Friday Weekend Edition

"Lately, I need my art more for my own sanity and I hope that resonates with viewers."

- Linda Richichi, Local Painter and Artist

[New Gallery Show]  530 Burns Assembles a Collection for Calmness
Andrew Fabian, andrew.fabian@srqme.com

Anxieties are high, our nervous systems the busy thoroughfares of fear, tension and worry. In the time of COVID, art has taken on a new dimension and shifted into a higher purpose necessitated by these heightened emotions. And at 530 Burns Gallery, that new purpose is to sedate the spirit.

As part of a new exhibition called Joy and Serenity: Paintings of Peace, curator Molly Lindberg has assembled works from three artists that she hopes can offer a soothing respite from the noise.

Linda Richichi is one of those artists. Her work is bright and cheerful, her technique delicate and soft. With the fluffy white clouds that feature prominently in many of her landscape paintings, the viewer is invited to linger and admire the view. “My art always tends towards feelings of peace,” she says, “my colors are usually serene and soft.” Though this might characterize the tone of her art in general, the current anxiety of the pandemic has made her sensibilities all the more acute. “Lately, I need my art more for my own sanity,” she says, “and I hope that resonates with viewers.”

Another featured artist is Katie Cassidy. Her abstract work gives the impression of a dreamlike landscape, with strokes and colors that evoke shifting waters, sands or morning light. Like Richichi, Cassidy also felt as though her art took on greater therapeutic significance in her own well-being. “When the whole pandemic started, I didn’t paint for 3 weeks,” says Cassidy, “and that’s the longest I’ve ever gone without painting.” Eventually, she began to miss the canvas like she would an old friend, craving the sense of calm inspired by the familiar pursuit of capturing a moment of beauty. “When Molly gave me the theme for the exhibition, I thought it was just the perfect time,” says Cassidy.

When seen all together, the collection of works forms a synergy of calmness, a series of much needed snap shots of idyll.

The exhibition runs through September 8th, with gallery viewings available Monday through Saturday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Private appointments are available by request.

[Recognition]  Youth Photographer Voted People’s Choice

Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast and presenting sponsor Elizabeth Moore announce the People’s Choice winners for their inaugural Summer Photo Contest exhibit. Eleven-year-old Marley Smith received the top honor of People’s Choice Best-in-Show for her photograph titled Falcon Fury. Heading into sixth grade at Babcock Neighborhood School in Charlotte County, Smith lists photography, nature, and art as her passions, making this competition the perfect opportunity to show her skills. “I love nature photography because it’s fun to go outside and get out of the house,” says Smith. “I like taking photos that are close-up, sharp and full of natural light. Thank you Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast for the great opportunity!” 

“Engaging youth and connecting them to the beauty of our natural world is a central component in Conservation Foundation’s work,” says Conservation Foundation president Christine Johnson.

[Breakthrough]  Manatee Memorial, First Hospital on the Florida West Coast to Implant the Next-Generation WATCHMAN FLX™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure

Manatee Memorial Hospital became the first hospital on the Florida West Coast to offer patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) an alternative to long-term blood thinners with the next-generation WATCHMAN FLX™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Implant. A female patient, age 73 received the first WATCHMAN FLX Implant on August 18, 2020. Daniel Friedman, MD, FACC, FHRS, Bradenton Cardiology Center and Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Medical Director of Watchman, implanted the first WATCHMAN FLX device – the only FDA-approved implant proven to reduce stroke risk in people with AF not caused by a heart valve problem – at Manatee Memorial Hospital. Dr. Friedman is also the first electrophysiology (EP) physician to perform this procedure in the state of Florida. Brian Holyk, MD, Bradenton Cardiology Center, performed a transesophageal echocardiogram, required during the procedure. Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Heart and Vascular Center’s Structural Heart staff assisted during the procedure.

“Manatee Memorial Hospital is thrilled to offer the next-generation WATCHMAN FLX™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Implant as part of our Structural Heart Program,” said Kevin DiLallo, CEO. “Patients who are taking medications on a long-term basis have this new implant option to help prevent blood clots and possible strokes.” The WATCHMAN technology, which has been implanted in more than 100,000 patients worldwide, closes off an area of the heart called the left atrial appendage (LAA) to keep harmful blood clots that can form in the LAA from entering the blood stream and potentially causing a stroke. By closing off the LAA, the risk of stroke may be reduced and, over time, patients may be able to stop taking blood thinners. The newest version of the implant has an updated design to help treat more patients safely and effectively to ensure the best long-term outcomes.

[RoadsManatee County is seeking public input on a p]  Manatee County Seeks Public Input for Redesign of Busy Northwest Bradenton Roadway

Manatee County is seeking public input on a planned renovation for a popular local road that leads to Robinson Preserve. County planners want residents to prioritize what amenities they’d like to see along the way, including sidewalks, bike lanes, street lighting, cross walks, landscaping, and modifications to existing vehicular travel lane widths. The County wants to meet the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists while providing enhanced safety for each type of user along the 9th Avenue NW. Designers are now looking to members of the public for input on what should be included in final roadway plans.

From now through Oct. 1, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are encouraged to visit www.mymanatee.org/mobility to view a short video about Complete Streets design concepts and to provide feedback with a nine-question survey. Results from the survey will provide the design team with valuable insight as they work to complete plans for the 9th Ave NW Roadway Improvement Project.

“Traditionally, when our projects reach this part of the design process, we would hold a public meeting in order to share information about the project” said Ogden Clark, Strategic Affairs Manager with Manatee County’s Public Works Department. “Now, with limitations on gatherings due to COVID-19, we are making an effort to get important information about the project out through different means. We hope that providing an extended period for public input online will allow for more participation than we would see for a one-time meeting.”  The 9th Ave NW Improvement Project will focus on reconstruction of the west end of the 9th Avenue NW from 75th Street NW to 99th Street NW and add a new multi-use trail. The project will also add missing sidewalk links on 9th Ave NW from 75th St NW to 71st St NW. Design and permitting phases are expected to begin in late 2020 and will likely last 12-18 months.
