Oh ye olde melting pot analogy. We have all types of folks in South Florida. Though there are locals aplenty, it's those who have decided to make South Florida their new home who remain the majority. Among the many adopted residents is Francie Bishop Good. Good was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and raised not far away, in Allentown. But these days, like many snowbirds before her, Good is splitting her time between sunny South Florida and the Big Apple.
Now Good is tracing back to her roots and opening her latest photographic exhibit, called "Not on Allen Street." The series is based on domestic inhabitancy and learning about oneself, but that's not all she has been working on. A video of her new digital animation will be projected outside, adding another medium to the mix. Toss in four more artists displaying works they are proud of and you have yourself a quadruple serving of culture. Included in that set is Samantha Brooks, whose "1000 Missed Connections" series takes a stab at the most entertaining Craigslist posts. So don't worry your little head about an art overload, because everything comes back to the internet.
The opening artists' reception for the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood to present Francie Bishop Good, Charles LaBelle, Melissa Fredendall, Sarah Michelle Rupert, and Samantha Brooks will be Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, located at 1650 Harrison St. Admission is $10 for nonmembers and free for members. Call 954-921-3274, or visit artandculturecenter.org.
