â€œRough & Tumbleâ€ Art Exhibition opens with FAT Village Art Walk
Saturday, 08/31/2013 – 10/05/2013 07:00 pm – 10:00 pm
The Projects at Fat Village Arts District
523 NW 1st Ave, ,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301
Artists from South Florida and beyond will occupy an 8000 square foot warehouse and alternative exhibition space, creating new works that hang from the rafters, conform to, and are inspired by the unique site. Installation art, mixed media, Sculpture, Video art, and Interactive works are included.
29 artists were selected through a part juried, part invitational process. The artists are linked by their fresh approaches to the ROUGH & TUMBLE theme: â€œcharacterized by violent, random, disorderly action and struggles, unrestrained, marked by bursts of destructive force or intense activity,â€ and â€œan unorganized collection or mixture of various things, described as Raw, Textured, Volatile, and/or Arbitrary, Hybrid forms.â€
The exhibition is housed within â€œThe Projects North,â€ in FAT Village ARTS District, the leading exhibition space for monthly art walks in Fort Lauderdale. There will be two public receptions, on Aug. 31 & Sept. 28, as part of the monthly (4th Saturday) art walk in FAT Village, which spans 4 square blocks and is populated with artistâ€™s studios, galleries & other creative businesses.

The closing reception for Rough & Tumble, on Oct. 5, will be part of the 4th Annual ART FALLOUT Event. ART FALLOUT is a collaboration between Girls Club Art Collection, 1310 Gallery, The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, FAT Village Arts District, 3rd Avenue artists, and other local venues. There will be a shuttle bus rotating between each of these locations. Multiple venues will host their own new art exhibitions simultaneously for one night, and all events will be FREE, and open to the public. ART FALLOUT venues are unified in the mission to bring greater awareness to the thriving art scene within the downtown Fort Lauderdale area, as well as celebrate the Broward County Cultural Divisionâ€™s designation of October as â€œa month for art,â€ supporting the production and presentation of contemporary art in the local community.
