Art: Fair and Squared

While previous themes for shows at Bear and Bird Gallery have hit on everything from revenge fantasies and tattoo art to candy apples and razor blades, the call to artists this time around went a little something like this: “Artwork for the show can be any subject matter or theme, but art must be perfectly square in size.” To participate in the locals-only, biannual “Be There Be Square: Open Subject Matter, Square in Size,” artists including Chili D, Carrie Ochoa-Gomez, Mission From God, Todd Nolan, and Yoko Yabe created whatever their little hearts desired with one tiny exception — the canvas is a perfect square, no larger than 12 by 12.

The show will run through February 26 at 4566 N. University Drive in Lauderhill. Call 954-748-0181, or visit tatescomics.com/bearandbird.
Sat., Jan. 15, 6 p.m.; Jan. 16-Feb. 26, 2011
