January 11 - February 16
The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is delighted to announce their newest exhibition, “Engraved”. This collaboration with The Buenos Aires Editing Center in Argentina and the Latin American Art Pavilion Project (LAAP) celebrates the work and artistic development of women in the visual arts field. Forty European and Latin American female artists from Argentina, Austria, Ecuador and Venezuela will present some of their most representative pieces. The exhibition runs January 11-April 5, 2019 and is free and open to the public.
“We kick-off our celebration of International Women’s Month a little early in order to provide ample time to showcase this important exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Director of the Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department. “We are honored to once again be partnering with Maria Napoles of the Latin American Art Pavilion (LAAP) on another outstanding project, and we are delighted that Maria has introduced us to Professor Natalia Giacchetta and the impressive works of these talented female artists.”
“Engraved” features artists from different regions of the world who develop their artistic work through techniques such as lithography (printing or calcareous stone), printmaking (engraving in metal or wood), digital drawing and graphics, using mostly paper as a noble support of the representative depth of the images. The artworks will be exhibited following diverse techniques that highlight their individuality: with frames, without frames, as installations, and within showcases generating a climate of strength and subtleties. This demonstrates the virtues and characteristics of each individual work but, as a whole provides the viewer with an intense and harmonious journey into the world of each of these artists.
The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is located at 50 West Atlantic Blvd, Pompano Beach, FL 33060

About The Buenos Aires Editing Center:
The Buenos Aires Editing Center was founded in 1997. At that time, in Argentina, there were no Publishing Centers where the artist could have his own space, where various professionals could take care of the technical part in the creative process of lithography and engraving. Since then, the Center has had the honor of receiving more than 500 artists including Leon Ferrari, Eduardo Stupia, Horacio Zabala, Luis Felipe Noe, Liliana Porter, Adrian Villar Rojas among many others. The Center has also held more than 100 exhibitions, 40 art fairs and many events around the world.
