Join the Bakehouse Art Complex on Friday, August 12th from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. for the BAC’s Monthly Second Friday Event! This month, view two brand spanking new exhibitions and participate in the “Sketchiest” Party in town! Listen to the sounds of DJ V, Free Parking and Open Wine Bar.
Sketchy Miami has a simple and impossible goal: to create a portrait of every person in Miami. In only two months, nearly 100 local artists, including several BAC artists, have created more than 200 portraits, or “Sketchys”. With millions of Sketchys still to be done, the guys behind Sketchy Miami (who also run beachedmiami.com) are throwing their second Sketchy Party at the BAC on August 12th.
The Swenson Gallery is showcasing Cross-Pollinated Signals by Miami-based artist Enrique Sendra. The exhibition probes the tragedy of uprooting family, the courage of exploration, the raw humility in struggle and quiet moments of everyday heroism. Part memory and part observation mixed with a world of magical realism, the exhibition presents contemporary paintings of Enrique Sendra, a rising star in the Miami and Cuban art communities. The show is guest curated by Karina Anania and will be on view until August 26, 2011.
The exhibition Mid Summer Night’s Dream is also on view at the Audrey Love Gallery featuring artwork by BAC resident artists.
