The Saint Lucia Cultural Alliance will host Art Walk on November 19, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. This month’s event will be even more festive than usual, as the event will honor 2nd Street Art’s first anniversary. Two exhibitions will also begin during Art Walk: âGrunge & Glamorâ at the Alliance Gallery and âOpulenceâ at the Ohana Group Gallery.
In honor of their first anniversary, 2nd Street Art will be offering a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Treasure Coast Food Bank, live art demonstrations and freebies at the gallery (131 N 2nd Street, Suite B). Fairy Patricia with KekeVanB’s original fairy hair will be available for reservations at 2nd Street Art from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., with music from Bruce Bernstein’s Saxophone Expressions live from 5 to 8 p.m.
Art Walk, which takes place on the third Friday of each month, brings together local artists, musicians, galleries and local businesses for an evening of music, live painting and shopping in downtown Fort Pierce. Guests will enjoy a variety of live music, including soulful duo Southern Soul Society and classical guitarist Joette Giorgis.
The two new exhibitions of the Cultural Alliance of Saint Lucia, âGrunge & Glamorâ at the Alliance Gallery and âOpulenceâ at the Ohana Group Gallery, will be previewed with a wine reception on November 19 and will be visible until January 17..
âWe really run the gamut of the artistic spectrum, from the gorgeous and decadent pieces on display in ‘Opulence’, to fashion presented by designer Nfr Ra, to eclectic paintings and mixed media featuring 3D elements in ‘Grunge & Glamor’, says Cultural Jake Sanders, Alliance’s Community Engagement Officer. âI don’t remember ever seeing anything like this in St. Lucie County, and we are thrilled to continue to move forward into new artistic territory with the phenomenal work of our members constantly growing. “
