Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC) on Friday Night

My sister Dafne asked if I wanted to visit the Bakehouse Art Complex this past Friday night to enjoy the Ceramic League of Miami's group show. YES!!!! The complex has always had some wonderful artists!

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.

What type of Artists do they use/have? Is it hands on art (painting, sculpting)... How often do they do shows etc? Great to hear that they may be starting up the program again that can help you.

Jason: They have a bit of every kind of art you can imagine - sculptures, paintings, mixed media, photos, etc. Metal work, ceramics, fiber, you name it, you can find some of it at the Bakehouse.

Shows are usually monthly, but they may have more than that.
