Studio 18 hosted a Paint Social for Young Professionals of the Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce. Everyone discovered the artist within and they all went home with a really cool hand painted glass.
With the first beat of the drums we all knew we were in for a treat. At the opening reception, we got to hear from the artists as they spoke about their magnificent paintings and shared the rich history behind the movement. We learned that this was their first time in America and we felt their enthusiasm.
We mixed and mingled, tasted a sampling of African cuisine, had a sip of wine and then we danced….

My transitions showpieces offer a glimpse into my creative process and the relationship between my drawing and sculptures. My sculptures bring to life the shape of water by transforming flat satellite images of Florida waterways into constructed wood forms: while my drawings bring to life the energy of flowing water that often goes unnoticed. This interplay between the physical presence of the sculptural works and the energy of the drawings makes Florida’s waterways difficult to ignore. Michael Harris
This series is particularly meaningful to me. These graphite pencil and watercolor paintings of ballerinas were originally intended for a show in August 2013 at Studio 18 in the Pines, called “On Common Ground”. I had initially simply wanted to create a series of beautiful images of ballerinas and the “common ground” was the stage they performed on. However, my entire focus changed somewhat when I began to experience some serious personal health issues and had to request to be excused from the “On Common Ground” exhibition at Studio 18. I continued to work on the series, though I was experiencing a great deal of pain, fear and uncertainty about my life expectancy…but I kept working on them. And then suddenly I was seeing this kind of parallel- I was feeling so much pain and feeling so unwell, why was I even persisting in painting and drawing this series everyday? And then as I studied all of these images of these beautiful ballerinas I wanted to draw, I could see the pain that they suffered through to create this phenomenal Art form. I could see the strained and aching muscles; understand the “work through the pain” mentality that drives these women in the creation and perfection of their art form. As I continued to progress through the series I noticed that I began to use black in a number of areas where I could feel the pain of these dancers’ muscles. I could see that they were suffering through their pain to create their Art as I was doing by persisting with the series when all around me were saying “stop”, “you don’t have to finish it”, “everyone will understand if you don’t or can’t finish”. But I understood their drive and dedication as my own. I made it my own. I made it, I finished the series and I am proud that I did…I hope I did these incredibly devoted Artists justice. Dawn V

Project Snowboard got its start when about 20 snowboards were donated to the group.
“Somebody donated a bunch of snowboards, and we didn’t know what to do with them,” said Linda Mills, director of Special Olympics Broward.
Mills said an idea came up to work with the nonprofit Artists with Autism and have the snowboards painted and sold in a fundraising event. Read More
Last week was the opening reception for the new show at Studio 18. Despite the rain it was a wonderful evening.
This exhibition is really exciting because it was a chance for me to experiment with something new. I created an installation of sketches that were executed over the past 30 years. Drawing from my imagination, these doodles give an insight into my life and how I have grown as an artist.
The power to experiment…
There are always valuable lessons to be learned when an artist experiment’s. As artists we are always evolving, taking risks is a vital part of the growing process. In this particular case I decided to not only exhibit my sketches which have never been seen, but also to display them in a unusual manner, hanging from wire with a twist. Is this experiment a success? I guess time will tell.
Thank You to Studio 18 in The Pines and to Robyn Vegas who curated the show!
The exhibition will hang until May 30, a Studio Salon will be held on Friday, May 3, 2013 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. All the artists will have a chance to speak about their works.

An Installation of Drawings by Jacklyn Laflamme
Sketching is a way of life for me, I doodle at every opportunity. Whenever I have an idle moment, there is usually a pencil, pen or marker in hand and without thinking too much I release my imagination to the paper.
This installation is an insight into my imagination thru a series of drawings exhibited with a twist!
