2014 Clearwater Jazz Holiday Poster
The 2014 35th Anniversary Clearwater Jazz Holiday Poster will be unveiled in June!
2013 Artist Rick Whalen
Rick Whalen was young when he began his art studies with his mother, a well known Niagara Falls painter that attended the University of Buffalo and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts, and continued studies at Albright Knox with well known artist. The family lived in Montreal, Buenos Aires, Rouen, and Baghdad before settling in St. Petersburg in 1956.
After years of working in oil with RR Robinson in his beach studio, Whalen began to experiment with water colors and fell in love with the transparency of the medium. He began plein air painting with Jan Mac Farlane in 1990 and continued studying with Bryan Ateyo, Tom Lynch, Tom Jones, Frank Webb, Don Getz, and continues with Taylor Ikin on Yupo Paper.
He says, “I am fascinated with the colors of Key West’s pastels, and the cheerful Caribbean palette of bright/vibrant colors. Much of his art incorporates these today. He is a juror on occasion, and generally likes the congeniality of fellow artists. In 2009 he took first and second prizes at The Beach Art Center on Indian Rocks in two of their summer shows. His art can be found all along the eastern seaboard. Much of his art is from private commissions.

Official After Party
Friday & Saturday,
October 17 & 18
What better way to continue the Clearwater Jazz Holiday experience than attending the Official After Party of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, starting at 10pm till 1:30am at the Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater. Constructed and established in 1921 as the Capitol Theatre (Royalty Theatre 1982-2008), this classic structure, complete with a large mezzanine and furnishings reminiscent of a classic Hollywood theater, is one of the oldest operating theatres in the state of Florida. The theaters beautiful Mediterranean-Revival façade with its ornate parapets and arched entrances were the talk of the town in its day. The finishing touches have recently been placed on the Capitol Theatre, which also encompasses the 1917 Clearwater News Building to its west. The result is a magnificent Mediterranean-Revival gem, which promises to fuel downtown's resurgence and become, once again, the cultural and arts center that it once was.
