CLEARWATER - Clearwater Arts Alliance announces the inaugural season of Pianos in Pinellas, Nov. 25-Dec. 31. Eleven upright painted pianos are placed in 11 prominent locations throughout Pinellas for the public to enjoy the art and play the pianos.

The pianos were donated by Randy’s Wholesale Pianos and artistically painted in a variety of styles depicting life in our community. Artists include, Agnes Black, Steven Spathelf, Ya La’Ford, Beth Warmath and the students of Pinellas Primary Academy, Ann Feldshue, Junior Polo, Liz Smith, Don Scali, Robert Daltry, Don Gillepie, June Harben, Sylvia Shanahan, and Lizbeth Graham.

The 11 pianos were sponsored and hosted by local art supporters, who view this project as an ideal catalyst to elevate our community as an Arts and Cultural friendly region and to promote cultural tourism throughout the area.

The public art pianos will also become public music entities and played by visitors and residents of Pinellas.

“This project has really created a huge buzz as it appeals to art lovers and musicians alike,” said Colin Bissett, project director. “We’re hoping for an enormous turnout especially during this festive season with choirs, impersonators, jazz jams, blues and more, the list is only limited by one’s imagination.”

TREASURE ISLAND - The Treasure Island Art Guild has opened its 2014 Holiday Show at the Treasure Island Community Center, which will run through Wednesday, Jan. 7 featuring the work of Bruce Fallender, Carolyn Louden, Adela Mike, Arlene Shoemaker, and Patricia Zill.

The creative talent of abstract artist Fallender engages the viewer in “Aftermath,” a charcoal rendering of a solemn moment of devastation, where the focal point of an orb could translate into a symbol that suggests that “in every end is a beginning.” Mixed media electrifies jostling “Polo Ponies” contrasted by a “Seaweed Symphony” of radiant hues.

“Painting provides clarity for the soul” is the mantra that sparks the work of basically self-taught acrylic artist Louden, as evidenced in pure patterns of form, order, and color in “Blue Marble” and “Red Diamond.” “Will Someone Please Let Me Out” displays an excellent composition that narrates the honesty and helplessness of its main character.

ST. PETERSBURG - A new collection is currently on display in the Hancock Bank Presents Highlights from our Permanent Collection section on the third floor of the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S.

This exhibit tells the story of Erich and Malvine Rosengarten (née Langberg). Erich grew up in a small town in Germany, and Malvine in Austria. Both escaped to Shanghai with their families when they were only teenagers. There they met and eventually married. The exhibit outlines their lives before the war, through their experience in China and their eventual emigration to the United States.

The collection was recently donated by Susan Fader (née Rosengarten), the daughter of Erich and Malvine. Incredible artifacts like her parents’ Chinese marriage certificate, pre-war objects, documents that aided the couple in their escape to Shanghai from Nazi occupied Europe, and objects from the Jewish ghetto will be on display.
