Audrey Love Gallery
A Visit with Freda Coffing Tschumy, by Dindy Yokel
On-View September 9 - October 21
For decades, locals and visitors have enjoyed Freda Coffing Tchumy’s commissioned works at Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden (2005) and the Miami-Dade metro system University of Miami stop (1983). Strong Paintings is the first comprehensive survey on the work of this local sculptor and Master of bronze casting. The curatorial focus is put on the gestural, painterly quality of the artist’s experiments, that result in sculptures and two-dimensional objects where she combines bronze and other materials.
“Monolith: The Abasi Rosborough Collection”
MONOLITH by Abasi Rosborough, by Tanya Melendez Escalante
On-View September 9 - October 2
This exhibition showcases the Spring/Summer 2016 collection of designer duo Abdul Abasi and Greg Rosborough inspired by East-West/West-East, a public art installation of bronze monoliths by Richard Serra in the Qatari desert. As colors and textures in the garments communicate this unique life experience, their collection is a perfect embodiment of public art inspiring the creative economy. In a recent New York Times Magazine article, Greg Rosborough states: “when you’re starting a brand, you have to be a product of your own experiences” – expect more from his talk at the Bakehouse!
