"Surrounded Islands"
Slides presentation by Joe Fleming.
Informal dialog with Margarita Cano, Paula Harper, Helen Kohen, Ruth Shack. Moderated by Barbara Young.BAC Art Canvas, a new series of quarterly panels offered by the Bakehouse Art Complex. Open to the community, members and non-members alike, will discuss Christo & Jeanne-Claudeand their project “Surrounded Islands” from 1980-1983.

BAC Art Canvas is a quarterly panel discussion covering contemporary art in Miami. “Surrounded Islands” was a temporary art event, but what transpired during the preparation of the project and what its gorgeous unveiling on Biscayne Bay meant to Miami still reverberates today. The dressing of 11 spoil islands in pink plastic was the catalyst that turned a culturally sleepy town into a vital city, home to art and artists. The panelists, participants and monitors of “Surrounded Islands”, will share their memories of the roles played by individual citizens and special interest groups during those contentious days leading to the “live” exhibition portion of their uncommon, common efforts.

Calendar September 2 / 7pm
Poetry Reading by Ricardo Pau-LlosaRicardo Pau-Llosa, a major figure on the South Florida literary and visual arts scene, has been publishing poetry and art criticism for 36 years.  His original model of art criticism has helped shape our view of modern Latin American painting and sculpture. The reading will be in English. A reception will be held afterwards for Ricardo Pau-Llosa and Humberto Castro.

His ideas about what sets Latin American art apart from other modernist traditions, together with his poetry and prodigious art collecting, is the focus of a monumental tribute at the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame this fall.  Among the artists Pau-Llosa has published important essays on are Olga de Amaral, Fernando de Szyszlo, Rogelio Polesello, Jesús Soto, Hugo Consuegra, and Humberto Castro, whose work is on exhibition at Virginia Miller Galleries.

Spiritual Healing – Shamans of the Northwest Coast
For countless centuries indigenous peoples have lived along the Northwest Coast of the North American continent, thriving in a rich natural environment.  They believe that all nature is endowed with spirits. Illness is believed to come from the supernatural realm of these spirits. The shaman is the ritual healer who draws directly upon his helper spirits to drive away illness using a wide variety of objects.  Thus, healing is a religious event.After History
Jacek J. Kolasinski

DEMONS nurture/nature
Kathy Dambach
FIU Art + Art History Department Faculty Exhibition

Recent Acquisitions from the Museum’s Latin American Art Collection
This large and bountiful installation of more than fifty works in various media illustrates the commitment by the Museum to add to its contemporary holdings art that reflects the character and heritage of Broward County’s growing Hispanic community.Latin American Art from the Collection of Pearl and Stanley Goodman
Within the part thirty years, the art of Latin America has become a respected and recognized category of modern and contemporary art history, perhaps best known in the United States for the Mexican murals of Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orózco, the chubby figures of Fernando Botero, and the haunting self-portraits of Frida Kahlo.
Pablo Picasso Ceramics / Carlos Luna Paintings
This installation is a ‘conversation’ between one of the most innovative artists of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), and a talented young artist from Cuba, Carlos Luna (born 1969).  Both artists had to leave their native countries in order to develop as artists; Picasso left Spain for France in the beginning of the 20th century; Luna left Cuba for Mexico at the end of that same century.  The two artists share a common heritage in the art of Spain, a passion for art-making, and although they live/d on different continents at different times, they share in the expression of common, universal themes.

Manuel Carbonell. Modern Master SculptorAn important collection of maquettes, sculptures, bas-reliefs and monumental sculptures by Cuban Master SculptorManuel Carbonell. His commissioned work as the creator of two of Miami’s most important landmarks, “The Tequesta Family” at the Brickell Avenue Bridge and “El Centinela del Rio” at the entrance of the Miami River in Brickell Key, denotes his more classical and figurative style. The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work.

Beaux Arts is pleased to announce we are now representing highly acclaimed Argentinean Master Marco Otero, a painter, sculptor and architect. His work is a derivative of the New York School of Expressionist which took place in the 1960’s. An important collection of his paintings are now on exhibit at the gallery, as well as paintings and sculptures by Mauro Arbiza.

ID: Self Identification
Miami-based artist, MANO explores the aspects of adapting to a new culture in his newest collection; ID: Self Identification. The need to fit into an adopted country can be bittersweet and often results in the hybridization of cultural identity.MANOS’s eye-catching and thought provoking works reference passport ID photos and incorporate elements of collage both as technique and metaphor. “I’ve always been fascinated with the cultural patchwork of the United States” said MANO, “My interest is rooted in my own immigrant experience through Operation Pedro Pan. By way of this collection, I wanted to create a conversation that would focus on the many similarities of our own or that of our family’s experience”.
