President's Musings 2020 and Beyond

As we begin a new decade, SRAC is in excellent position to move forward, which is political speak meaning our club is going to get gooder and gooder!  I see us becoming more interconnected with other non-profits; forging symbiotic relationships with organizations like Pelican Island Preservation Society, Sebastian Fine Art and Music Festival, Brevard Cultural Alliance, and the King Center to name a few.  We already have many fine venues for public display of our art work like City Hall, North County Library, Sebastian Hospital, Riverview Coffee, Tea & Books, Crab-E-Bills and more.  As our Gallery becomes better known in our community, we will be able to sell more of our members’ work in house.  We can also plan to have well known artists like Frits Van Eden, come for an event that features his awesome work.

 

We have the tools to really shine as a vibrant club and a welcoming beacon to those who value the arts here on the Treasure Coast.  What are those tools you ask?  YOU Are!  Each member artist that contributes their time and talents to SRAC is a vital part of our organization.  As each club member chooses a committee and lends a hand, the work gets easier for us all.  We have no requirement for endless hours of volunteer work before showing your work.  We have no limits on how many artists can set up in Riverview Park.  We do, however, have some requirements which are not burdensome.  First and foremost, we are an ART Club and your work must meet a certain standard.  You must get your work juried in.  Our jury committee meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month after our business meeting.  Second, you must apply for a Florida Sales tax certificate if you plan to sell your work.  For our club to avoid any liability issues with the City or State, this is imperative.  The process is relatively simple and has no cost.  Simply go on line to the Florida Dept of Revenue website and follow the prompts or call Tallahassee, and they will send you out a DR 1 form, or you can go to the local office in Ft. Pierce and come home with one the same day!  Third, simply sign up for the venues where you wish to display your work.  If it is at a location like City Hall or the Hospital, you will bring your work on the day of the change out.  If you want to show your art work in Riverview Park, just sign up for the show and come early, around 7:30 am to set up your own tent, or display rack.  If you have no way of displaying your work, the club has A frames and display racks for as little as $10 to rent.

 

As always, every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, club members are encouraged to come in and socialize and paint with other members in the community room.  Classes are over at noon, so please don’t come early as the teachers need the room in the mornings.  Speaking of classes, we have classes galore to learn new techniques with watercolors, acrylics or mixed media.  Great classes, Great teachers and only $15.00 for club members!  It just gets gooder and gooder!  

 

Here’s to a Stress Free Prosperous New Year for the Sebastian River Art Club now entering our 83rd Year!
