August is a quiet month for the Art Center, with the primary focus on maintenance and planning for the full schedule of events that begin in September with the first art exhibition of the year and a new play opening on the theater stage.
Registration is also underway for fall classes in drawing, acrylic painting and watercolor. Anyone interested should call 352-746-7606 for information and registration or go to the Art Center website at artcenterofcitruscounty.org.
The demonstrator for the Friday, Aug. 14, meeting of the Citrus Watercolor Club will be Ocala artist Ted Kloski.
Kloski has an impressive background in Abstract Expressionism; a pursuit that began in the early 1960s when he studied art at the University of California, Berkeley, and subsequently graduated with a Master of Arts degree. He paints primarily in acrylic and oil media.
Dragon Boat Races will return to Lake Hernando with a Nov. 13 kickoff party and concert at the lakeside park in Hernando, then race day on Nov. 14.
Now’s a good time to pull a team together and support the event and the community. This regional event hosts teams from all over Florida and the Southeast, but is also supported by community teams made up of businesses, clubs and groups of friends and neighbors.
Not too many places in Citrus County are decked out in black lights every Friday and Saturday night.
