About Bakehouse Art Complex:
Since its inception, the Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC) has served as a creative incubator for more than a thousand emerging and mid-career artists. The Bakehouse offers more than just studio space. This dynamic artistic community is home to dozens of artists working side-by-side in every media imaginable in an environment where they share in each other’s creative processes and inspire, encourage and motivate one another.
The Bakehouse is also the perfect place to enjoy contemporary art in the making year-round, featuring 65 working artist studios, two galleries with monthly exhibition openings, classes, and working facilities, such as a fully functional print room, dark room, a woodworking area, welding room and ceramic kilns for artist use. Thanks to the generous support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, BAC will create a ceramics studio and South Florida’s first community-accessible fine arts metal casting foundry in 2015. These areas provide Resident and Associate artists with in-house facilities to develop or to experiment and integrate new media into their work.
Open free 7 days per week, the Bakehouse offers patrons a rare glimpse into the creative experience and an opportunity to interact directly with a diverse and talented community of over 60 contemporary artists. With monthly exhibition openings, cultural and community events, classes for adults and children, and a soon-to-be-launched monthly Green and Art market, the BAC is not only a creative center, but also a vibrant community hub serving its artists, patrons, art buyers, and the South Florida community.

Photographs of Opening Reception at The Bakehouse Art Complex on 9/12/14

Sway Away and Convoluted Shape by Jamilah Sabur Opening Reception  at The Bakehouse Art Complex on Friday, September 12, 2014.

Sway Away exhibition is in the Audrey Love Gallery from September 10 – September 28.  “This show will feature two- and three- dimensional artworks representing the artists’ interpretation and capture of movement. Kinetic and site specific projects will be the focus creating a direct dialogue between science, physics and the arts.”

Convoluted Shape by Jamilah Sabur is in the Swenson Gallery from September 10 – October 18. “This exhibition studies the interdisciplinary uses of the body as a vehicle for expression. Jamilah Sabur opens the exhibition on September 12th with a multi-channel video installation and performance encompassing the interplay of inwardness and the secondariness of the audience through movement, concealment, obstacles and physical limitations as well as spontaneous and imperfect, sometimes comic, unrehearsed movements. The results illustrate the perverse rule the artist seems to have discovered: the less she can see, the more we, an audience, look.”

The Bakehouse Art Complex Mission:
 “Enable and encourage artistic creativity through diversity and collaboration.  By providing affordable studio spaces for juried emerging and mid-career artists
 Providing exhibition opportunities, educational and artist advancement programming, and common workshop spaces. Serve as a cultural hub providing a venue for performance and critical thought in Miami’s historic art deco bakery”
