At Girls' Club
Girls’ Club presents the annual open-call exhibition Unframed, an exhibition of works on paper with a special public feedback element by way of color-coded sticky notes. As a private collection and alternative exhibition space, this is a rare opportunity for artist to submit and exhibit with this unique institution.
South Florida artists of all levels, genders, and backgrounds are invited to submit artworks for a one-day, open-call visual art exhibition of unframed works on paper. Artists are encouraged to submit new, experimental or in-progress works to take advantage of the unique feedback element provided.
The public, and a panel of informal judges - curators, collectors, gallery owners, art writers, professors, museum professional - will leave public comments on the wall near artworks through a color coded Sticky Note system.
Blue: Fellow Artists
Yellow: General Public
Breaking down perceived barriers between audience and artist, Art Fallout, Unframed encourages an expanded and inclusive dialogue about contemporary art and our local art scene.
Submission form and information below.
Deadline, Friday, Oct 17, 5pm.
Chicks with Discs
Upstairs in the mezzanine, Radio-Active Records presents a pop-up gallery with guest DJs. Organized by Natalie Smallish, Chicks with Discs is an audio and visual exhibition of vintage, rare and beloved vinyl records from local female record collectors.
No longer are the labyrinth-ed halls and stacked racks of record stores the domain solely of the 'high fidelity' stereotype of the obsessive male. The aisles at Radio-Active, and the block-long lines for special events, have been increasingly gender balanced, with female collectors not only holding their own, but amassing an evermore eclectic mix of vinyl. The diverse showcase includes LPs by Black Sabbath, Joy Division, the Killers, Grover Washington Jr., Dolly Parton and Bob Dylan.
Francie Bishop Good Studio
Adjacent to Girls’ Club, the studio of Francie Bishop Good will open to the public from 5-9pm showcasing new work from the accomplished Fort Lauderdale-based artist. For information about Francie Bishop Good visit: www.franciebishopgood.com.
Super Duper Grub Food Truck and Gramps Bar
Food truck Super Duper Grub will be on hand, serving kid-friendly, health-conscious food.
Mini Gramps, a nomadic pop-up bar by Gramps Bar in Wynwood will be on hand serving ice cold beer and cocktails for a suggested donation.
