April 27 “GuiteauART” by Tracy Guiteau
The GuiteauArt Fashion event will be hosted by Jason “JaFleu” Fleurant a curator, poet, writer and founder of Exhibit Treal. The evening which will feature a cocktail reception, performance by The Dada National Slam Poetry artists and a fashion show showcasing the designs of Haitian artist Tracy Guiteau. The designer received her BFA degree from the renowned Rhode Island School of Design and then studied abroad at the University of Westminister in London, England.

Guiteu’s work has been featured on local TV stations and newspapers and reflects the soul of a revolutionary and is a self-portrait of her life, which means it is consistently evolving and changing to answer to the evolution of a creative mind. Each piece of fabric and brush stroke exposes an unseen part from within. As a young child expressing emotions was considered a weakness and privacy was nonexistent. As the oldest, when words failed her art was her outlet. Every piece were personal pages of her dairy on to canvas and a visual celebration of the essence of being alive. Within each painting hid words that hinted the journaling under each painting. The fabric of each of her designs were prints of her paintings.

She aims to keep her paintings and fashion graceful and wealthy with color, and hints of complexity by use of detail lines. Guiteau challenges the viewer to go deeper than the surface by hiding words coded in plain sight. Her art is created so that her viewer’s imagination can explore a world where their mind can wander but still be reminded by her message.

Tickets: $15 at the door.

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Ali Cultural Arts, 353 Martin Luther King Blvd

April 29 Visions + Verse" Exhibit
Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) is proud to present “Visions & Verse,” an exhibition featuring both the artistic works of Mimi Botscheller and the poetry of local written artists. “Visions & Verse” is a collaboration between the visual and written arts, aimed to inspire emerging poets to view and explore the evolving narratives in Botscheller’s collage works. The exhibited collages are composed of several layers as a result of the artist’s creative process, and therefore evoke different stories and ideas for each viewer. Visitors are encouraged to submit original poems inspired by a specific work. Calvin “madeS.O.N.” Early, the poetry curator, will select the winning poems which will be presented at the showcase on April 29th. “To celebrate National Poetry Month, we are delighted to bring together the visual and the literary as we invite poets to interpret pieces and create a poem directly related to one of Mimi’s works,” said Grace Gdaniec, Exhibition Curator and Acting Director. “We are honored to have Mimi’s creations be the inspiration for the poets and to have Calvin “madeS.O.N. Early as our poetry curator.” Mimi Botsheller’s featured works in “Visions & Verse” explore her process of evolving narratives in the form of collage. While repurposing visual fragments of paper, photo, digital media and mixed media, new images are created in what she calls “visual accidents.” Her works have been featured in numerous gallery exhibition and museum competitions from Miami to Palm Beach. And her paintings, which combine Eastern and Western ideologies, with multiple points of view, have been shown nationally and internationally. “Viewers will find themselves taken on a unique journey with each piece,” said Gdaniec. “With inspiration from the art in the exhibition, we are seeking poetry submissions based upon a single work. These submissions will be reviewed by Calvin, and the winning poems will be read at the showcase on April 29th. The top three submissions will be awarded cash prizes.” Calvin “madeS.O.N.” Early is an internationally recognized speaker/spoken word artist with more than 10 years experience in youth development and community relations. In the fall of 2013, Calvin broke ground on his company iCHOOSEgreatness, whose mission is to motivate, inspire and ultimately push individuals to challenge their self-imposed limitations. Calvin has been interviewed by literary icon Maya Angelou on Oprah Winfrey Radio, been a guest on Lifetime TV’s “The Balancing Act,” and a featured speaker at colleges, universities and various youth serving agencies across the country and abroad.
