Furthering its mission of nurturing local artists, the Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC) will showcase the work of ten of the most widely recognized women artists in Miami. Timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Art Basel Miami Beach, “Woman to Woman” highlights these artists’ contributions to developing Miami’s vibrant art scene long before and since the fair began to attract international attention. Just as recent museum exhibitions have spotlighted 20th century artists whose achievements have often been under-recognized, the Bakehouse Art Complex is proud to present a unique perspective on the creative process of women making significant artwork in Miami today.

Woman to Woman
In early 2011, five rising talents were chosen by the Bakehouse curatorial committee, comprised of well-respected visual arts professionals in Miami. These artists – Elizabeth Cerejido, Julie Davidow, Felice Grodin, Vickie Pierre and Samantha Salzinger – were each asked to choose another woman in South Florida with whom to collaborate on a new artwork commissioned for “Woman to Woman.” The pairings are: Cerejido with Mia Leonin, Davidow with Carol Prusa, Grodin with Michelle Weinberg, Pierre with Sara Stites, and Salzinger with Francie Bishop Good. To provide additional context for the works they have made together, each artist will also display selections from her own oeuvre.
The opening reception of “Woman to Woman” will be held November 26, 2011, at 7:00 p.m. at the Audrey Love Gallery located in the Bakehouse Art Complex’s main facility. The opening reception will offer guests a wonderful evening featuring live musical performance from Miami’s The State Of, complimentary cocktails provided by Domain de Canton, and the unique opportunity to visit the studios of over 65 local emerging and midcareer artists.
