Join the Coral Springs Museum of Art for an artist reception featuring environmental painter Elizabeth Thompson, abstract artist Sally Cooper, and Miami-based fine artist Alvaro Labañino, while enjoying light refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. Labañino and Thompson’s exhibits will be on display through Saturday, March 2, 2019 and Cooper’s exhibit will be on display through Saturday, December 29, 2018.

Elizabeth Thompson: “Elizabeth Thompson”
Thompson went to Paris, France in 1976 after graduating college for a Fellowship, where she met her future husband and grew her art. Thompson’s work has always been inspired by “the power of space”- painting beaches, the Paris architecture and Florida landscapes. After inspiration from multiple landscapes, such as the Everglades and her trip to Africa, Thompson began to incorporate “a multitude of local, natural images, illustrating the cyclical relationship between life and death.” Thompson’s art has always centered on the careful observation of nature, poetic isolation and the juxtaposition of handmade work in a machine-made world.

Sally Cooper: “Journey to Abstraction”
Abstract artist Sally Cooper has been painting her entire life, but in the mid-nineties Cooper moved from “detailed representational work” towards the abstract. By 2000, Cooper’s artistic style evolved into explosions of color, markings and movement. Cooper’s surface is “built, destroyed and erased again” with vigorous brush strokes to create a subtle and sensitive history of what has been “until from chaos, a beautiful painting is created.”

Alvaro Labañino – “Echoes of Silence”
Alvaro Labañino, born in Miami, Florida from working-class immigrant parents, was the first in his family to graduate from Miami-Dade college and then continue to obtain his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Florida International University. Miami-based fine artist Labañino creates paintings that function as thresholds to his mind, portraying a world of thoughts, life experiences, dreams, nightmares and fears, materializing in the form of personal objects, domestic spaces and landscapes. Labañino’s paintings are systematically structured, with images segmented into flat contour colors, interacting at various intensities and temperatures to depict his intended disposition. Labañino’s inspiration thrives from the extensive history of art, the School of London, the German Expressionists and his hometown of Miami, Fl.

Students under 25 with ID pay $10. The concert will be preceded at 7:45 by “Ron’s 15,” outlining next season’s offerings.

“Elegant. Powerful. Stylish. Energetic. Mesmerizing. Expressive. Shimmering. Personable. Nicole Henry really is breathtaking, visually, and to the ears.”- Jodi Duckett, The Morning Call

Nicole Henry was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania to a musical family and was immersed in the arts, singing in church and school, while studying cello and ballet. Performance, however, was clearly her destiny. She matriculated at University of Miami and briefly pursued an acting career limited to commercials and voiceovers before acknowledging that she excelled at vocal jazz performance. Since her dazzling 2004 record debut, The Nearness of You, Nicole has established herself as one of the jazz world’s most acclaimed vocalists. However, it was the 2011 release of the acclaimed Embraceable CD that expanded her repertoire beyond standards, as she introduced original compositions and even a touch of gospel. She benefited from an all-star jazz band that included Kirk Whalum, Gerald Clayton, Julian Lage, Gil Goldstein, Larry Grenadier and Eric Harland.

Nicole possesses a potent combination of beauty, onstage charisma, impeccable phrasing, and powerful emotional resonance. Her repertoire includes the American Songbook, classic and contemporary jazz titles, blues, and originals. On this long-awaited date, Nicole will lead her outstanding quintet.

Former Refugee Launches her Book to Showcase Beauty, Self-Esteem, and Love 4/7/18

Buy Tickets
Cost: $30

On Saturday April 7th, Ferial Youakim, a former refugee, published author, global entrepreneur and image consultant will discuss her newly released book “Beyond Beauty – A Refugee’s Journey in Pursuit of Happiness” and sign complimentary copies for attendees at the Arts Garage, a non-profit visual and performing arts organization located at 94 NE 2nd Ave, Delray Beach, Fl. The memoir is Ferial’s journey of self-discovery and empowerment, from a childhood in a refugee camp to a successful business woman and global figure. Tickets are $30 and include refreshments and a copy of the Ferial newly released book. Tickets are available: http://artsgarage.org/authorevents/

“I can educate you, show you, and tell you that you are beautiful, but you have to believe it, and keep that belief alive in everything that you do. You already are a masterpiece.” –Ferial Youakim

Many born into a refugee camp would forever label themselves as a failure, and deem their lack of adequate education a tragedy that is enormous. Only the extraordinary would overcome these challenges to rise tall, unbreakable and beautiful, destined to inspire the rest of us.

Ferial Youakim is an image consultant with a successful international business. Those who seek out her services do so with the intent that she will “make them beautiful” – indeed, like she is. However, Ferial is adamant that this isn’t at all what she does. She reminds them of their beauty.

Ferial wrote Beyond Beauty to tell the often-tragic details of her own story, of the occasions when she so badly wanted to just give up because the stress felt unbearable.

The problem was that Ferial was working as an image consultant, convincing others of their beauty and unique selves, when she in fact was suffering crippling self esteem issues.

“On the outside, I was a strong woman and a symbol of hope, perseverance and determination, but on the inside, I was broken. It was only when others could see the strength that I did not know I had that I was able to change my focus and to start looking at the opportunities that had presented themselves to me. Because a lot of people looked up to me, being strong was my only choice,” –Ferial Youakim

Ferial still considered herself “lost” when she became a mother to her three children – lost in Lebanon, searching for herself in Australia and eventually finding herself in South Florida, when her husband received a stupendous job opportunity.

However, partly because of her self-diagnosed remaining “thoughts of a refugee.” Ms Youakim regrets some of her behaviour and actions as a mother, and has even written a public apology to her children. However, as one reads Beyond Beauty they too may find her recollections and explanations as overly harsh, when they discover the opportunities and unrelenting love she has actually afforded to her children.

This is the perfect example of the shards of poor self-esteem that remain, even though most of them have been torn down by Ms Youakim so that she may live her life more fully and without reservation.

Ferial recalls a story when she and her siblings were children. Their father, a manual labourer, was always looking to save money whenever possible, on one family trip; her father could not afford the beautiful tiles in a shop. So by prior agreement, Ms Youakim’s father and all of his children were on their hands and knees searching for the various broken shards. They were all her father could afford, and upon gently placing them together, they would be beautiful and perfect in their own right.

“Those tiles were our flying carpet and also the reminder of the love he has for us, All these years later, I now discover that love and beauty are inseparable.” –Ferial Youakim

When a motorcycle riding club outgrows allocated parking space, it’s simply a great sign that there’s a better location for the club. Fury Road Riding Club (www.FuryRoadRC.com), the fastest growing motorcycle enthusiast riding club of men and women in South Florida officially announces their new bike nite home at Buffalo Wild Wings, 1219 S. Federal Highway, Deerfield Beach (directly across from Target).

“When you have a loyal following of like-minded individuals, it really made the move smooth and we quickly grew as the word spread about the club and it’s mission,” said Andrew “Dre” Sloan, CEO & Executive Director of Fury Road R.C. “Our new space is very accommodating, plenty of room for growth and the management and service is very helpful to all our riders,” added Sloan.

Fury Road R.C. makes appearances at charity and community events to offer awareness and bring some loud fun to all occasions. Riders wear our signature t-shirts designed by Kala Sloan, Fury Road R.C. Director of Brand Development and Merchandising that are a sign of our mission.

“Every week a featured bike goes under our tent and we ask the rider to share a story about their bike or a ride they took with it and it really creates a nice bond with everyone,” said Adrienne Mazzone, President, TransMedia Group and Fury Road R.C. Director of Media Relations. “We all make sure to greet each rider personally and introduce them to all new riders around so they feel comfortable and look to come back again and again,” added Mazzone.

Some of the rides Fury Road R.C. does brings some thunder to events, share images and help get extra exposure. Our road Captain Michael will plan out rides after bike nite which is our famous tunnel run in Fort Lauderdale or head North up past Mar Largo and the beautiful ride up AIA, as well as many other destinations in which Graciano Drwila, Director of Operations and Sales for Fury Road R.C., will film with his go pro! As riders get to know everyone, they’re added to our group chat where plans are made 7 days a week, rides planned and the Fury Road R.C. family continues to grow.

We invite media to come out and get to know the riders, talk about some rides we’ve done and plans ahead. Special guests will also be available along with some beautiful motorcycles.
