DUNEDIN - Although those with triskaidekaphobia may disagree, the idea that the number 13 is unlucky doesn’t apply in every situation. That is certainly true for organizers of Wearable ART 13, this year’s incarnation of the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s annual art-meets-fashion extravaganza.

Wearable ART 13 will take place Saturday, Aug. 26, at the center, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin. The event will get underway with a pre-party at 7 p.m. The runway show will start at 8:30 p.m. and will be followed by an after-show party.

Seats range from $55 to $95.

PINELLAS PARK - As a child growing up on a Kansas farm, Nancy Lauby drew every chance she could get.

Animals on the farm. The Midwestern landscape. All of it was fodder for her young artistic vision.

So it’s no surprise that today, decades later, as an artist she’s drawn to painting realistic nature scenes and wildlife.

“I have always been drawn to the nature and wildlife,” she said. “I really do connect that with growing up in the country.”

PINELLAS PARK - Like many children, artist Robert Riedel always enjoyed drawing. Those early pieces were similar to “what any kid would draw,” though he said, “wonky robots and animals.”

But there are two distinct moments he recalls where art became something more for him.

Growing up in California, he was constantly moving around due to his parents’ separation. But one summer, when he was around 10 years old, he found himself briefly attending a local Boys & Girls Club. The club had a full art room, where the instructor was a professional artist, the first one he ever met.

ST. PETERSBURG - The Chihuly Collection presented by Morean Arts Center recently announced the launch of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

The program provides families an opportunity to enjoy the nation’s cultural heritage and learn more about their community, especially after a military move. A list of participating museums is available at arts.­gov/b­luest­armus­eums.

“We recognize the need to participate in such a great program in support of military families and all the sacrifices these families make,” said CFO of the Morean Arts Center Roger Ross. “This is our way of continuing to say, ‘Thank you.’”

PINELLAS PARK - Ever since joining the Pinellas Park Arts Society nearly seven years ago, Terri Mills has devoted much of her free time to the organization. In fact, she refers to herself as

“Richard’s left arm.” This reference is to longtime PPAS president Richard Jansen, who lives in St. Pete Beach.

Mills lives just a few blocks from Park Station, which the PPAS calls home, though. So it makes more sense for her to assist with day-to-day operations, from receiving and hanging submissions to the group’s monthly contests to picking up marketing materials.
