Join us for a new kind of combo! 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 introduction to jazz series will showcase the musicians of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band, under the direction of Martin Hand.

The sessions will take place from 7-9 pm on March 7, April 4, May 2, June 6, July 11 (due to the July 4th Holiday, the July event is the second Thursday), August 1, September 5, 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.

Sheer Intuition Art Exhibition Opening Reception 6:00pm - 10:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts West Gallery

Intuition is a deep impression, insight or understanding. Much like our own intuition Andrea Huffman uses the translucency of silk organza in her fiber art as a metaphor for seeing what lies beneath the façade.  Drawing upon her own creative and intuitive spirit, Huffman uses a variety of techniques on fabric, including hand dyeing, printmaking, painting, digital photography along with hand and machine stitching, to convey her impressions of the natural world and the passing of time.

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!

General Admission $20

Making Your Mark Workshop 11:00am - 2:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

This workshop is beginner friendly and open to all - at least 50% of workshop space is reserved for artists with disabilities. Fast, flexible, and adaptive portable approaches for building and printing images will be explored as tools for documentation, social commentary, and community-building. Participants will work together to create a series of large-scale collaborative prints, and a print to take home.

The workshop will begin with a discussion of contemporary works that use printmaking as a tool for political and social activism, and a demonstration of simple monoprint, collagraph, and relief techniques. All of the techniques learned can be completed indoors or out, without a printing press and using only a small set of easy-to-transport tools.

Artist Bio: Rebeka Burns is a community-based artist and educator with 10 years of experience facilitating arts programming in hospitals, museums, prisons and shelters. She currently leads art programs for artists with disabilities at the Palm Beach Habilitation Center in Lake Worth.
