    Elisa Turner's Picks for October 2014

    October’s Harvest of Color

    Color is October’s high-yielding harvest. Its many-hued brilliance cascades throughout museums and galleries. Don’t miss “Café Dolly” at NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale: intensely painterly works by French artist Francis Picabia, American artist Julian Schnabel and Danish artist Jens Ferdinand Willumsen link generations across the map. Eye-popping colors yield adventurous energy in “Folkloric Acid” at Mindy Solomon Gallery, with high-octane zest of Einar and Jamex de la Torre, mixing media such as blown-glass sculpture and digital and lenticular printing. Look for bold color in abstract, geometric sculpture by Lía Bermúdez of Venezuela at Art Nouveau Gallery: her sassy shapes etch curvilinear drawings spiraling through space.  HistoryMiami recalls those 1960s psychedelic colors of Beatlemania, with  “Ladies and Gentlemen… The Beatles!”
