Ever since Lèche-Vitrines Art Gallery (3038 N. Federal Hwy., Times Square Plaza, Second Floor, Fort Lauderdale) set up camp, weve noticed an exciting change in the local art scene namely, that it is flourishing. Most recent proof of this fab phenomenon can be found through Lèches latest assemblage, the Second Juried Art Exhibition.
Only 12 winning artists were selected and given the ultimate prize: coveted gallery wall space. Lèches owner Danielle Lanteigne took great care to pluck a variety of styles from the mountains of applicants, so you wont find yourself staring at wall after wall of (insert your least favorite medium here). Instead youll explore complex community relationships through Jeff Olsons lens; get a taste of primitive-meets-street art with Jeff Riggan; and self-analyze as you appreciate John Frazees Rorschach-esque plant depictions. Its a charming collaboration, and you can catch it through Augusts end. Call 954-563-2993, or visit www.lechevitrinesart.com for hours and appointments.
