’re actually starting to host free “giveback” events once a month. Back in the fall, we hosted a full moon event on November 19 with sound healing, journaling, and meditation. The goal is to introduce our clients to these practices together and inspire healing. ❖

he Seminole Tribe has a word it likes to use to describe its history: unconquered. It might sound like bravado or an exaggeration, but the truth of it is remarkable. Despite military campaigns from Europe’s greatest powers and the entire might of the U.S. government, despite being chased into the swamps, despite all the trickery their enemies used to try to get them to give up, the Seminoles held strong. Consider for a moment how different that is from the stories we know of Native Americans elsewhere,

where they were largely pushed to reservations in the West. But the Seminoles—and others, including the Miccosukee— they’re still here. And their history is closer than you think. For those of us who grew up watching Westerns and hearing the “cowboys versus Indians” tales of Hollywood, it might seem like all of the good stories are based in the West. But here in South Florida, the history of the native people dates back generations, full of a rich culture, battles lost and won, and a future perhaps brighter than ever.

happened way back, about 12,000 years ago. Ayers-Rigsby works for the Florida Public Archaeology Network and is based in Jupiter at Florida Atlantic University. She says the Florida of that time was going through something it is also dealing with today: a vastly changing sea level that drastically altered the living conditions for the native people. Up until that time, the Ice Age had taken a big portion of the planet’s water and turned it into glaciers that covered the north. The peninsula that is now Florida was twice the size it is today, with massive cliffs that fell to the seas. The native people who were here hunted mastodons and other massive roaming animals. As the seas began to rise, and the cliffs got sucked into the water, the giant roaming animals were no longer. The native people who hunted on the great plains of Florida became fishermen and farmers. “If I had a time machine and could go back to any period,

it would be to see what people were doing to adapt to those changes,” Ayers-Rigsby says. If the natives could adapt 12,000 years ago, she notes, perhaps we can adapt to the changes we’re seeing today. “Their story shows that people are incredibly resilient. It tells an incredibly optimistic view of humanity’s future.” Thinking back to those prehistoric days in Florida also offers

“Coacoochee is quoted as saying he is made of the sands of Florida,” Backhouse says. “It captures beautifully that Florida was a native land.” South Florida is dotted with spots that indicate the long history of native people. “There are archaeological sites everywhere,” Ayers-Rigsby says. “There is evidence of indigenous people living here for thousands of years. This area is incredibly rich in Native American archaeological history.” Standing tall on the Jupiter Inlet is the town’s most famous site: the iconic red lighthouse built in 1860. Surrounding that structure is land where native people lived for at least 5,000 years. The lighthouse grounds include a Seminole chickee hut constructed in 2009 by then tribal chairman James Billie as a tribute to the history of the local Seminoles and their E.H. SELLARDS

some perspective on just how long native people occupied this area before Europeans arrived, says British-born archaeologist Paul Backhouse. For nearly a decade, Backhouse has served as the Seminole tribal historic preservation officer and director of the 70-acre Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum on Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation located just south of Clewiston. “Florida has been occupied since time immemorial,” Backhouse says. “Colonial history says the Seminoles came late, but their ancestors have lived in Jupiter and Stuart for thousands of years. Tequesta and Seminole are names given by outside forces, and those distinctions given by historians are not necessarily how those groups see themselves.” The Seminole and Miccosukee tribes have eight generations of history passed down by spoken tales. Backhouse likes to emphasize this by repeating a quote from Coacoochee (which translates to “wildcat”), the Seminole leader from the 1800s.

history trading with early settlers. Just a few miles away, off West Indiantown Road, is Loxahatchee River Battlefield Park. In 1838, the U.S. military arrived and attempted to extricate native people, leading to two battles on the banks of the Loxahatchee River—one a clear victory by the Seminoles and the second pushing the tribe deep into the swamps. A nonprofit organization called the Loxahatchee Battlefield Preservationists keeps that history alive today with presentations three times a year, the Ayers-Rigsby excavates a historic trash pit at the next to be held in April. Jupter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area. Stuart’s House of Refuge, built in 1876 for shipwrecked sailors, stands on land once occupied by Native Americans. The hurricanes of 2004 exposed a Native American midden, or shell-covered trash heap, full of detritus of an earlier time. Workers dredging a canal in 1913 to create what’s now Vero Beach began discovering bones nicknamed “Old Vero Man.” The site remains an active dig and is in need of volunteers, offering a chance for amateur historians to see what it’s like to be an archaeologist for a day. In 1979, fossils were first discovered in a sinkhole on what’s now the Charles Deering Estate Park, and archaeologists have since discovered bones of native people dating back 650 years. The park also includes the Cutler Burial Mound, which is believed to include the remains of perhaps 18 native people. The village of Indiantown sits on the site of a Seminole trading post set up by tribal members fleeing south after the First Seminole War. Others first began settling there in the 1890s. Not far from the northern shores of Lake Okeechobee, the Okeechobee Battlefield Historic State Park occupies land where an 1837 Christmas Day battle marked a turning point in the Second Seminole War, with 1,000 government soldiers fighting several hundred Seminole and Miccosukee. The battle is reenacted on the last weekend every February. Located on Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation near Clewiston, the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is among the nation’s most significant museums dedicated to the history of native people. Backhouse says the museum stands as a testament to the tribes. “Some of the most important stories regarding indigenous sovereignty can be seen here in South Florida,” Backhouse says. “The Seminole and Miccosukee tribes did not sign a peace treaty and held on against all odds to stay here in South Florida.” ❖

SPOTLIGHT:

TODAY’S TRIBAL HEROES

“It’s important to realize that indigenous cultures still exist and are very much alive and active today,” Ayers-Rigsby says. There are many natives working hard to preserve the tribal way of life, adds Backhouse, and it’s becoming more and more difficult. Florida’s native tribes have always been under threat from outside forces that hoped to assimilate them or dismantle their culture, and the current threats of climate change and urban encroachment are just as significant. COVID also took a toll, claiming the lives of tribal leader Max Osceola Jr. and Seminole Chief Justice of the Tribal Courts Willie Johns. Here, Backhouse notes two tribal leaders who are working tirelessly to keep Seminole culture alive. Daniel Tommie Seminole Tribe member Daniel Tommie is working to revive the ancient practice of creating dug-out canoes from a single piece of wood. To hone his skills, he began with a three-inch piece of wood and carved it into a canoe shape, then began working his way up to larger canoes. Today, Tommy holds presentations for schoolchildren and community groups, lately via Zoom, demonstrating an art that was nearly lost. Tina Marie Osceola As director of the Seminole Tribal Historic Preservation Office and a tribal judge, Tina Marie Osceola is an advocate for tribal sovereignty. Among her efforts is to reclaim the remains of Seminoles stored in museums all over the world. So far, many of those museums, including the Smithsonian, have refused to return the bones, claiming them as historical relics. Osceola and the Seminoles want to give the remains a proper burial on tribal property, a goal that once again pits outsiders against the unconquered tribe.

n an industry where a banana taped to a wall can sell for $120,000, insiders are used to the ever-changing nuances of the art world. Add the COVID epidemic to an already unpredictable industry and it’s no surprise that the art scene has undergone some significant changes of late, inciting new trends and approaches to creating and collecting art. The pandemic has sparked a return to timelessness and comfort, characteristics that art dealer Mary Ann Cohen, owner of MAC Art Galleries, has always sought in her collections. “I look for pieces that are characteristically different and timeless,” says Cohen. After weathering unpredictable times, she says, people want art that they can connect with and that endures. “In South Florida, there is an attention to nesting. People want to escape to a place that reflects who they really are. We encourage people to find the things they really love and reimagine the world again.” Teresa Klein, owner of Rare Earth Gallery in Stuart, notes several other major trends. “Public art, or street art, has been around for a long time, but it has taken on new meaning and messages,” she says. “The environment has increasingly

become a subject in the art world, with artists exploring everything from recycling to large-scale installations. There is also a renewed interest in the natural world with land art.” Buying trends are also reflecting a renewed desire for past heritage. “The biggest trend is, if it is an important, excellent work of art with a great provenance, there is a buyer immediately,” says Nick Korniloff, director of Art Miami. He points out recent auction results in London, Paris, and New York for works by well-known artists including Van Gogh, Warhol, and Lalanne. “If the artist’s work exudes sophistication and uniqueness along with rarity and prestige, it will be collected at the highest prices.” As South Florida continues to attract more and more fulltime residents from the United States and abroad, the area is fast becoming a hub for collecting. Korniloff rattles off a list of collectors who have called Miami home for decades and who regularly attend the city’s International Art Week to share their private collections.

and Santiago Montoya are all so unique and diverse with their artwork,” he says. Tim Bengel (timbengel.com) is a German artist widely known for his hyper-detailed gold leaf–embellished sand paintings. The 29-year-old has more than a half million followers on Facebook and Instagram, making him one of the most famous artists of his generation. Colombian artist Santiago Montoya’s (santiagomontoya.com) website is emblazoned with the words “It’s not about the money,” a reference to the medium in which he works. Montoya uses money to create his art. The work of Punk Me Tender (punkmetender.com) can be seen at Onessimo Fine Art in Palm Beach Gardens. The mysterious artist is from Los Angeles, but that’s about the only biography you’ll find on him—he likes to keep his identity unknown. But his artwork, which explores freedom through photography layered with vibrant color and mixed media, is highly recognizable. For the opening of MAC Art Galleries’ newest space in Delray Beach, Cohen chose Californian-born artist Frank Arnold (frankarnoldart.com) for the first installation. “There are very few abstract figurative artists,” says Cohen. Arnold’s pieces are labyrinths of symbology, and each piece incorporates the number eight—a number that holds personal significance in the artist’s life.

adopted, which sparked in him a desire to be self-sufficient. “The story of 8 is still partly a mystery to me,” he says. “Eight is me.”) As with just about every other industry, digital technology has impacted art, attracting new collectors. “There is a theory that millennials are much more interested in experiences than possessions, and these types of art certainly satisfy that notion,” says Klein. Still, even insiders are trying to figure out where some forms of digital art fit into the industry. NFTs, or “non-fungible tokens,” are one new art trend that is leaving a lot of people scratching their heads. Similar to original works of art in the physical form, NFTs are one-ofa-kind pieces of art in digital form—and collectors are already paying top dollar for them. Last March, Christie’s sold a collage from Beeple (also known as Mike Winkelman), a graphic designer from South Carolina who creates a variety of digital artwork, for $69 million. At MartinArts, Turrell welcomes the shift to digital art. “It’s been fascinating to watch the rise of digital,” she says. “That one word hardly describes the many aspects of the art form.” Like most art, digital art can best be understood by visiting installations. Says Turrell: “Seeing a Jennifer Steinkamp installation at the Clark Art Institute in Massachusetts really opened

my eyes to how beautiful digital art can be.” Steinkamp is known for using video and new media to explore ideas about space, motion, and perception. In the vast world of art, maybe a banana stuck to a wall isn’t such an oddity after all. “It’s the antics of the art world—there’s a certain tongue in cheek sometimes,” says Cohen. “But it all brings attention to the art world, which is a good thing.” Korniloff chalks it up to the somewhat confusing industry he’s so fond of: “I have been in the art world for over 25 years, and there is plenty I don’t understand. But that is really what it is all about. I don’t judge, but I do know what is for me and what is not. I prefer my bananas in my cereal!” ❖

A first-class law firm that is here to help you.

73 S.W. Flagler Ave. Stuart 772.444.7000 kibbeylaw.com

Barbara Kibbey is partner and owner of the law firm Kibbey | Wagner. She runs the practice with her husband, Jordan R. Wagner, Esq. Kibbey’s focus is on criminal defense cases while Wagner’s focus is personal injury. Kibbey started out right here on the Treasure Coast, where she graduated from Martin County High School. She went on to earn her bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida and her law degree from the University of Miami. Kibbey began her legal career as a public defender locally in the 19th Judicial Circuit, where she was exposed to a wide variety of criminal cases, including firstdegree felonies, juvenile offenses, and misdemeanor charges. She left the public defender’s office to start her own firm, The Law Office of Barbara Kibbey, and shortly thereafter began the firm Kibbey | Wagner with her

husband. Kibbey has been named one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association. She has also been named one of the Top 40 Lawyers Under the Age of 40 by Superlawyers Magazine in the State of Florida four years in a row. Last year, she fulfilled a dream when she served as president of the Martin County Bar Association. It was a tremendous honor for Kibbey to be nominated by her peers to serve in such a prestigious position. Most important, Kibbey is a devoted and caring mother to her two children. They are her pride and joy. She loves spending every free moment she can with them, going to the beach, horseback riding, and attending their baseball games and ballet recitals. Barbara feels incredibly blessed to be able to work and raise her family in the town where she grew up.
