The Timucua Arts white house.

Nora Lee Garcia, performed on flute and Rene Izquierdo, performed on guitar at the Timucua Arts white house (2000 S Summerlin Ave, Orlando, Florida 32806) on Sunday January 8th, 2017.  The featured visual artist live painting was Elizabeth St. Hilaire.

The program included: 
Suite Buenos Aires by Maximo Diego Pujol (1957- )
I- Pompeya II-Palermo III-San Telmo IV-Micro Centro Musiques Populaires Brésiliennes by Celso Machado (1953- )
Sambosa Algodao Doce Pe De Moleque Piazza Vittorio Ave Maria by Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) Hasta Alicia Baila by Eduardo Martin (1956- )
and History of Tango by Astor Piazzolla

It was fun watching Elizabeth paint to the music in her bright pink socks and shoes. Her work was spot lit around the room. The canvas was prepped with a faint collage of hand written letters, and she painted a 1920's era bathing beauty. After the concert people crowded around the entry table to sip wine and the potluck snacks. The White House is one place in Orlando that truly fosters a sense of artist: community. The number of concerts keeps growing now that Benoit Glazer has retired from his musical director position at Cirque du Soleil. There is now member ship options that can be bought. Members get to enter the venue first and there are other perks around town.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
