Engraved 6:00pm - 9:00pm | Pompano Beach Cultural Center, 50 W Atlantic Blvd

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is delighted to announce their newest exhibition, “Engraved”. This collaboration with The Buenos Aires Editing Center in Argentina and the Latin American Art Pavilion Project (LAAP) celebrates the work and artistic development of women in the visual arts field. Forty European and Latin American female artists from Argentina, Austria, Ecuador and Venezuela will present some of their most representative pieces. The exhibition runs January 11-April 5, 2019 and is free and open to the public.

“We kick-off our celebration of International Women’s Month a little early in order to provide ample time to showcase this important exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Director of the Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department. “We are honored to once again be partnering with Maria Napoles of the Latin American Art Pavilion (LAAP) on another outstanding project, and we are delighted that Maria has introduced us to Professor Natalia Giacchetta and the impressive works of these talented female artists.”

“Engraved” features artists from different regions of the world who develop their artistic work through techniques such as lithography (printing or calcareous stone), printmaking (engraving in metal or wood), digital drawing and graphics, using mostly paper as a noble support of the representative depth of the images. The artworks will be exhibited following diverse techniques that highlight their individuality: with frames, without frames, as installations, and within showcases generating a climate of strength and subtleties. This demonstrates the virtues and characteristics of each individual work but, as a whole provides the viewer with an intense and harmonious journey into the world of each of these artists.

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is located at 50 West Atlantic Blvd, Pompano Beach, FL 33060

Tamiami Trail Exhibition Opening Reception 6:00pm - 10:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) presents Tamiami Trail: In the Beginning, an exhibition of original artworks by members of the Miami-based Tropical Botanic Artists collective. The exhibit will be on view in the West Gallery/Blooming Bean Coffee Roasters from April 5, 2019 through May 31, 2019. The free opening reception is Friday, April 5, 6pm-10pm during Old Town Untapped.

The botanical subjects were selected to mark the 100th anniversary in 2015 of the start of work on Tamiami Trail, a roadway begun in 1915 in Miami. Today it stretches across the Everglades from Miami to Naples and northward to Tampa, through areas that were largely wilderness a century ago. The exhibition’s more than 30 plant portraits depict species found then and now in multiple vegetation zones along the route. Due to human intervention and changes in water flow, some of the plants illustrated are rare or endangered, and their predominant locations may have shifted, but all persist in South Florida’s landscape.

“We invite our community to dive deep into the discerning talents of the artists capturing the essence of South Florida in plant form," said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Far beyond ‘flower painting,’ botanical artists show the fascinating and soul-stirring intersection of science and art.”

Presented with support from the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the exhibition is the result of the artists’ collaboration with Dr. Evelyn Gaiser of Florida International University, who is principal investigator for the local Florida Coastal Everglades Long Term Ecological Research program.

Artists whose works are featured in the exhibition are Margie Bauer, Kristi Bettendorf, Beverly Borland, Silvia Bota, Marie Chaney, Susan Cumins, Jeanie Daniel Duck, Julio Figueroa, Pauline A Goldsmith, Leo Hernandez, Elsa Nadal, Carol Onstad, Laurie Richardson, Donna Torres and Jedda Wong.

Life Drawing Studio 11:00am - 2:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Life Drawing, also referred to as Figure Drawing, is the best and quickest way to improve your drawing skills and your visual perception. Life drawing trains your eye to catch things that photos do not show. Therefore learning to master figure drawing is more than bones and muscles, it is about the subtle differences and minor details such as weight-bearing and positioning that translates to all forms.

We are excited to be able to bring this opportunity to all artists through our new Life Drawing Studio at Bailey Contemporary Arts in the City of Pompano Beach.

During this 2-hour session, live models pose draped for short "gesture" as well as longer poses. This program is ideal for individuals interested in portrait painting, character design, illustration, animation, anatomical drawing, however ALL artists benefit from Life Drawing sessions.

Artists are invited to bring their own materials and supplies.

This activity doesn’t provide formal instruction; participants work at their own pace and in their preferred medium.

Exhibition: Good Luck with the Sun 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Pompano Beach Cultural Center, 50 W Atlantic Blvd

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is pleased to present Good Luck with the Sun, showcasing the photography of Krista Steinke. The exhibit will be on view in the Gallery from April 12, 2019 through July 5, 2019. There is an opening reception, free to the public, on Friday, April 12, 7pm-9pm.

“We are so excited to present the work of Krista Steinke. Her art is so expansive, examining the physical and cultural landscape all around her,” says said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Her mesmerizing pieces invite the viewer to collaborate with her in seeing, then creating meaning together.”

Her project-based practice explores how the natural world impacts our lives in ways both obvious and mysterious, and photography’s unique role in mediating that experience. With the use of pinhole cameras, homemade filters, and other experimental techniques, she draws meaning from her materials and process, often working at the intersection of abstraction and photographic recording. Referencing varied sources such as art and photographic history, scientific areas of study, current events, and personal experience, her work sets out to reflect on the universalities that shape the human condition while also calling attention to critical issues surrounding the environment.

Steinke has exhibited and screened her work in museums, galleries, and film festivals across the country, as well as internationally. Her works are represented in public and private collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Woodmere Museum in Philadelphia, the Brauer Museum of Art, Atlanta International Airport, Johnson & Johnson Corporation, and Fidelity Investments, among others. She is the recipient of a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Fellowship, a grant from the Puffin Foundation, an Artist Residency at Light Work, a Promise Award from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, and most notably, a Fellowship in Photography from the Howard Foundation. She has participated in several photo festivals and conferences either as an exhibitor, speaker, or curator, including The International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAA), Denver Month of Photography, Fotofest, The Invision Photo Festival, and Society for Photographic Education (SPE).

Krista received a BA in Art and the Advanced Humanities from Valparaiso University, a BFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a MFA in Photography and Digital Imaging from The Maryland Institute, College of Art.

Pompano Beach Cultural Center Features Flora and Fauna
An Exhibition by Catalina Villegas: Botanica Animalia

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is pleased to present an exhibition of lively illustrations of the natural world by Catalina Villegas. The exhibit, in conjunction with a showing of Krista Steinke’s work in the cultural center’s main gallery, will be on view in the Hall of the Terrace from April 12, 2019 through July 5, 2019. There will be an opening reception, free to the public, on Friday, April 12, 7-9pm. “We invite our community to come savor the beauty of the natural world as evoked by Catalina Villegas,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Villegas’s work is a beautiful and dynamic complement to the exhibition of Krista Steinke’s art, running concurrently in the gallery at Pompano Beach Cultural Center.”

Featuring buoyant images in black and white, which transition into colorful flora and fauna, Catalina Villega’s work is a vibrant homage to the living things all around her. Villegas was born in Medellin, Colombia and was raised in Miami, Florida. She is an illustrator and surface pattern designer who grew up drawing and painting all of her favorite plants and animals. Her work focuses on exploring the vast diversity of lush flora and fauna found in Colombia and Florida. She has made her life’s purpose to be involved in creative endeavors. Her travels and professional adventures have given her the opportunity to work as a graphic designer for a Colombian menswear line, a freelance photographer in South Florida, and as an illustrator for clients around the world. Her work has been published in various magazines and blogs including WeTransfer.com and UPPERCASE Magazine. She licenses her art to companies that make a range of products including temporary tattoos, seed packets, home decor items, gift wrap and fabric. City of Pompano Beach, Department of Cultural Affairs

Villegas studied Fine Arts at Florida International University, and has completed numerous courses with renowned international art agent Lilla Rogers (Make Art That Sells) and Rachael Taylor (Make it in Design). She has a love for bass guitar, heavy metal, hula-hoops, chai lattes and chihuahuas. She plays the bass in an all-female rock band called Lilith. Catalina currently divides her time between La Ceja, Colombia, and Pompano Beach, Florida.

Lumen Print Workshop: Cameraless Photography with Sunlight 11:00am - 1:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Lumen printing is a photographic technique where UV light is used as a means to expose an image. A Photogram is a cameraless process that involves placing physical materials directly onto light sensitive paper.

In this workshop, participants will combine both of these approaches to create one of kind prints. The process involves placing vegetation and other found materials directly onto traditional black and white darkroom paper and then exposing to sunlight. Workshop will begin with a short 30-minute lecture on the historical process and will include examples from contemporary artists who are working with alternative photographic methods. Each participant will leave with approx. 4-5 prints, including 4x6 postcard prints reading to send in the mail.

Participants will need to bring found objects to create work. Transparent materials work especially well. Plant samples and vegetation will also create unique markings on the paper. Other ideas: glue, Vaseline, bubbles, and nontoxic liquids.

Curtain Call Theatre Presents Last of the Red Hot Lovers
Neil Simon’s Extraordinarily Funny Play Comes to the Pompano Beach Cultural Center

Curtain Call Playhouse is proud to present Neil Simon’s Last of the Red Hot Lovers at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center. The comedy opened on Broadway in 1969 and has become a hysterical look back at the sexual revolution in New York City. The show runs Saturday, April 13 at 8 pm and Sunday, April 14 at 2pm. Tickets are $26.

“We are so excited to bring back Last of The Red Hot Lovers,” said Kris Coffelt, Founder and Artistic Director. “This play encompasses the witty repartee, funny jokes and unflinching look at our culture that we all love about a Neil Simon play. With his death last year, we look at this performance as a tribute to his brilliance and the inspiration he gave to all of us in the theater community.”

The play focuses on Barney Cashman, a middle-aged, married, and overworked man who wants to join the sexual revolution before it’s too late. He arranges three seductions: the first, Elaine Navazio, proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses; Bobbi Michele is next, a 30-ish actress who’s too kooky by half; finally comes Jeanette Fisher, a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney’s best friend. A cascading series of comic errors follows!

Life Drawing Studio 11:00am - 2:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Life Drawing, also referred to as Figure Drawing, is the best and quickest way to improve your drawing skills and your visual perception. Life drawing trains your eye to catch things that photos do not show. Therefore learning to master figure drawing is more than bones and muscles, it is about the subtle differences and minor details such as weight-bearing and positioning that translates to all forms.

We are excited to be able to bring this opportunity to all artists through our new Life Drawing Studio at Bailey Contemporary Arts in the City of Pompano Beach.

During this 2-hour session, live models pose draped for short "gesture" as well as longer poses. This program is ideal for individuals interested in portrait painting, character design, illustration, animation, anatomical drawing, however ALL artists benefit from Life Drawing sessions.

Artists are invited to bring their own materials and supplies.

This activity doesn’t provide formal instruction; participants work at their own pace and in their preferred medium.

Exhibition: Double Exposure Opening Reception 6:00pm - 8:00pm | Historic Ali Cultural Arts, 353 Martin Luther King Blvd

The Historic Ali Cultural Arts presents Double Exposure, an expression of A. J. Brown’s double life as both a visual artist and vocalist. The exhibit, free and open to the public, will be on view during regular business hours from April 25 through June 14, 2019. The opening reception, including a concert and conversation with the artist, is Thursday, April 25, 6-8pm.

“I paint whatever moves me,” explained Brown. “When I spend time to capture and visually record whatever appeals to my emotional senses at specific moments in my life, the intention is to share that experience with the viewer. My portraits are few and personal, usually of different icons, family members and close friends. Some of my landscapes are, in essence, also portraits, revealing protected treasures, unique geographical locations, or ways of living. My still life pieces typically reflect atmospheric and philosophic statements, and my abstracts reflect my freedom to commit to the journey from a blank canvas to what was created.”

Exploring the exhibition, visitors are taken on a journey through time and space with each painting. The pieces cover a wide range of subject matter and artistic genres, including portrait, still life, landscape and abstract. “We are so gratified to be able to exhibit the very vivid and fresh art works of A.J. Brown,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “His vibrant work offers glimpses into his own passionate nature and brings Pompano Beach a burst of Caribbean energy and flavor. The fact that he’s also a talented vocalist is icing on the cake!”
