Community Gallery

The Community Gallery affords the opportunity for amateur artists to gain widespread exposure to arts patrons, professional artists, educators and community members. The Gallery showcases original works of art by students and/or community groups in the Center’s upstairs gallery. These group exhibitions are presented at no cost to K-12 schools and Early Childhood Centers located in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Community organizations are also invited to exhibit artwork in the space. Each exhibition is created and curated by the community groups and/or teacher from the school and is on display for 3 to 4 weeks. During the summer months, we feature artwork from the Center’s summer camp participants.

Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are now closed.

A Century Later
This annual exhibition was created by South Broward High School art students in grades 10-12. Most of the students featured in the exhibit are members of South Broward High’s National Art Honor Society and are dedicated to making and learning about art. The students researched and discussed the period of time in American History around the Roaring Twenties. Their photography, drawings, paintings and sculptures revolve around this topic and include images that show fashion statements, political ideas, cars, film, art styles and more. The students, most of whom are graduating in spring, 2020, came up with the title based on the theme.

Depiction
NSU University School | Davie, FL
Digital Photography Senior Students curated by Brian Gefen

This exhibition highlights images created by a group of Senior Digital Photography students who have been in the program for multiple years. All of the images in this exhibition have been digitally manipulated in some way. Creating these digital compositions is not only a technical challenge – it is also a conceptual challenge. The students were tasked with composing digital images that not only expressed their personal vision, but also showcased their photographic and technical skills. By titling this exhibition Depiction, these images were chosen to best illustrate the students’ photographic and digital talent.
