The St. Johns Cultural Council is forming a five person "ACH Marketing Team" to attend the NAMP Conference this November in Atlanta.
The goal is to have a cross section of St. Johns County ACH leaders representing the Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Literary Arts, Festivals, and Museums join Cultural Council staff and Shepherd Agency staff in learning the "best practices" in arts and culture advertising and marketing. Following the conference, the ACH Marketing Team will hold one or more workshops to share the learning and tools with the other members of the ACH community.
As part of the Cultural Council’s 2015 Marketing Plan to enhance the skills of ACH groups, the Tourist Development Council will fund the registration fees of $450 per person (early bird deadline is August 29). Hotel and travel will be each team member's responsibility.
There are a number of travel options available. Car pooling and The Big Red Bus (from Jacksonville) are low cast options to air travel.

Lovers of exciting young artists are invited to the new Emerging Artists Show at Plum Gallery beginning on September 5th during the First Friday Art Walk. Plum is proud to be hosting the works of these new talents: Brianna Angelakis, Johanna Falzone, Katie Evens, Kiara Amaris and Bianca Borghi.
Angelakis says “ In literature, the female is often correlated with the wildness of nature. Flowers, in particular, often represent the female because of their various attributes ranging from beauty to innocence to sensuality to strength. Through the experimentation of the female figure surrounded by flowers, my oil paintings play with the idea of the flower and its relationship to the female as these women remain physically immersed in entirely floral environments.” She has been in Florida since her teens and was awarded several honors while at Flagler College including graduating summa cum laude while earning her B.F.A. She is currently working on her M.F.A. in Gainesville.
