Buzzed on Canvas

Some artwork is best viewed in a gallery, with a buffer of velvet rope providing a more analytical perspective. Other pieces — like the sort hanging at Undergrounds Coffeehaus — require plush seating, conversation, and loads of caffeine to properly distill. The bohemian coffee dive will have those things in spades when local, undiscovered artists Brittany Smith and Rodolphe Mardy host a tandem exhibition of their art Saturday night at 9. Smith is a student at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and an aspiring children’s book illustrator; Mardy is a Haitian native who cites God as his inspiration. Both produce the kind of colorful, off-kilter art best viewed (and purchased) with mug firmly in hand.

Find Undergrounds at 2743 E. Oakland Park Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. The show is free, and an artwork raffle will go down at 11 p.m. for $1 a ticket. Call 954-630-1900.
