New works by Regan Kenyon will be featured during January at the Center for Spiritual Care in Vero Beach. The exhibition, which opens with a 5 p.m. artist’s reception Friday, Jan.5, will run through Monday, Jan. 29.  The Center is located at 1550 24th St., two blocks north of Vero’s Main Library.

Kenyon’s show, titled “The Art of Regan: A Soulful Search,” will feature a variety of abstract expressionist works.

Kenyon, whose Ph.D. comes from Harvard, amassed the equivalent of a graduate degree in world art history through in-depth studies of the collections of national museums in nearly 100 countries over the course of his business career.  Locally, he has worked with Regina Stark and Deborah Gooch.  He won second place honors at the 2017 Backus Museum spring invitational.

Exhibit runs through January 29th.  Please call for hours or an appointment to view.

Consenting To God with Fr. Terry Ryan, CSP

Saturdays, February 17th & 24th from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The receptive contemplative practice can be summed up in two parts: Consent to God's Presence and Surrender to God's Action.  Centering Prayer can act like a key to the door that opens to an interior silence where god is at work.  The attitude is receptivity; let God do the work of the prayer.  We have an innate capacity for interior silence and Centering Prayer can awaken us to this.

Fr. Ryan has lived for the past thirteen summers at Snowmass Trappist Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado.  This is also the home of Fr. Thomas Keating, OSCO, who has written extensively on the spiritual journey of meditation and centering prayer.  Thomas in ninety four years old and no longer travels.

Please RSVP for this program 772-567-1233.  There is no charge,  free will offerings are welcome.  Refreshments will be served.

Pysanky Workshop with Leslie Ann Curry

Saturday, March 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter Egg decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist or 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!  

A Cost of this workshop including lunch and materials is $50.00.  The kistka and wax are yours to take home.  Make checks payable to Center for Spiritual Care and mail to 1550 24th Street, Vero Beach, FL  32960 or register with Paypal (button below).
