DELRAY BEACH, FL – The nonprofit cultural arts and education-based Milagro Center is happy to announce the opening of the “LOVE” exhibit at its in-house BLUEPRINT Gallery. The BLUEPRINT Gallery is partnering with the oldest professional arts organization for women in the United States, The National League of American Pen Women, to celebrate love. The exhibit, which runs through April 1, 2016, will showcase work from several female artists of the National League of American Pen Women. The LOVE exhibit Opening Reception takes place just in time for Valentine’s Day on Friday, Feb. 12, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., and features the creative works of the talented women of the Boca Raton branch. The evening will also feature handmade crafts and chocolates by local artisans, available for sale during the event. Guests will enjoy light bites, wine and desserts. This visual and performing arts event is an opportunity for Milagro Center’s supporters, friends and art enthusiasts to take part in the joy and creativity the center provides daily to the 80 children and teens it serves in its afterschool and summer camp programs. To attend the free reception, contact Cultural Arts Director Nicole Escalera at nescalera@ milagrocenter.org. THE BLUEPRINT Gallery at Milagro Center is furthering the organization’s mission to enrich the lives of undervalued children through continual exposure to cultural arts. It is Milagro’s intention to work with emerging and established artists in the community and provide an avenue to showcase their work while also supporting Milagro Center. Exhibiting artists will donate a minimum of 25 percent of art sales to Milagro Center and will be invited to speak with Milagro Center’s STARS (children in grades K-5), and middle and high-school teens about their career as an artist. They’ll also lead an artist workshop. “Our beautiful BLUEPRINT Gallery is an exciting venue that further integrates art into our Delray Beach community and provides local artists with a new opportunity to exhibit, promote, and sell their art,” stated Barbara Stark, Milagro Center President and CEO. “As an additional bonus, Milagro Center students will participate in high-quality art classes and workshops taught by these exhibiting artists that will inspire these children while providing fun and educational art experiences. We welcome the community at large to attend the Opening Reception of our fifth exhibit of the 2015-2016 year and enjoy the fine ensemble of our artists. The experience is sure to touch your heart.” THE BLUEPRINT Gallery at Milagro Center hosts six gallery events each year, including “(On the) Horizon – Emerging Artists,” opening April 8, 2016. Artists interested in participating in future exhibits should contact Escalera at (561) 279-2970 for consideration.
