Opening date is November 5, 2021, from 6-10 pm, with headlining band The Beatlemaniax USA. Learn more at www.pompanobecharts.org.
November’s Live Band: The Beatlemaniax USA
The Beatlemaniax USA captures the look and excitement of a real Beatles concert that most people haven’t had the pleasure to experience. Wearing the unique style clothing and hair that their mentors wore during their concert career, the band plays the same brand/model instruments the Beatles used, while per-forming an array of classic hits from the touring years, in addition to some later classic songs.
Silent Spaces is an exhibition by Janet Onofrey that celebrates the changing landscape of South Florida and invites us to observe the places that we constantly inhabit and that we rarely reflect on. Living a fast-paced life, our vision is trained to seek for content, filtering out objects and details that become irrelevant. The ‘plein air’ paintings and drawings featured in this exhibition, represent a moment in time, giving a voice to these urban settings, which are constantly present.
Onofrey’s work has been selected for national exhibitions such as the American Impressionist Society and American Women Artists and she is a member of the Oil Painters of America and Plein Air Florida. She was featured in “New American Paintings, Juried Exhibitions-In-Print” and her paintings reside in both public and private collections nationally.
The Island Imprint is a collection of photo art images by Jamaican photographer David I. Muir and painters Mark Cameron and Charles “Mark Phi” Smart. The works included in the exhibition re-present themes from music and entertainment which are at the core of the Jamaican spirit. The works also reflect scenes from the Jamaican American experience along with concepts of universal strength and happiness from a Jamaican mind. The project reflects the breadth of perspectives held by “yardies” in the U.S. on beauty, culture and representation.
