Announcing the first resident-only group art exhibition in over two years at 1310 Gallery! This event will highlight the work of 27 prominent artists of the Sailboat Bend Artist community through Artspace at their 2,400 square foot, three-floor gallery.
Although this creative enclave has transitioned through a flux-housing both prestigious and emerging local artists since their 2008 inauguration, this exhibition will be proudly featuring the wide-scope of talent nestled there. The newest works by a combination of the veteran residents first to move in to the lofts, as well as residents newer to the community should make for an interesting evening of art, music and culture in Fort Lauderdale.
Featured Artists will include: Sonia Baez-Hernandez, Monica Barronton, Kerry Beasley, Barry Carmichael, Rory Carracino, Phillip Curtis, Asanyah Davidson, Louis Davis, Simone De Bernard Mas, Dana Dellacamera of Nakedown, Jeremiah Jenner, Nicole Kent, Laqui, Niki Lopez, Josafat Miranda, Suzanna Murphy, Cynthia Nichols, Greg Olivier, Nzingah Oniwosan, Christofer Polzer, Claudia Polzer, Lisa Rockford, Diego Romero, Nerissa Street, Yudelka Tavera, Andy C. Trejo, and Christine Velez-Stone.
The visiting audience can also share their â€œloveâ€ by contributing non-perishable food items in a drive for LifeNet4Families (formerly The Cooperative Feeding Program). With any three or more canned/boxed food items donated, each contributor will receive a raffle ticket for an opportunity to score original artwork from one of the generous artists-in-residence.
The artists at Sailboat Bend form a community located in downtown Fort Lauderdale through Artspace. The various disciplines and media include painters, photographers, writers, poets, sculptors, dancers, musicians, actors, graphic designers and non-profit organizations. Since 2008, the gallery has hosted monthly art exhibits, workshops, open studios, live performances, film screenings, and book readings-with over 48 events hosted in 2011 alone.
1310 Gallery is open by appointment in addition to the event times. For further information, please call 305-975-6262
The Open House listed on Sunday, February 26th will be in conjunction with the Sounds on the Bend free live music concert and the Sailboat Bend Civic Associationâ€™s Walking Tour. For more information please visit:
