Press Release:

ORLANDO, Fla. - Emerging Artist JEFRË to launch new downtown contemporary art house and announces the signing of DRIP to produce monthly performance art events.

After a year at the City Arts Factory and winning several international public art competitions, JEFRE will open a new innovative gallery and lounge called "Blank Space". Located at Lake Eola on the corner of Roseland and Central Avenue, Blank Space will be an experimental art and coffee lounge within the heart of the Downtown Arts District. The new Third Thursday Venue will feature contemporary art, installations, digital media, and interactive performances. DRIP will be producing monthly performance art events every Third Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening. DRIP is a performance art company that combines performing and visual arts. During performances, dancers create and often become visual art themselves by blending movement, artistic mediums and art installations. DRIP is a resident at The Center For Contemporary Dance ( and has created original performances for WWE Wrestlemania, Red Chair Affair, Nude Nite Orlando, Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival as well as creative conferences and private events.

Each month will feature a new DRIP experience. Patrons will witness the premiere of new performance art experiments, performance installations, interactive art, paint flying inside of plexiglass boxes and DRIPPIES (DRIP performers) playfully making a colorful mess.

" I have always thought the missing element of Third Thursday was a venue that specifically honored both contemporary and performance art," says JEFRE. "I am excited to collaborate with DRIP visionary Jessica 'Mariko' and her team of art directors to create the fusion of both art and performance that is currently missing downtown. My goal is to help elevate the arts in Orlando and draw a new audience that has not typically been a part of Third Thursdays."
