The Portfolio Review Series is a platform for our community to engage with local artists in Miami. In this third edition, we feature artists from 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, Bakehouse Art Complex provides studio residencies, infrastructure, and community to enable the highest level of artistic creativity, development, and collaboration for the most promising talent.
The Bakehouse is comprised of approximately 100 resident and associate artists, deriving from a rich diversity of backgrounds. Their work represents a broad range of media and practices, from painting to performance, from traditional to experimental.
Bakehouse is one of the oldest artist-serving organizations in Miami, with studios of varying sizes, two galleries, a classroom, print room, photography lab, ceramics facilities, and woodworking, and welding areas. These spaces, unavailable outside of university campuses, has and continues to enable artists to work, make, discover, learn, and share their practices and work with each other and the broader community.

Join us and partake in conversations on their working processes and references, past and future projects, ideas, and further beyond what is seen in the gallery. This is an excellent opportunity to network and encourage other collaborations over a good glass of wine.
