“10,000 YEARS OF MIAMI: PAINTINGS BY JOHN WILLIAM BAILLY”
RECEPTION ON FEBRUARY 17, FROM 7 – 9 PM DEERING ESTATE
16701 SW 72ND AVE, MIAMI
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Come see the paintings I’ve made as Artist-in-Residence at the Deering Estate.
The Deering Estate provides the perfect setting to explore the history of Miami. The popular perception of Miami and the authentic reality of Miami are divergent. “10,000 Years of Miami” is my humble effort to remind us of who we are, from a historical and environmental perspective. These paintings depict natural elements as well as transatlantic cultural commonalities. The artistic imagery is based directly on my own field research at archaeological sites, hiking and snorkeling in Biscayne Bay, and traveling to Catalonia to visit Charles Deering’s former villa in Sitges.
