Theatre Jacksonville Presents Alabama Story, Opening March 8

On March 8, the smart and sensitive play Alabama Story opens at  Theatre Jacksonville, bringing to life a Civil Rights-era tale about thorny racial issues, inspired by true events in 1959 Montgomery, Alabama. Alabama Story provides a clever juxtaposition of thought-provoking material — the potential banning of a children’s book about the marriage between a black and a white rabbit contrasted with the story of a childhood friendship between a Black man and a woman of White privilege.

“We knew we had to bring this amazing play to Jacksonville to provide a cautionary tale that these same issues – documented here from the late 1950s – are sadly still plaguing us today,” said Theatre Jacksonville Executive Director Sarah Boone, who remembers reading the very same children’s book as a child. “The topics of book banning and race relations are still making headlines and causing divisions. It is our ultimate hope that theater can bring people together to examine what divides us and help us recognize those things that we all have in common – the best of humanity.”

Directed by Amy Love, Alabama Story will run from Friday, March 8 through Sunday, March 24. All evening shows will be at 7:30 p.m., and there will be two Sunday matinees on March 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets are included with Gold All-Access Season Membership and Silver Season Subscription packages. Bronze single tickets are $31.

Following Alabama Story, the final two productions of the Mainstage 104th season will include:

¨     Picasso at the Lapin Agile, opening April 19 – In this absurdist comedy written by Steve Martin (yes, THAT Steve Martin), Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet in a Parisian café in 1904, just before the Theory of Relativity and Cubism transformed the science and art worlds, respectively. With ridiculously engaging merriment, the two spar with each other and café regulars about art, science, inspiration, love and the promise of the 20th century (even including a visitor time-warped in from a later era).

¨     SHOUT! The Mod Musical, opening June 7 – With its irresistible blend of hip-swiveling hits, far-out fashions and fab dance moves, this groovy musical takes audiences back to the music style and freedom of the 1960s through five gals coming of age during the dawning liberation of women and glorious days that made England swing. With such international favorites as “To Sir With Love,” “Downtown,” “Son of a Preacher Man” and “Goldfinger,” this smash hit is entertaining and downright fun.

The season will also include quarterly presentations of Stories on Stage. The next offering in the series will be Sunday, March 3.

*Second Saturday Arts Farmers Market

Variety of vendors. Crafts, plants, teas, honey, household items, bath products, food, clothing, soap, jewelry, bird houses, jams and jellies, breads, cookies, and so much more!

Family and pet friendly!!!!

Our vendors donate a portion of their sales to the church rather than the church charge a specific amount for their vendor spot. Those donations go towards the outreach programs of the church. Three of the local outreach programs include the Mandarin Food Bank, our own preschool, and Florida Christian Center on Edgewood. So, when you shop at our market you not only help the small business owners but the community as well!!!! Bonus!!!!

We will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Mandarin Food Bank if you would like to donate. A collection bin will be by the front door of the church.

There are currently no openings for new vendors. Anyone offering a spot to someone does not have the authority and is attempting to scam people. Our vendors know the process and will reach out to the correct people for questions.

*North Beaches Art Walk

The best little art walk in town, for 14+ years, established in 2007.

In loving memory of our founding members:
Alice M. Gartland
January 27, 1922 – May 6, 2021

Linda H. Stewart
October 28, 1957 -August 15, 2021

The North Beaches Art Walk got its start in 2007 when Beaches art-industry professionals JoAnne Adams, Alice Gartland and Linda Stewart came together in hopes of recreating the popular art walk atmosphere of Downtown. Through their nurturing and dedication, the event grew considerably. And on every third Thursday of the month, the streets of the Beaches Town Center erupt with creativity. What was once a small pool of carefully selected artists has now become a bubbling ocean of art, a place where woodworkers commingle with mixed media designers and musicians play into the night. Welcoming to locals and out-of-towners alike, to say it’s a communal experience.

It is a free event held the third Thursday of each month from 5 to 9 pm. Featuring many local visual artists and live performers, NBAW is held in Beaches Town Center-where Atlantic Blvd meets the Ocean. The overall mission of Art Walk is to expose the community to the vast number of local Artists right here at the Beaches. Talent from all over Jacksonville shows at the North Beaches Art Walk. With over 50+ participating artists, NBAW is a diverse art destination and shopping experience for the entire family. Local venues in Beaches Town Center set the backdrop for this great monthly destination and community gathering.

The North Beaches Art Walk is a monthly event orchestrated by the North Beaches Art Walk Association, a nonprofit organization 501 (c)(3) based in Atlantic Beach, FL. Since its beginning in October of 2007, the North Beaches Art Walk has continued to receive positive support from the community and has an ever-growing list of participating merchants and artists.

Looking forward to seeing you!

PAStA Fine Art Gallery Offers Miniature Glass Postcard Workshop

The Professional Artists of St. Augustine (PAStA) Fine Art Gallery, of 214 Charlotte Street, St. Augustine, announce an art glass discussion and workshop featuring their two renowned glass artists, Marlene Zullig and Rose Hawley.

The workshop will be held Tuesday, March 26th at the gallery on 214 Charlotte Street in downtown St. Augustine. The workshop will be from 9 a.m. to noon and is limited to 6 students. The cost is $50 and includes all taxes, fees, and materials. Sign up at www.pastagalleryart.com/events.

Students will learn about art glass, its history, influences, and processes. Guided by experts Rose and Marlene, the class create and fire a wearable 1.5” x 2” glass postcard of St. Augustine or any subject matter of their choice. The wearable art will be placed on either a necklace bail or a pin clasp.

Marlene Zullig is a local and international award-winning artist who has been working with stained glass and metal for over 35 years. Marlene’s work is an eclectic mix of functional art, such as mosaic mirrors, vessels, jewelry, and lamps and one-of-a-kind stained-glass windows, panels, mosaic wall art, and fused glass pieces. Her work reflects a sense of eminent care and attention to detail from the hand-cut, high-quality stained glass that she uses to create her art to the handmade frames she makes to fit each of her custom pieces. Marlene’s work graces homes and businesses both here and abroad.

\Rose Hawley’s career in glass art was serendipitous. Starting off making pottery, she began to melt wine bottles in her ceramic kiln at the suggestion of a colleague. After slumping over 200,000 wine bottles sold nationwide as hanging cheeseboards, the glass art bug had firmly bitten Rose. She began her art glass education through frequent trips to Bullseye Glass Factory in Portland, Oregon, and traveled extensively throughout North America and Europe, visiting and collaborating with experimental glass artists. As a member of PAStA Fine Art Gallery Rose’s glass vessels, sculptures and jewelry reflect her love of nature and the coastal lifestyle.

Stay up to date with all that is happening at PAStA by visiting the website, Facebook, or Instagram page. Join our email list for the latest information about our artists.
