The staff at Magnetic Pompano are devoted to the promotion and success of the visual and performing arts in South Florida. Throughout the month of June Magnetic Pompano welcomes ArtsUnited and its membership as they celebrate the month of Pride with their annual United & Proud Show.

The organization is dedicated to the professional and creative development as well as the empowerment of their artist. This gems of the community has become one of the main and most renowned art organizations in South Florida. We focused on connecting artist with potential buyer and other artists as well as providing a cultural and artistic outlet to our members and supporters. ArtsUnited has become an art-incubator for fledgling LGBT and allied artists, allowing them opportunities to showcase their art, and offering them encouragement and support. The organization also connects them to the larger arts community in South Florida, introducing them to other membership based arts organizations and various private galleries.

Their Mission is to ”Present the Diversity of Artists and Art in South Florida”

Mimi Botscheller, Byron Swart and Magnetic Pompano Gallery are proud to host an extraordinary group of artists forthe Hybrid Strategies 2.0 exhibit.  This remarkable assembly of creative women come to Magnetic with years of experience making art.  They have shown their work locally , regionally, nationally and internationally and have collectively won numerous awards and recognition.  Several members of the group have won the Cultural Consortium Fellowship, and are noted educators.

Ms Botscheller originally conceived of the concept for the Hybrid Strategies theme in 2008 with a show that was widely acclaimed. The selected artists all create artworks that challenge traditional methods of making art and have continued to develop ongoing bodies of work that need to be seen and experienced.   New interesting statements emerge through the use of employing varieties of media and concept.

Hybrid Strategies may be defined as collage art, assemblage art, and sculpture that will open the viewer to the many new intriguing directions that art in the 21st century is exploring.

Please join us for the closing of the show to meet the artists, enjoy good conversation and visual delights, this Saturday, June 3rd 7-9pm.
