Graphicstudio USF, a Gem

For those of you art lovers, you may be surprised to learn that one of the preeminent print making studios in the country is in Tampa. For over 50 years Graphicstudio USF has hosted an Artists in Residence program with such luminaries as Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Dine, Alex Katz, James Rosenquist and others. And then there’s a benefit sale in May where you can snag great buys. I first heard about this at the INK Miami Art Fair at Art Basel and then made a trip to Tampa to see it and find out more. And if you like what you read and can’t make it to Tampa, they’ll be at this year’s  INK Art Fair.

Not to Be Missed Miami Art Exhibits

Do not miss these top four Miami art exhibits at The Bass, ICA, PAMM and MOCA. Whatever your medium of choice, there’s an exhibit for you — furniture, fiber sculpture, sculptures with found objects, tapestries, paintings, photography– you name it. There’s even a barbershop where you can get a haircut!  For my tastes, they are some of the best exhibits in awhile, and happen to be all at once. Just in time, too, for summer when it just seems there’s more time.

A Day in Overtown: Where to Visit, Eat, Stay,and Entertain

Places to visit, where to eat, where to stay, entertainment, and the annual not to be missed event:  here’s your guide for a day exploring Overtown, one of Miami’s most historic areas. There’s no better neighborhood to find authentic soul food or experience an amateur night showcase that’s modeled after the historic Apollo Theater’s long-running one in New York City. And rivaling Wynwood’s famous street murals are those of the late artist Purvis Young, born in Overtown. The building façades and architecture harken back to the early 1900s when black performers played, ate and stayed here. A new B & B, too, a bargain at rates starting at $100 a night.

From Bakehouse to Art House

If you’re involved or very interested in the art world in Miami, you know the Bakehouse Miami. And if you aren’t, you could think it’s a bakery. Actually, it was one of the first industrialized bakeries in Miami along with Holsum. Since 1985 the Art-Deco era building has been serving artists with studios and others who have access to using the organization’s dedicated spaces for making art. You may also buy directly from the artists there.  If you have any interest in art, you won’t want to miss a visit for one of their quarterly Open Studio evenings, where guests can visit all of the artists in their spaces.  They also offer classes, exhibits, and the space can be visited every day.
