Update on Jeremy Sicile-Kira and his art

jeremy-painting-the-colors-of-ted-and-haleyJeremy and family are grateful for all that has happened to Jeremy this year. Jeremy had his first solo curated art show in April 2016 at Space4Art in downtown San Diego. It was a huge success with all but two paintings sold, and 24 commissions resulting from the media attention.  Some of the people who had commissioned personalized paintings from Jeremy were happy to explain  how they felt about their paintings.

In November 2016, Jeremy was accepted and participated in the annual juried contemporary fine arts show, ART San Diego. You can see Jeremy doing his first live painting demonstration on this video recap of Day 2 of ART San Diego. Jeremy was chosen to be one of three Spotlight Artists at the event.

Jeremy has been named one of ten finalists for Platform Artist of the Year Award  by Redwood Media Group and Art Brand Studios. The winner will be announced during Art Week in Miami.

Jeremy is taking part in Exhibition: Animalia / A Group Show at Sparks Gallery in San Diego. Jeremy will also be taking part in the Gaslamp Pet Parade and Pop/up and Live Painting with Sparks Gallery. Jeremy will do a live painting demonstration at Sparks Gallery from 1:00 – 2:00 on Sunday Dec 11th.  Jeremy will do an aura reading of the pet and a complimentary aura reading for the owner with purchase of a commissioned pet painting.

Meanwhile, Jeremy’s Vision has Limited Edition prints (signed and numbered) available for sale. Personalized painting requests still accepted. Gift Certificates are available for either option for the holidays.

    Congratulations !
    Does Jeremy speak? My daughter loves to do art with her therapist ( on maternity leave and seems cannot come back ) and cannot speak. She lives in a group home with 5 other young adults who have severe autism. I wonder how we could further her skill in a group home setting, that is, motivate the staff to further her talent? There’s much turnover and often a lack of interest in getting more involved with the individuals. She also started an organic pie baking program which I initiated, the SLP made into a picture recipe step-by step instruction card and the staff got to a grinding halt saying that they did not like apple pie and that why should she be baking the same every time (to learn it, of course, and because she thrives on repetition!).
    An suggestion ?

      Hello Brita, Jeremy communicates by typing and has some words. Sounds like the pie making program worked (program you initiated). What made that work, and how could you apply it to getting people more interested in getting involved. Any of the staff have interest in the arts? You probably will have to initiate this as well. Any other parent with a resident there who would be willing to help? I’m the one who started cultivating Jeremy’s interest in art and I take care of the organizational aspects now.Best wishes!
