Guest Exhibit: Summer Salad
on view thru August 29
Girls’ Club presents Summer Salad, an exhibition organized by artist Francie Bishop Good of collage and mixed media in the Girls’ Club Annex Space.
Summer Salad brings together the work of thirteen artists, all except one from South Florida, who use collage and mixed media extensively in their creative practices. Composed of varied materials, the works on view reflect the layered complexity of contemporary life. Navigating surely the most image-overloaded era of human existence, we are each bombarded with densely packed visual material every moment to every day. The works in Summer Salad filter out the essential and meaningful from that barrage of blandness. They allow us to dive into the mix, enjoy all the flavors and textures, while preventing us from consuming too much.

Dogs Days of Summer Seminars
Girls’ Club has organized brief seminars geared towards emerging artists, art students, recent graduates and those looking to beef up their artist repertoire to help equip themselves with the tools, skills and resources necessary to build their careers as professional artists. Led by gallery director Sarah Michelle Rupert, the seminars will focus on a different subject each day. Schedule and registration information below:
This seminar will tackle the subject of artist presentational tools, focusing on building materials that effectively and succinctly communicate your work and intentions including artist statements, professional CVs, photographing artwork, documenting projects, invoicing and similar skills. Participants should bring copies of their current CVs, artist statements, invoices and other materials in hard copy or digital to discuss during the seminar.
This seminar takes a look at life after art school. Most undergraduate programs focus on craft, skill and concept building for young artists and rather than training students for life as a working artist. This seminar will introduce students and recent graduates to different arts-related careers, residencies, grants, internships and open call applications, with a focus on how to approach, apply and research opportunities.
This seminar will provide a brief overview of social media ad website management for artists, discussing the ways in which internet-based platforms, particularly Instagram and Facebook, can serve as a promotional and creative tool while navigating best practices, online etiquette, privacy issues and focused messaging.
All seminars are free of charge. The first hour of each seminar will be lecture-based, followed by an hour of discussion, workshopping and Q&A.
