If you’ve been following my social sites for the past couple months or even my updates on here, I’ve mentioned about working for the Bakehouse Art Complex in downtown Miami, FL.
The Bakehouse is a non-profit organization that houses over 50 artists with their own studios, and monthly exhibition galleries, and art classes taught by the artists themselves. The shot above is from December’s exhibit, “If A Tree Falls, A Chain Reaction…,” held in the Audrey Love Gallery.
The name itself is based off of what came before it.
The Complex used to be the American Bakery Company back in the 1920’s up until the early 80’s. If you look carefully, you still see parts that remain from the old bakery, including the trademark silos which were painted by legendary street artist DEPOE.
Artists from all over the world, and not to mention locals as well, have studios here. During our events, it basically becomes an open house as most of the artists will be in attendance and guests can come in and just chat and find out about their creative process.
From sculptures to paintings to photography, whatever media or style you are in to, the Bakehouse has something for everyone.
Another shot of the main Gallery. This one is from our many student shows. Bakehouse works with charter school from the area and gives the young artists a place to help get them a nice push into the art world. It is definitely a great first step as the kids have their own art show and see their work up on the walls of a big time art complex.
The Bakehouse was also featured on all the local stations, Travel Channel, and many publications like Irreversible just to name a few.
Just a couple more shots of the studios and walls of the Bakehouse.
So if you’re in the downtown Miami area, come by and check out the Bakehouse Art Complex! Especially during our event and show times, that is when it is a must-see! I am definitely happy to work here and I just wanted to talk about it because it is something I am very proud of being a part of.
