LnS GALLERY presents
OOLITE and HIGHLIGHTS

OPENING RECEPTION ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, FROM 18:00-21:00
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

MIAMI, FL (December 2017) LnS GALLERY continues its exhibition season with the grand opening of OOLITE, a collective exhibit that includes the work of an eclectic group of 12 artists working in South Florida, upon a foundation of oolite. The show features the work of John William Bailly, Jennifer Basile, Tim Buwalda, Robert DeYoung, Jessie Laino, Gabriela Noelle, William Osorio, Arturo Rodríguez, César Trasobares, Trek6, Tony Vazquez-Figueroa, Sinuhe Vega Negrin, and is accompanied by the LnS Journal with an insightful essay by CAROL DAMIAN, Ph.D.

As Dr. Carol Damian explains, “When presented with the idea of using oolite as the focus of an exhibition, each artist considered the stone from a different perspective related to their own memories and practice and to a new historical and ecological view of their surroundings that they may have taken for granted, but now merit artistic consideration. The shapes of the stones, oval and smooth, are the most basic units to appear in much of the work in the exhibition, especially as they are cemented into our familiar keystone or coral rock.”

“The story of oolite has become an artistic opportunity with results that celebrate the bedrock of Florida and the remarkable diversity of materials, artistic and structural, that have come together over the years. Miami is the epicenter of the most contemporary art scene in the state, and the construction boom that seems to last decades, will always be built upon oolite, beyond the foundations and onto the most recognizable features of buildings old and new,” adds Dr. Damian.

Oölitic limestone, also known as Coral Rock, is one of the most historic building materials native to our area. It has been used since the mid-19th century, in the form of architecture, sculptures and more, inspiring artists, architects and visionaries. Notable designs and structures in “oolite” include Merrick House, the Coconut Grove Women’s Club, Coral Gables City Hall, the Coral Gables Museum, Vizcaya, the Venetian Pool, Coral Castle Museum and Sculpture Garden, and Biscayne Bay Yacht Club to name a few.

“Considered a unique material, it is precisely its distinctive and artistic qualities that sparked our interest in this subject, and further offered inspiration for our artists, who embraced this thematic presentation with incredible passion and gusto,” say Luisa and Sergio. “Please join us as we embark on this encounter and exploration of Oolite.”

“10,000 Years of Miami” at Miami International Airport
By Gendry Sherer, Director & Curator, Airport Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs

John William Bailly is a painter, printmaker and traveler whose work explores issues of origin, history, cultural and geographical identity. Most of the paintings on view here were first exhibited at The Charles Deering Estate where the artist conceived the work through academic and field research as an Artist-in-Residence. Located along the edge of Biscayne Bay in Miami-Dade, the Deering Estate is an environmental, archaeological and historic preserve that broadened the artist’s perception of Miami’s history. His travels and research throughout Europe and specifically at Palau Maricel in Sitges in Catalonia, Spain further led Bailly to examine our transatlantic, cultural and biological relationships between Europe and the Americas.

10,000 Years of Miami is the artist’s reflection on his journey of self-discovery, and his rediscovery of Miami’s rich and diverse history. It is our hope that this exhibition challenges the notion of what the popular perception of Miami is and its reality; that it engages us all in self-reflection and brings awareness of our interconnectedness.
