Back in 2006, I was an "associate artist" of the Bakehouse. For those of us who wanted to participate in exhibits but did not rent a space there, it was the best compromise: membership, notices, and exhibiting for a yearly fee. We could say we were associated with the Bakehouse, without the cache' of a leased space. With the leadership there changing in 2007, the program was dropped. According to Lauren, the Bakehouse wants to revive the "associate artist" program. I noticed major positive changes to the Bakehouse on Friday, and I would be honored to be juried back into the group!
Most artists were in their studios, doors open, some with snacks, some working, some just enjoying the crowd. The Ceramic League's exhibit was full of superbly crafted work. The art in the hallways were fresh, as the new paint and air conditioning. People were happily milling about, stumbling on new art just around the corners. Dafne and I were there for a couple of hours that felt like a few minutes. We did not take any pictures of us, forgive us for concentrating on the art.
It was impossible to get photos of every artist and/or work we enjoyed. Please visit the Bakehouse, which is open daily and on the second Saturday evenings of each month for the Wynwood Art Walk.
