A Taste of Jazz at Bailey Contemporary Arts will feature entertaining and educational encounters with the musical genre, accompanied by wine tastings located in an intimate art gallery setting.

The sessions will take place from 7-9 pm on March 7, April 4 and May 2, 2019. Tickets $10-$20 per event.

“A Taste of Jazz is a fun way to learn more about the celebrated musical genre without feeling intimidated or overwhelmed,” said Jody Leshinsky, Cultural Venues Programming Manager. “So many people want to learn more about this original American art form but do not know where to begin. We created this event series for them! And by adding wine tastings from local vendors, it will truly become a fun-filled social event.”

The Gold Coast Jazz Society has been a major presenter of jazz concerts, jazz education and jazz outreach programs in Broward County since 1992. They have maintained and preserved the heritage of jazz by presenting the music celebrating jazz's evolution over the past 100 years.

Session Topics:
April 4

Where in the World is Jazz? – Where did jazz originate and how did it get to what it is today? Join Martin Hand and the trio as they explore the origins of the music of jazz, how it moved throughout America and became the music it is today.

Tamiami Trail Exhibition Opening Reception 6:00pm - 10:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) presents Tamiami Trail: In the Beginning, an exhibition of original artworks by members of the Miami-based Tropical Botanic Artists collective. The exhibit will be on view in the West Gallery/Blooming Bean Coffee Roasters from April 5, 2019 through May 31, 2019. The free opening reception is Friday, April 5, 6pm-10pm during Old Town Untapped.

The botanical subjects were selected to mark the 100th anniversary in 2015 of the start of work on Tamiami Trail, a roadway begun in 1915 in Miami. Today it stretches across the Everglades from Miami to Naples and northward to Tampa, through areas that were largely wilderness a century ago. The exhibition’s more than 30 plant portraits depict species found then and now in multiple vegetation zones along the route. Due to human intervention and changes in water flow, some of the plants illustrated are rare or endangered, and their predominant locations may have shifted, but all persist in South Florida’s landscape.

“We invite our community to dive deep into the discerning talents of the artists capturing the essence of South Florida in plant form," said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Far beyond ‘flower painting,’ botanical artists show the fascinating and soul-stirring intersection of science and art.”

Presented with support from the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the exhibition is the result of the artists’ collaboration with Dr. Evelyn Gaiser of Florida International University, who is principal investigator for the local Florida Coastal Everglades Long Term Ecological Research program.

Artists whose works are featured in the exhibition are Margie Bauer, Kristi Bettendorf, Beverly Borland, Silvia Bota, Marie Chaney, Susan Cumins, Jeanie Daniel Duck, Julio Figueroa, Pauline A Goldsmith, Leo Hernandez, Elsa Nadal, Carol Onstad, Laurie Richardson, Donna Torres and Jedda Wong.

Life Drawing Studio 11:00am - 2:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Life Drawing, also referred to as Figure Drawing, is the best and quickest way to improve your drawing skills and your visual perception. Life drawing trains your eye to catch things that photos do not show. Therefore learning to master figure drawing is more than bones and muscles, it is about the subtle differences and minor details such as weight-bearing and positioning that translates to all forms.

We are excited to be able to bring this opportunity to all artists through our new Life Drawing Studio at Bailey Contemporary Arts in the City of Pompano Beach.

During this 2-hour session, live models pose draped for short "gesture" as well as longer poses. This program is ideal for individuals interested in portrait painting, character design, illustration, animation, anatomical drawing, however ALL artists benefit from Life Drawing sessions.

Artists are invited to bring their own materials and supplies.

This activity doesn’t provide formal instruction; participants work at their own pace and in their preferred medium.

Space available for 6 participants per session, so register early!

Lumen Print Workshop: Cameraless Photography with Sunlight 11:00am - 1:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Lumen printing is a photographic technique where UV light is used as a means to expose an image. A Photogram is a cameraless process that involves placing physical materials directly onto light sensitive paper.

In this workshop, participants will combine both of these approaches to create one of kind prints. The process involves placing vegetation and other found materials directly onto traditional black and white darkroom paper and then exposing to sunlight. Workshop will begin with a short 30-minute lecture on the historical process and will include examples from contemporary artists who are working with alternative photographic methods. Each participant will leave with approx. 4-5 prints, including 4x6 postcard prints reading to send in the mail.

Participants will need to bring found objects to create work. Transparent materials work especially well. Plant samples and vegetation will also create unique markings on the paper. Other ideas: glue, Vaseline, bubbles, and nontoxic liquids.
