BaCa exhibit explores idea of borders

By Elizabeth Roberts

On Aug. 21, just as the summer vacation ends and school begins, Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCa) in Pompano Beach will begin preparing for an upcoming season that begins with an exploration of “borders,” be it physical or geographic limitations.

It opens with a reception on Sept. 1 to kick off a global exhibit that explores the theme of borders through ceramics and mixed media. Running through Sept. 29, the collaboration between Bailey Arts and the Ad Visual Arts Academy in Iran. The Sept. 1 reception begins during the Old Town Untapped event from 6 to 9 p.m.

In addition, four international curators were called to collaborate with a sub-theme of “frontiers,” and also have them invite artists in their country to hold similar exhibitions.

Local artist Sarah Benichou was selected and has organized a prestigious array of artists to present works in ceramics and mixed media. Other countries participating in this global initiative include Japan, Turkey and France.

The exhibit opens on Sept. 1 at BaCa, 41 N.E. First St. in Pompano Beach. Exhibit times are Tuesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
