John Bailly: The City
Now Showing
Exhibition Continues Through November 14, 2014


John Bailly, Tohu Bohu, Oil on Canvas

John Bailly presents bold large scale paintings of the city that recast Miami's emergence as a world class destination.

Bailly considers both the large contemporary metropolis and cities of the past with meticulous imagery, historical references and visual elements from maps, streets and buildings to reframe our idea of the city. Referencing Troy, Mexico City, Rome, and Paris Bailly shows new ways to see the metropolis when its physical, commercial, and cultural frontiers no longer have easily identifiable boundaries. Bailly's work often incorporates multiple views of a single city to reflect the multiple voices and perceptions through the city's history. His paintings invite us to make connections through the historical references the artist incorporates and project them to our own realm.

He uses the newly unearthed archaeology of the Tequesta Indian Settlement on the Miami River to link Miami to its roots and ground our idea of who we have become. Press release here.

CVC Sponsors Photography Program at Biscayne Nature Center
Photo class at Biscayne Nature Center with instructor Jahaira Galvez
Students discuss class photo project with prints they developed.

CVC designed a new photography curriculum for Biscayne Nature Center's month long summer camp for 4th graders that tied into the camp's science and ecology themes. Students used 20 new Canon digital cameras donated by CVC to make photos of the diverse ecosystem areas of Key Biscayne that surround the Nature Center. This pilot project will serve as a model for year-round programs at the Nature Center. We are pleased to report that the program was the subject of a full page feature in the Miami Herald and that an advanced photo program for next year's summer camp is already in the works. See student photos here.

Vintage Bettie Page at Bunny Yeager Studio
Bunny Yeager, Bettie Brushing Hair, 1954.

Vintage Bettie Page features never before seen photographs of Pin-Up icon Bettie Page by photographer Bunny Yeager.  

Bunny Yeager is the legendary model, photographer, writer and swimsuit designer whose pictures of Bettie Page catapulted both Page and Yeager to fame in 1954.  The publication of Yeager's centerfold photo of Bettie Page in Playboy launched Yeager's photographic career and began a lifelong friendship with Hugh Hefner, the magazine's publisher. Her groundbreaking work inspired new generation of photographers from Cindy Sherman to those who shoot swimsuit models outdoors for Sports Illustrated.

Clyde Butcher
From mountain waterfalls to lush green jungles, from grassy swamps to sandy beaches Butcher's photographs reveal the seductive beauty, subtle grandeur and majesty of America's landscape and now Cuba's untouched heritage. Butcher's photographs seem larger than life, like the artist himself, and compel us to step into the places he depicts. His unique talent is that he sees and feels vistas that sing the spirit of place.Oxbow Bend by Clyde ButcherClyde Butcher, Oxbow Bend, 2011, Silver Gelatin Photograph, 36 x 60
