Juke Joint is the vernacular term for an informal establishment featuring music, dancing, gambling, and drinking, primarily operated by African American people in the southeastern United States. The term "juke" is believed to derive from the Gullah word joog or jug, meaning rowdy or disorderly.
This word derives from West Africa and in the U.S, is linked primarily with the earlyt Gullah people who settled the islands on the coast of Georgia. It's meanings denote uncontrolled behavior, rowdiness, a sleazy place, a place of trouble, etc.  The original meaning is thought to be "wicked".

RAY KLEINLINE  Kleinlein has said my paintings "pay homages to the sensual, emotional, and spiritual perception of reality. They are affirmations of the quiet beauty of simple objects that exist around us in our everyday lives, and by extension, are affirmations of existence itself. My hope is that the work allows the viewer to take a look at the overlooked and appreciate the ordinary experiences of everyday life which can be quite beautiful. Ultimately the work is about beauty, care, and reverence. Through beauty, care, and reverence art can bring optimism, faith and love into the world. Art that does this can be nourishing and restorative to life."
