FlowerShopping.com - Click Here!MIAMI, FL – SyndicatedNews.NET’s CEO is John McEuen, one of the founders of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (known as the String Wizard).

But what’s really interesting is that his lovely wife Marilyn McEuen, (seated front and center) is also the owner and founder of her own public relations agency.

She is in Miami Florida meeting with SyndicatedNews.NET’s Bureau Chiefs, Stewart and Dena Stewart.

The Stewarts are also the founders of the Center for Folk and Community Art (CFCA); a long established nonprofit arts outreach organization established decades ago when the Stewarts returned from their European honeymoon and the artist couple set up shop on Lincoln Road (this was back in the day when storefronts were offered to artists for $100.00 per month). Dena’s artwork is available for sale. Contact her at [email protected]  All purchases are tax deductible.

The body of work the two have created is kept in various locations due to its size. They are also active educators teaching children how to use art to relieve stress and avoid violence. The program is very successful throughout the Miami Dade School District.

The first time Dena picked up a paintbrush, she had no formal training in art, yet she used it to express her feelings, hopes and dreams. Her heavily detailed street scenes with hundreds of people, her caricature-like portraits with personalized backgrounds, her lush landscapes, her breathtaking seascapes, and her tropical paradises include meaningful messages within beautiful surroundings. Dena’s paintings have been shown in: America’s Folk Heritage Gallery, NYC; “Eight Woman Show”–Interart St. Amand Gallery, NYC; Galerie Bonheur, Greenwich, CT; Cuban Museum, Miami, FL; Gallery: Why Not?, Miami Beach, FL; “Two Person Show”–Amdur Gallery, Miami Beach, FL; Gallery of the Eccentric, Coral Gables, FL; Sokolsky Gallery, Miami Beach, FL; “Portraits”–Metro Dade Library, Miami, FL; “A Salute to Outstanding Florida Artists”–State Capitol Building, Tallahassee, FL; The Sher Gallery, Aventura, FL; South Florida Art Picks, Miami Beach, FL; Miami Beach City Hall; The Stephen P. Clark Government Center, Miami, FL; The Capital Children’s Museum, Washington, D.C.; The New York Public Library, NYC; The North Miami Public Library, No. Miami, FL

 

Sam Edelstein wrote a wonderful bio about Stewart Stewart. Edelstein says that Stewart’s views of life are subtly worked into his paintings through the tens and sometimes hundreds of people that appear in his streetscapes. Stewart’s paintings require several lengthy visits — one is never enough — because as a viewer, you become a part of his crowded semi-realistic landscapes and street scenes and discover new, amusing characters each time you visit.

As you meander down his colorful sidewalks with pink and purple buildings, you recognize some of your own neighbors, or maybe even yourself. As you attend one of his “parties” you find yourself laughing along with his eccentrically costumed guests. His magical “flamingles” are your friends, and you surely played on his world-wide beaches and placed your bets at his ultra-diverse racetrack. Stewart’s artwork is for sale.
