Placeness: Cuban Women Artists in the U.S. Exhibition Opening Reception 6:00pm - 8:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

PLACENESS features eleven women artists whose work in photography provides a glimpse into diverse histories on race, gender, community, and migration. Photography played a fundamental role in the feminist art movement of the late 1960s because of its accessibility and pronouncement of political and social issues in a direct way. By using photography, women artists found a powerful tool, to deconstruct the male gaze and bring private themes into public discussion. Also, photography was a non-traditional medium -a recent one in comparison to painting and sculpture- which expanded the definition of fine arts and incorporated diverse artistic possibilities. This exhibition presents the diverse contributions of Cuban women photographers in the United States since the seventies when the concept of a collective “Latino” identity is crucial. These artists started to attend art schools and participated in the atmosphere of social movements. They created new images of their communities and examined pluricultural experiences challenging the notions of being Cuban or American. This show exposes artwork rarely seen or exhibited, and at the same time, proposes to think, through the idea of ‘place’ about the social, cultural and political identities of Cuban Women Artists in the United States within the discussion about Latinx art.

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.

Space available for 6 participants per session, so register early!

One Love Bahamas: Hurricane Dorian Benefit Concert 7:00pm | The Amp, Pompano Beach

The City of Pompano Beach, Shipwreck Park and Florida based concert and festival promoters are working together in support of the Bahamas to host One Love Bahamas a benefit concert to aid recovery and rebuilding efforts in the Bahamas. The event will be held on Saturday, November 23rd at the Amp in Pompano Beach. All event proceeds will benefit Hurricane Dorian victims in the Bahamas. Tickets for One Love Bahamas will go on sale Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 10 a.m., through Ticketmaster. Lineup information will be announced soon. Visit www.onelovebahamas.org for concert updates, VIP information. Volunteer opportunities or to donate.

Just under an hour plane ride away from the closest Bahamian island, Florida based concert and festival promoters became deeply aware of the dire situation after the devastation of Hurricane Dorian bringing the idea to bring a benefit concert to South Florida.

That sentiment was warmly received by the City of Pompano Beach, who has been collecting donations of food, water and other survival support essentials since the deadly hurricane passed. City officials, working alongside Shipwreck Park through its humanitarian efforts, offered to host the event realizing how much it is going to take to help the Bahamas get through this.

Rebuilding the islands and restoring its residents will take a massive, coordinated effort over many years to come. One Love Bahamas was formed with the belief that even in the darkest of days, incredible things can happen when incredible people come together.

Shipwreck Park, a Pompano Beach 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization has diverted all of its efforts to Bahamian Disaster relief and will administer 100% of concert proceeds to this effort. Shipwreck Park is dedicated to the creation of an underwater park system establishing artificial reefs, utilizing public art to raise awareness of the need to preserve and conserve our natural coral reef system. For more information about Shipwreck Park visit www.shipwreckparkpompano.org.

Save the date and stay tuned for an exciting artist line-up!
