Artist of the Month Reception: Gerard Pastor is happening on Friday, March 03, 2023 at 06:00PM EST at Bailey Contemporary Arts Center and It's Free
As part of the City's Artists in Residence Program located at BaCA, each month an Artist of the Month is selected and exhibited in the West Gallery Window Display as well as the Second Floor Gallery. Gerard Pastor is the featured the Artist of the Month for March. Pastor utilizes colored pencils to create stunning works of art inspired by the Lucumi religion, which survived the slave trade era. Often mired in secrecy and negative perceptions, the Afro-Caribbean faith serves as a creative force for Pastor who looks to inspire understanding. During his residency at BaCA, Pastor will focus his work on the study of how women participate in religion and how religion is used as a patriarchal tool to elevate men, when historically the innate power of survival has been through women.
This Opening Reception takes place during Pompano Beach's Old Town Untapped which also features live music by local bands and a local DJ, additional art gallery openings at Bailey Contemporary Arts Center, craft beer, food trucks, and artist vendors selling unique and artistic merchandise.
