When artists talk about their “work”, they can be talking about two different things. There’s the artwork, the finished product, framed and hung on a gallery wall. Then there’s the day to day stuff of creating the artwork itself such as searching for inspiration leading to an idea, deciding how to express it, applying paint to canvas, etc. By letting go of our egos and sharing the process, we allow others to have ongoing connections with us and our work.

Wynwod Brewing Co. is hosting a tap takeover at 180 Degrees on Tuesday, August 18th from 5-11 PM to showcase 7 craft beers. One of them will be a special concoction designed by Chef Ryan Martin and the local brewery made just for 180 Degrees. The unveiling will take place at 7 PM and beer is limited. Chef Martin has not given any hints to the flavor but, with his “gastronomy redefined” concept we can only imagine it will be something out of this world. If the public likes it enough, 180 Degrees might even add it to their beer menu permanently.

Cost: Individual- $1499 ~ Group- $1499

Each day, 164 people lose their lives – many unnecessarily – due to improper care of pressure wounds also known as bedsores, a little-known area of medicine that is growing at an alarming rate with the rapid aging of our society.
Registered and licensed vocational nurses and those in related fields may earn continuing education credit and certification in the area of wound care by enrolling in weekend courses sponsored by the College of Long Term Care:

• August 26-28, 2015 – Miami, FL (Includes Skills Lab)
• September 9-11, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA (Includes Skills Lab)
• September 23-25, 2015 – Oakland, CA (Includes Skills Lab)
• October 28-30, 2015 – Dallas, TX (Includes Skills Lab)

“The growing problem of pressure wounds is especially challenging for nursing homes that have had to send their residents to specialty clinics and hospitals for treatment,” said Anvar, who also founded the College of Long Term Care. “This is especially costly when you factor in ambulance transportation, lifting and moving patients in delicate health, admittance to the hospital and surgical care. Also, the simple act of transporting patients can lead to the onset of additional pressure wounds. By teaching staff how to prevent such wounds and identify them at the earliest stages, we can reverse these troubling statistics.”
Weekend courses sponsored by the College of Long Term Care will reveal these basic facts about caring for wounds:

• Avoid excess baths (should only bathe for 3-5 minutes 2-3 times per week)
• Keep water temperature lukewarm – not hot
• Add bath oil
• Do not use most soap products as they contain detergent (Dove is the exception)
• Do not use washcloths
• Pat dry
• Apply moisturizer immediately after bathing and reapply 4 times each day
• Stay well hydrated
• Avoid caffeine, spices and alcohol

“THE PERFECT LIFE” MFA Exhibition

Living in suburbia, it is difficult to notice the many discrepancies between the romantic appeal of the perfect life, and the reality of living away from the city. The work shown here, is a small set of stories from actual women choosing to live in the suburbs, confronting unexpected issues, and dealing with roles and society’s impositions.
Printmaking allows me to mimic the idealistic communities of the suburbs by giving me the option of creating and playing with repetitive words and images, directly sending multiple messages to the observer. The purpose of these prints is to expose the unspoken issues, airing out skeletons in our closets.
This body of work is intended to open a conversation about changing or sharing roles within our own circles. Wether in suburbia or the city, women need to believe they have the ability to choose their paths and change their roles if need be, thus being able to direct their perfect lives.

Posi-Tone recording artist and composer Noah Haidu is evidence that 21st-century jazz can be adventurous, fresh and swing hard. He is an exciting, modern pianist who can play memorable melodies and soulful grooves. His powerful Posi-Tone Records debut SLIPSTREAM garnered rave reviews and 8 weeks in the top 50 national jazz radio charts. His second CD, MOMENTUM, lived up to its name as Noah performed to packed crowds in Washington, DC, New York, Boston, and elsewhere and the rave reviews continued. But Noah goes beyond making great records with a passion for live performance. He has played in New York City at The Blue Note and Jazz at Lincoln Center and abroad from Oslo to Istanbul to Guayaquil, Ecuador. Noah has appeared on stage and recorded with heavyweights such as Mike Stern, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jeremy Pelt, Benny Golson, and many others. The Steinway Gallery of Coral Gables has generously provided a piano. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.

MOCA is located at 770 NE 125th St., North Miami. More info at mocanomi.org or (305) 893-6211. The concert is free for all ages.
