ArtCenter Presents Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove

ArtCenter Presents Iron Fist in a Velvet GloveSaturday, June 4, 7-10pm – ArtCenter/South Florida, 800, 810 and 924 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

ArtCenter/South Florida is proud to present Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove – organized by resident artist, Natasha Duwin. Many times a gentle demeanor conceals a resolute personality, and a softness in speech and manner betrays a certain severity. This exhibition explores the tensions between these two attitudes, particularly in women.

One of the featured works will be Shedding the Shadows, a dress and tapestry woven out of discarded items of clothing. Seemingly useless objects are repurposed into a series of ropes, with their connotation of strength and usefulness, and they in turn are compiled into a dress that is at once revealing and protective. The evening will also feature our monthly Art Walk, so join us for an art-filled evening of gallery exhibitions and the opportunity to visit the studios of our 36 artists-in-residence, featuring some of South Florida’s most talented artists. Artists will open their doors to share photography, painting, installation, video, and mixed media works.
