2012 Clearwater Jazz Holiday poster unveiled | Arts & Culture
Clearwater, Florida -- The 33rd Annual Clearwater Jazz Holiday poster by artist Ramirez Cortino was unveiled at the Dunedin Fine Art Center Tuesday night.
Ramirez Cortino was born in Bogota, Colombia and began painting at a very early age. Ramirez has attended art schools, but is essentially self-taught and has been developing his unique style over the years.
Ramirez transforms passion into art by embracing life and the spirit reflecting his thoughts and feelings in a path of connection to life itself and nature. Every painting consists of precise lines and the pure use of colors seen in traditional Latin American art. These characteristics give each of Ramirez's paintings a strong compositional movement, varying from surrealism to figurative to even a touch of abstract. Ramirez uses Symbols in his paintings to represent our lives as dream-like experiences and his palette varies from Oils to Acrylic to Mix-media.
Continuing with its diverse music lineup in 2012, the Clearwater Jazz Holiday is sure to appeal to the tens of thousands of visitors attracted to this world-class event, the third weekend in October each year.
The event takes place Oct. 18 - 21 featuring talents such as Esperanza Spalding Radio Music Society, The Avett Brothers, Mindi Abair and Friends featuring Jeff Golub and David Pack and Bonnie Raitt along with many more artists!
Tickets now available for $10 in advance. Children 12 and under are FREE. Limited Reserved Seating and VIP tickets are also available.
