George Paxton and Joel Johnson "People and Places" Exhibit

New works by George Paxton and Joel Johnson will be featured during March at the Center for Spiritual Care in Vero Beach. The exhibition, which opens with a 5 p.m. artist’s reception Friday, Mar. 2, will run through Monday, Apr. 2.  The Center is located at 1550 24thSt., two blocks north of Vero’s Main Library.

The two-man show, titled “People and Places,” will feature Paxton's sculptures and Johnson's watercolors.  Both are nationally recognized for their artistic achievements. 

“These artists each have a unique vision that sets them apart,” says Center arts coordinator Warren Obluck.  “Paxton ranks right up there with the best figurative sculptors in the country and Johnson is one of the most highly regarded water colorists working today.”

Paxton received his training at the Art Students League and the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York, the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Florence Academy of Art in Italy.  Johnson's MFA is from Utah State.  He has conducted painting workshops throughout the United States and Italy and won numerous awards.  He recently was awarded the John Singer Sargent award of special merit by the Transparent Watercolor Society.

Exhibit Opening Reception Friday, March 2 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Pysanky with Leslie Ann Curry

Saturday, March 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written in the wax-resist method of batik with a stylus in beeswax.  Many other eastern European ethnic groups decorate eggs using wax resist for Easter as well.

Using authentic tools, wax, dyes and spiritual symbols, we will create artful eggs to celebrate the fertility and new life that Easter brings.  Set this time aside for yourself to relax and enjoy this ancient Lenten custom!

Cost of this workshop including lunch and all materials is $50.00.  There is a slight discount on gently used equipment, please call for details.  Register below or make your check out to Center for Spiritual Care, 1550 24th Street, Vero Beach, FL 32960.
