Frida - Parker Playhouse

Thursday, Mar 28, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

Robert Xavier Rodríguez’s colorful score is a perfect match for the passionate art of the legendary painter Frida Kahlo.

Although the artist was wracked by agonizing physical pain and caught up in a stormy marriage to Diego Rivera, the flame that fueled Kahlo’s art just kept burning and never turned to ash. She created fifty-five self-portraits. But no portrait of her is quite as revealing as the one in Rodríguez’s opera.

"Crazy for You features show-stopping musical numbers, fabulous songs and a tender and hilarious plot revolving around a love triangle," said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer. "With a score by the Gershwins, who could ask for anything more?"

This fast-paced, energetic extravaganza features lyrics by Ira Gershwin, music by George Gershwin, and book by Ken Ludwig. Billed as "The New Gershwin Musical Comedy," it is largely based on the songwriting team's 1930 musical, Girl Crazy, but incorporates songs from several other productions as well. Crazy for You won the 1992 Tony for Best Musical, the 1993 Olivier Award (London) and 1994 Dora Award (Toronto) for Best Musical.

The plot revolves around a well-to-do young New Yorker, Bobby Child, who is sent to Nevada to foreclose on a theatre owned by the family business. Falling in love with the local postmistress, Bobby decides to produce a show to save the theatre. Showgirls and cowboys deliver beloved classic songs including "Embraceable You," "I Got Rhythm," "Nice Work if You Can Get It," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," and the heartbreaking ballad "But Not For Me."

Crazy for You is being directed by Norb Joerder with choreography by David Wanstreet, and stars Julie Kleiner and Matt Loehr.

Empowered Women at BaCA

Bailey Contemporary Arts Presents a Solo Exhibition by Florencia Clement de Grandprey. Her Empowered Women Series Portrays Strong, Elegant and Proud Ladies.

  • February 1 – March 30 l FREE

Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) begins the celebration Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day a little early with a dramatic and colorful solo exhibition by Florencia Clement de Grandprey. The local artist has dedicated much of her career to projecting positive and inspiring images of women. This exhibition will be on view in the West Gallery/Blooming Bean Coffee Roaster from February 1-March 30, 2019.

“A large portion of my artwork is dedicated to projecting a positive and inspiring image of women by portraying strong, elegant and proud ladies. My series of Empowered Women began in 2014 and continues today,” said Grandprey. “This collection includes a tribute to all the amazing mothers who fight to bring up physically and emotionally healthy children, to confident women who are comfortable with their bodies, to natural beauties proud of their heritage, and to those of us who are different and don’t necessarily “fit” in to societal standards. You will find my contribution is uplifting and empowering, sometimes a little daring, but always tasteful.” Born and raised in southern Spain, Florencia is the daughter of an American mother and a French/Italian father. Now living in Pompano Beach, the self-taught mixed media artist’s mission is to empower and inspire through positive and meaningful artwork.

“We are delighted to be showcasing Florencia’s work,” explained curator Juliana Forero. “This is an exhibition where visitors will be embraced by images of strong women. Most of the images are facing the viewer directly with an inviting gaze, almost like a playful challenge to sustain it. Florencia’s background as a professional makeup artist, adds a dramatic beauty to each piece, while simultaneously celebrating her subjects as ‘perfectly imperfect beings.’’’

Grandprey produces mixed media paintings by incorporating, up-cycling and repurposing materials that would otherwise be disposed of such as discontinued fabric and paper samples. The myriad of colors, textures, and mesmerizing patterns found in these samples inspires her choice of materials and reveals her main techniques: the first is painting on canvas with materials added to a painted figure; the second is painted directly on upholstery fabric, where the pattern of the fabric becomes intertwined with the image.

“When I paint, I’m painting as much for myself as for others, because I know there is a lot of pain and suffering that needs healing in every single one of us. I am in every one of my paintings, and hope that others can recognize themselves in at least one of them too, and so, as I heal myself, maybe, just maybe, I can ease someone else’s pain as well,” stated Grandprey.

Without Labels

Thursday, Mar 28, 2019 at 10:00 AM - English

The Historic Ali Cultural Arts is proud to present Without Labels, an exhibition exploring views of identity and cultural perception. The exhibition features the photographs of Jamie Robertson and works on paper by Shawna Moulton and runs from February 15-April 12, 2019.

Opening Reception: Friday, February 15, 6-8pm, artist talk 7pm.

"We are delighted to showcase the works of these talented artists, who through their research and art answer their own questions about identity and cultural perception," said curator Juliana Forero.

"As each artist peels away different cultural labels to discover their own identities, they invite the viewer to take that same journey of reflection and exploration."Jamie Robertson's Making Reference is an ongoing photographic series of self-portraits influenced by representations of Black Women in art history and popular culture. Ethnographic photographs from the Caribbean, South America and North America along with paintings from those regions serve as reference points for Robertson's self-portraits.

"Using my body and adornments such as gold hoop earrings, eyeliner and orchids, I explore my perceived identity and question how I see myself versus how others see me," said Robertson.

"This series allows me to explore the history of Black Women in the Americas and how they were seen while simultaneously allowing me the agency of self-representation to confront perceptions of my own identity."Shawna Moulton creates delicate works made from paper she makes herself, which she then embellishes with water colors and ink drawings. Moulton, who teaches the ancient art of papermaking at workshops throughout South Florida, also creates sculptures from paper, including life-size masks which depict both distinct and indistinct facial features."I create what I feel is truly important " me as my pure self," said Moulton.

"Who am I without a name, race, gender or any given label? It's like picturing a color you have never seen but know it exists."
