The Coral Gables Museum’s Portfolio Review Series is a platform to meet local artists and discuss their ideas and projects. For each edition, 8 to 10 artists are invited to the Museum to share their portfolios, sketchbooks, catalogues, ephemera and other materials in the context of a pop-up exhibition of their work at the Museum’s Community Meeting Room. They will engage in conversations about their working processes and references, past and future projects, dreams, and other topics that go beyond what is typically seen in the gallery. This is an excellent opportunity to network and encourage other collaborations between presenters and attendees!
Each edition of The Portfolio Review Series focuses on a different community of artists. The third presentation in the series will be devoted some of the artists working in the Bakehouse Art Complex.
About the Bakehouse Art Complex
Bakehouse envisions a world that supports and values artists and recognizes their ability to shape, reflect, and transform our world. Its mission is to address the need for affordable live, live-work, and work spaces for artists in Miami’s urban core. Founded in 1985 by artists and for artists in a former industrial Art Deco-era bakery, it provides coveted studio residencies, infrastructure, and community to enable the highest level of artistic creativity, development, and collaboration for the most promising talent.
Currently, the Bakehouse is one of the oldest art studio complexes in Miami and houses approximately 50 studios of varying sizes, two galleries, a classroom, a print room, photography lab, ceramics facilities, and woodworking and welding areas. These spaces, usually unavailable outside of university campuses, have and continue to enable artists to work, make, discover, learn and share their practices with each other and the broader community. Approximately 100 Miami-based resident and associate artists of diverse backgrounds work in the Complex. They work in a range of media, from painting to performance, with their artistic practices varying from traditional to experimental.
