How would you sum up South Florida life through art? A poutine-based finger painting? A seashell sculpture depicting financial pyramid schemes? A foreclosed sandcastle? Whatever your approach, its a tricky task.
Bear and Bird Boutique + Gallery likes keeping our local creative types on their toes, so for its current exhibit, The Sunshine Show, the boutique/gallery space laid out a challenge: Spark up that gray matter, create a piece on the topic of SoFla life, and get a space on our walls. The diversity of interpretation was overwhelming: More than 120 artists submitted work, with media ranging from acrylic and photography to cut paper and sock flamingos. Take a vitamin D-laced gander at creations by Dan Woodruff, Helena Garcia, N! Satterfield, Todd Nolan, and scores upon scores of other budding artists. Bear and Bird is located inside Tates Comics at 4566 N. University Drive in Lauderhill. The Sunshine Show runs through April 17. Free. Call 954-748-0181, or visit bearandbird.com.
