Two by Four: Building the Perfect Morning Escape

Some mornings you just need to play hooky, buy a fancy coffee drink, and lose a spindle’s worth of moments inside an art gallery. It’s just good for the soul. Lucky for you the Fine Arts Gallery at Broward Community College (Central Campus, 3501 SW Davie Rd., Davie) has you covered (for the art, anyway). Its newest exhibit Two by Four is a museum-grade blending of mediums, fresh out of the studio, off the kiln, from the loom, or out of editing.

As the name indicates, each of the four artists chosen: William Kidd, Camilo Ramirez, Sean Smith, and Liliana Crespi have submitted two works, but that’s where the similarities end. While Sean Smith uses less conventional materials like tea and building supplies to delicately punctuate his canvases with hills and valleys, Liliana Crespi suspends her delicate wire and fiber installations to hang from ceiling to near-ground – dangling like legless textile hosiery. Kidd’s geometric ceramics tease and toy with negative space, while Ramirez’ video micro-landscapes play on magnification and repetition to expose tiny worlds within otherwise common places like puddles. You just have to pick up the coffee and excuse to get out of work; the gallery is free to the public. Open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Call 954-201-6984.
