Spotlight on Girls' Club

117 NE 2 Street 

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.

Purple: Judges
Blue: Fellow Artists
Yellow: General Public
Pink: Kids

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 at Deadline, Friday, Oct 16, 5pm.

In the mezzanine, Girls' Club is also hosting a super sale of past exhibition catalogs as well as limited edition copies from its Artists in Action Series. All previous catalog $20. All limited edition artist multiples, $20 off.

at World and Eye Arts Center, 109 NW 5th St

THINGS THAT GO BUMP…   This exhibits is about fear. Fear has existed as part of our nature from first humans on into todays world. Fear can protect us from danger, be a  reaction to injustice, or a force that pits nations against each other. Fear spans global issues like climate change or can be the personal irrational fears we hold in dreams and dark corners. World and Eye celebrates artists that expose these fearful places as exploration, confrontation or hope.   Guests will also get to play with their own interactive mural of fears.

Taking Measure of Chance and Outcomes, Flex 2: When presenting a group exhibition, the curatorial role is generally to encourage the question: why are these artworks together? This is not this kind of exhibition. Here, curator Meg Kaplan-Noach challenges her own role by utilizing the concept of curation-by-chance as an exhibition-organizing methodology. She actively works to remove a unifying theme, instead exploring the subtleties of serendipity. Artists: Leah Brown, Christian Feneck, Virginia Fifield, Bonney Goldstein, Henning Haupt, Donna Haynes and Peter Symons.

The Mockingbird Trail is South Florida's first urban art exploration-based project! Created by Cadence, with help from Girls' Club and the Flagler Village Community Garden, the Mockingbird Trail invites the community to get out and explore and will launch Phase 1 during Art Fallout 2015.

Spotlight on Glavovic Studio

724 NE 3 Avenue

The Margi Glavovic Nothard Studio and Glavovic Studio presents Flow, a dynamic exhibition and installation during Art Fallout 2015.

Inspired by the shifts, movement and life in the New River of Broward County, Flow is a large-scale public art project that connects the river and the community to the new Broward County Courthouse, embracing the public access Breezeway below the parking structure and the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The New River uniquely runs from the Everglades to the Atlantic Ocean, entirely within Broward County, Florida. This vernacular feature, equal in width to the Breezeway FLOW occupies, provides inspiring tangible elements translated into textures and patterns applied to forms that modulate to accommodate seating, walkways and activated areas.

The project’s vitality travels the floor and wall surfaces creating a dynamic envelope inviting the public to experience FLOW. In addition to form and color, lighting activates the space as an integral part of the experience. Broad views making connections beyond the space, integrate the larger context of the Courthouse, the City and the Community. This project provides the community an urban hub in which everyone pauses, reconnects and re-exchanges with the environment and each other.

Founded in 1999, Glavovic Studio Inc. is an award-winning Architecture and Design Studio located in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Glavovic Studio explores and produces contemporary architecture, art and urban design, focusing on exceptional creative processes and client oriented services that engage the environment and provide social value.

Local projects from Nothard and Glavovic Studio include the renovation design of Girls' Club, the NSU Bridge Stair / Art Plaza_Threshold at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, ArtsPark at Young Circle in Hollywood, Young at Art Museum/Broward County Library with AECOM in Davie and the recently completed affordable housing project Kennedy Homes on Broward Blvd between 9th and 11th Avenues.
