Our Feature Gallery presents
A feast for your eyes! The Art Gallery of Viera announces their Edibles show, an art exhibit featuring work with one common theme – food. The opening reception will be on June 13 and run till July 5th. Not only is this an art show, but it is also a food drive. Outside artists were invited to participate alongside our members in exchange for a grocery donation. So come, enjoy the night with us, and bring an item of food to donate to help feed our local community.
Meet the artists, observe a live artist Demo, enter to win a piece of art by Ed Carlson, and enjoy some light refreshments. All free and open to the public.
Our Art Education Center presents
Kid's Classes Coming to Art Gallery of Viera for June and July
Art Gallery of Viera is happy to announce that in addition to our regular children's class on Saturday mornings, Art Gallery of Viera is having special summer sessions for kids on every Thursday morning and afternoon throughout June and July as well as having a six-week "Heroes" session on Friday afternoons. There are over 24 different classes to choose from! For details, please go to www.artgalleryofviera.com, or stop by the gallery for a detailed description of each class.
Our Featured Artist
Jaymee Weinreich
Playing Horses II
Art Gallery of Viera is pleased to present Jaymee Weinreich as the featured artist for June. The opening reception of the Edibles Show at the Art Gallery of Viera will be June 13, 2015 from 5:30-8 pm, and will also feature the beautiful and spiritual art of member artist, Jaymee Weinreich.
Educated at Florida International University with a Bachelor's of Fine Art, Jaymee work's in a number of mediums including oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor and pencil. Her paintings often include people, rainforest and island environments and fantasy.

Throughout her work, Jaymee's intention is to express beauty in a spiritual sense. She says, "With all the problems in the world and in our daily living we have a tendency to forget how to enjoy each other, nature and the wonder of life in general. For example, I try to communicate the feeling you get when walking through a forest or swimming in an ocean or the feeling of being alone on a beach with just your thoughts. In this way, people do connect to my work."

Jaymee, being from a colorful island environment, color plays an important role in her pictures. Naturally her palette has evolved into a vibrant dialogue of color, as vibrant as the places she has lived and experienced.
Our Artists
Local metal sculptor Walt Mendenhall and member of the Art Gallery of Viera, now has some of his work on display at the Pizza Gallery in the Avenues. He is showing some of his newer tropical fish designs and other yard art type sculptures. Please stop by for a pizza and look at all the art!
Ruth Ann Alibrando, artificial floral artist and Director of Inventory at the Art Gallery of Viera has volunteered her floral services to provide floral arrangements for the podium in her church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, on Fiske Blvd in Rockledge. She will exchange them on a bimonthly basis.
Sue Kennicott received 4th place in The International art competition "Flowers of Spring" with Petal Fancy
The Dance by Sheryl Hughes was accepted for the SPRING NOAPS INTERNATIONAL ON-LINE Exhibit. This painting took 1st place at the Okeeheelee Nature Center Art Show on May 1st,

The New Graduate

                                                     
Hello, Stampers!

This post seemed to take on a life of its own as soon as I began typing.  I know many of you are attending graduations at this time of year.  What an exciting time for all.  For all of the parents that feel like "We did it!" and the teachers that helped so many students along for so many years, I say "Thank you and bless you for all that you have invested in these young people.  It's not always easy being a good parent or a good teacher.  There are so many decisions to make day to day.  I've always said that life is a series of pop quizzes and is it ever so!!
I have to admit feeling lonely for the Abby, the sweet little curly-haired girl, the little violinist, the soccer girl, the "kid-nurse" on the soccer field, the volleyball player and coach, the angel in the Christmas play, the little Daisy and Brownie, the Jessie costume and our Babapaloozas.  I wouldn't even mind a daylong viewing of "Jungle Book" or "Lion King" again.  In fact, I'd love to go back and re-live a day with each of those little girls and young ladies. But, time marches on and we hope that you, too, look to the future with great hope.


Congratulations, Abigail Elisabeth Cordrey.  We wish you the very best of life and success.  Much love to you, dear girl!






A Big "Thank You"!


Hello, Stampers!

Yes, you did it!  Because of your loyalty and support, I have achieved the promotion to Manager!  Being a goal-oriented person, I decided nearly a year ago to make that promotion my goal.  Thanks to you it has happened.  Whether you came to a class, sent me an order, joined my team or recruited another demo, you did this!!  I am very grateful to you.

I'm not sure what kind of incentives that Stampin' Up has for us when the new Idea Book is released, but I would like to offer you the following gifts as a thank you.


A--Between June 2 and June 20, with each $40 order, you can choose one of the following:

  • A ribbon sampler that features 1 yard each of all of the ne In-Color Sheer Ribbons.  (See one of them pictured above.) Or..
  • A mini-sampler of either the new Bohemian Designer Series Paper (DSP) or the English Garden DSP.  (Sampler is comprised of 12 6x6" sheets.)  Or....
  • Your choice of Pearls, Rhinestones or the new Metal Rimmed Pearls.
You may either order on my Stampin' Up Website or email your order to me.  ***Important*** Please email your free gift choice to me as this is my gift to you and I'll get it right out to you.

B--Between June 2 and June 20, bring a new team member on board and YOU will receive your choice of the Blended Bloom wood-mounted stamp (135906) or All Boxed Up clear-mount stamp set (139340).


Well, now what does a goal-oriented gal do?  Sr. Manager is not THAT much of a stretch, is it?  :-)

Thank you again and Happy Stampin'!!

This Week's Cards at the Art Gallery of Viera--A Fabulous Shoe and a Pastoral Scene

Hi, Stampers!

What a lovely day, yesterday, at the AGOV!  We heat embossed a beautiful shoe image and used the Work of Art stamps to create a pretty background for our images on the second card.  So sad that the shoe stamp is retired but it is definitely one that's a keeper for me!!



I'm looking forward to repeating these pretties at Thursday's Titusville Art League class.

Now I'm off to make a banner for our granddaughter's graduation cake table.  She is graduating from high school in Oviedo and will attend Seminole State CC starting the second summer term.  Congratulations, Abby!!  We Love You & Wish You the Very Best!!!!


Happy Stampin'!!
