July 5 Exhibition: Botanical Animalia by Catalina Villegas
Pompano Beach Cultural Center Features Flora and Fauna
An Exhibition by Catalina Villegas: Botanica Animalia

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is pleased to present an exhibition of lively illustrations of the natural world by Catalina Villegas. The exhibit, in conjunction with a showing of Krista Steinke’s work in the cultural center’s main gallery, will be on view in the Hall of the Terrace from April 12, 2019 through July 5, 2019. There will be an opening reception, free to the public, on Friday, April 12, 7-9pm. “We invite our community to come savor the beauty of the natural world as evoked by Catalina Villegas,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Villegas’s work is a beautiful and dynamic complement to the exhibition of Krista Steinke’s art, running concurrently in the gallery at Pompano Beach Cultural Center.”

Featuring buoyant images in black and white, which transition into colorful flora and fauna, Catalina Villega’s work is a vibrant homage to the living things all around her. Villegas was born in Medellin, Colombia and was raised in Miami, Florida. She is an illustrator and surface pattern designer who grew up drawing and painting all of her favorite plants and animals. Her work focuses on exploring the vast diversity of lush flora and fauna found in Colombia and Florida. She has made her life’s purpose to be involved in creative endeavors. Her travels and professional adventures have given her the opportunity to work as a graphic designer for a Colombian menswear line, a freelance photographer in South Florida, and as an illustrator for clients around the world. Her work has been published in various magazines and blogs including WeTransfer.com and UPPERCASE Magazine. She licenses her art to companies that make a range of products including temporary tattoos, seed packets, home decor items, gift wrap and fabric. City of Pompano Beach, Department of Cultural Affairs

Villegas studied Fine Arts at Florida International University, and has completed numerous courses with renowned international art agent Lilla Rogers (Make Art That Sells) and Rachael Taylor (Make it in Design). She has a love for bass guitar, heavy metal, hula-hoops, chai lattes and chihuahuas. She plays the bass in an all-female rock band called Lilith. Catalina currently divides her time between La Ceja, Colombia, and Pompano Beach, Florida.

July 6 Life Drawing Studio
Life Drawing, also referred to as Figure Drawing, is the best and quickest way to improve your drawing skills and your visual perception. Life drawing trains your eye to catch things that photos do not show. Therefore learning to master figure drawing is more than bones and muscles, it is about the subtle differences and minor details such as weight-bearing and positioning that translates to all forms.

We are excited to be able to bring this opportunity to all artists through our new Life Drawing Studio at Bailey Contemporary Arts in the City of Pompano Beach.

During this 2-hour session, live models pose draped for short "gesture" as well as longer poses. This program is ideal for individuals interested in portrait painting, character design, illustration, animation, anatomical drawing, however ALL artists benefit from Life Drawing sessions.

Artists are invited to bring their own materials and supplies.

This activity doesn’t provide formal instruction; participants work at their own pace and in their preferred medium.

Space available for 6 participants per session, so register early!
