Events at the new Beaux Arts in Clearwater
We have had a great time since opening night setting the Guinness world’s record for largest movie camera collection inc. Hollywood props from Liz Taylor’s “Cleopatra”, Boris Karlof. & Bela Lugosi-even
Gumby and “Rocket Girl”. Lots of fun for all and even a film festival!
Dec.4th’s show “Dissection” was a full house and much fun featuring 21 artists, musicians and poets with a great crowd enjoying themselves immensely and we managed to recaptue the sense of “family” that the orignal Beaux Arts had. No one wanted it to end – artists and crowd alike. “Cirque du Surreal” opens Jan.3rd-8th.

Opening Friday, December 4 – 709 South Missouri Ave., Clearwater, Florida.
Beaux Arts exists to foster an inclusive art culture that incorporates a cross-pollination of art, music, film, writing, sound and performance. In providing a platform for these different media to co-exist in dialogue and without hierarchy, Beaux Arts encourages experimentation and risk taking in the pursuit of excellence in contemporary art practice
Artists, photographers, film makers, musician and performers of any and all art forms are encouraged to contact us with examples of their work for inclusion in future events to be hosted at our exciting new contemporary exhibition space and cultural events center in Clearwater Florida

Listen to local Tampa Bay musicians online
There are two local music outlets that Beaux Arts people might check out.
www.mellowmelodies.com lists local venues and concerts, house parties, etc. where some Beaux Arts people are playing at. There is a lot of local info at this site.
www.musictampabay.com is a local internet radio show which plays local musicians on a rotating basis. They utilize ‘Shoutcast’ or ‘Windows Media’. This writers computer system is so bad that I cannot get either, so I have not specifically heard the music.
The musictampabay.com radio music library includes former Beaux Arts people (the number after the name is how many songs the artist has in the library); Carl Wade and Barbara Schaeffer-1, Donna Klein-2, Jak Kelly-3-, Jeff O’Kelly-3, Joy Katzen-Guthrie-1, Jules-2, Paul J. Watkins-2, Ronnie Elliot-1, Sheila Kirsten-Hughes-4.
Jak Kelly’s song ‘Winter Moon’ was number 20 of 100 top songs of 2008 as compiled by the internet radio station that plays only Tampa Bay musicians.
This writer had to go directly to http://www.musictampabay.com because the connection from mellowmelodies did not work on my anemic computer.
I hope this encourages more Beaux Arts people to get out and play their music.
Due to a new interest in the film history of Beaux Arts we may open a new blog soon with that in mind. Stay Tuned.
