Arts Du Jour: Carla Fache, Terry O'Neill

Goings On Around Town


The Container Space

It's a small exhibiting space in SW Miami. The Container Space is intimate and concentrates on finding the right artist to fill the gallery environment with each person's special energy.

This experimental artists' enclave has established a tiny artist niche off of 11th Avenue and SW 6th Street in Miami. Rotating talented painters and sculptors that need a temporary showroom, have managed to form a collaborative nest there and make sharing their works an important part of the community. They are a determined group of creators, which include a theater ensemble, several learning spaces, a dance area and a small gallery. Painters, sculptors and mixed media artists invite friends and family to this unique ARTs environment for drinks, conversations and mingling, which takes place during the monthly opening night receptions.

Carla Fache, a fearless, Chilean born, spiritual painter is presently sharing her "energy filled" paintings with collectors and friends at the space. She is part of the Fountainhead Studios Group (7339 NW Miami CT., 33150); consisting of innovative people, who work in a NW atelier, yet exhibit around the world. Her works are on view through January and part of February 2015 at the Container Space.

Terry O'Neill Photo Exhibit

I had the pleasure of attending a reception celebrating the worldwide premiere of BIG: Terry O'Neill photo exhibit in Wynwood on Friday Jan. 16 and was amazed at the "larger than life" photos of Hollywood royalty; the likes of Raquel Welch on a cross, Faye Dunaway posing with her Oscar the "morning after", members of the Rat Pack, Frank, Dean and Sammy caught totally unaware, Elizabeth Taylor lighting a cigarette for David Bowie, Audrey Hepburn in the famous pool scene during the shooting of "Two For The Road" (she was scared of drowning), Steve McQueen's hateful stare into O'Neill's lens among many others.

Each photo had a fascinating story to go along with it which made it the more enjoyable.

This reception attracted many art lovers, photographers and members of the media, and it is bound to be a great success as it tours.
