The Guild Five Forty Five
“The Artist in Me”
Welcome to our newest Villagers, The Guild, Five Forty Five.  In early May, the Guild hosted a field trip of about 60 first and second graders in the Meet the Masters program from Virginia Shuman Young school. They spent a few hours in the Village, met some artists, visited their galleries and attended a letterpress workshop at the Guild. Artwalk will feature a selection of the work of the students, a showcase of photos from the field trip, a video documentary of interviews with the kids and the premier of the Guild Photo Booth. Be photo ready for the fun in the photo booth.

The Projects, North and South
“Catalyst” closing reception
Curators/artists Leah Brown and Peter Symons have brought together a diverse, international group of artists who are utilizing digital technology to create innovative work exploring our changing and often uncomfortable new relationship with the technologies that have become essential to the way we define ourselves. Projection mapping, interactive video installation, digital fabrication, and virtual spaces made real are combined in this immersive exhibition that spans both the Projects/South and Projects/North art spaces.

Projects/South is transformed by Psalm, a new, site-specific installation by 3PQ, the artist collective made up of acclaimed South Florida essentials, Sinisa Kukec, Freddy Jouwayed, and Stephan Tugrul. Using a combination of physical and projected space, 3PQ creates an immersive experience for the viewer.

Projects/North is a digital whirlwind of moving image and sound, where the viewer must engage with the technology to become part of the exhibition. Artists in this space are: Balam Soto, Amitesh Grover, Nadya Primak, Brian Davis, Jesse England, Claudio Castillo, Luke Jenkins, Arun Matta, and Leah Brown and Peter Symons.

In The Cube v.2.5, New Media Artist Balam Soto utilizes hacked game controllers and physical computing in an interactive installation that links tangible and digital reality.

C & I Studios
The Green Light Gentleman’s Bar,  8:00 – 11:00
In the spirit of the Great Gatsby, C & I Studios will be celebrating high society living in a roaring 20’s style speakeasy.  Flappers, gangsters and a ban on alcohol that had everyone and their mother drinking in secret, the 1920s embodied a certain dazzling decadence and risqué mystery that inspires creative celebrations.  Come dolled up in your zoot suits and flapper fringe dresses, and keep it classy.
541 NW 1st Ave

Project Fine Art
Elle Schorr, Solo Exhibition and May #HELIUMCREATIVE365 Challenge
”My work is informed by lifelong passions for contemporary art, architecture and photography.”  …Elle Schorr
Elle Schorr’s works may look like photo collages, but they are always single photographs, capturing, in a split second, her unique, conflicting and overlapping impressions of our fast paced contemporary world, with all its sounds, contradictions and confusion.
500 NW 1st Avenue

World and Eye Studio
“Modern Still Lives”
In the times of the Dutch masters every object in a Still Life was imbued with symbolism known to the general public. The rose was the virgin, Venus and love while the butterfly was transformation and resurrection. These were often related to religious themes. While the genre may have changed, artists have never stopped being fascinated by objects and the meanings behind them. How can objects symbolize and relate to our lives now?  Featuring the works of Blanca Beatriz Caraballo, Rosa Naday Garmendia, JoAnn Nava, Isabel Perez Salazar and Sharon White.
109 NW 5th Street
