The purpose of this Cultural Arts Open House program is to introduce Pompano Beach residents to the changes that are taking place within the city regarding the cultural arts. This will be the first of four events throughout the year, to introduce not only the staff and programming, but also to tour all of the cultural arts venues. The first meeting, at the Historic Ali Cultural Arts, will focus on the creation of the new Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department, introduce the staff of the department and present existing and planned future programs.
The Historic Ali Cultural Arts presents Double Exposure, an expression of A. J. Brown’s double life as both a
visual artist and vocalist. The exhibit, free and open to the public, will be on view during regular business hours
from April 25 through June 14, 2019. The opening reception, including a concert and conversation with the
artist, is Thursday, April 25, 6-8pm.
“I paint whatever moves me,” explained Brown. “When I spend time to capture and visually record whatever appeals to my emotional senses at specific moments in my life, the intention is to share that experience with the viewer. My portraits are few and personal, usually of different icons, family members and close friends. Some of my landscapes are, in essence, also portraits, revealing protected treasures, unique geographical locations, or ways of living. My still life pieces typically reflect atmospheric and philosophic statements, and my abstracts reflect my freedom to commit to the journey from a blank canvas to what was created.”
Exploring the exhibition, visitors are taken on a journey through time and space with each painting. The pieces cover a wide range of subject matter and artistic genres, including portrait, still life, landscape and abstract. “We are so gratified to be able to exhibit the very vivid and fresh art works of A.J. Brown,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “His vibrant work offers glimpses into his own passionate nature and brings Pompano Beach a burst of Caribbean energy and flavor. The fact that he’s also a talented vocalist is icing on the cake!”
