Welcome to the One Ear Society Blog

Welcome to the new One Ear Society Blog.  The OES  is a cooperative society that gathered artists from the South Florida Art Center and from the former Grove House in 1998.  Artists from both, initiated this cooperative, in the hopes that we would fare better.  We lasted a fine seven years and went underground in our eighth year where some artists morphed into another organization.  The Heart of the of the organization still beats strongly.  We now will share our years of experience in the art field from not just the artists' points of view but also from the galleries' points of view,  your comments are always welcome.  

Our home is in Coconut Grove, Florida, the first seaside community which was swallowed up by Miami, but we Grovites know who we are and how we made history before Miami even existed.

I made every effort to associate my art with Coconut Grove and create subject matter of interest and controversy. I offered art tile murals that would withstand weather, free throughout the Grove, mainly on main access roads leading into the Grove utilizing driftwood as framing and for my efforts I received 6 code violations and zero interest. However, several communities on the East coast of the U.S. and several in Europe have purchased my art placing the art about their communities, which I did for cost. Orders are just beginning to come in after about 18 months. Do you feel that this translates into Coconut Grove is no longer an artist community?
