~ Thursday, September 21, 2006 ~

The Reader’s Club, a successful initiative by The Florida Center of the Literary
Arts at Miami Dade College, in cooperation with Channel 23 and Univision radio
stations continue to promote reading and new books in the community by inviting
renown authors to the club. This time, Antonio Orlando Rodriguez will read from
his novel “Aprendices de brujo”, Thursday September 21, 7:30 p.m. at Books and
Books, 265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, FL.

In his fascinating novel, this Cuban narrator introduces two young men from Bogota
who decide to embark on a journey to Havana hoping to meet a legendary Italian
actor who has returned to the stage.

Readers are taken back in time to the wild 20s, when anything was bound to happen.
The main characters of “Amor de brujo” jump from the murky offices of the secret
police to a dance scene from One Thousand and One Nights, from an agitated tribute
to Lenin to a ritual where followers play the drums for Babalú Ayé, from the scene
of a brutal crime in a Chinese town to interracial orgies and boisterous brothels,
while they do the impossible get an interview with the famous Eleanora Duse.

Medicine men that make possible the transmigration of souls, hermaphrodite nuns,
communist male beauties, and messengers from the astral world that try to change
the terrible destiny of an island are some of the ingredients that season this
intrepid farce of tragic background where the supernatural, the erotic, the poetic
and politics intertwined.

Double narratives –a pimp that lives with his lover the most outlandish adventures
and a Diva that, tired of everything, goes over her life with drama and irony—
unravel, in a peculiar style, residuals of a period exposed in an intense novel
beautifully written where two cities emerge as central characters: the grayish and
conventional Bogota and the daring and cosmopolitan Havana.

Antonio Orlando Rodriguez was born in Cuba and graduated with a degree in
Journalism from Universidad de La Habana. He has lived in Costa Rica and Colombia
and has resided in the United States since 1999. In Havana, he published
Striptease and Querido Dracula, and in Bogota he worked on the play El leon y la

Benefiting Broward Firefighters

Howard Finkelstein, the Chief Public Defender for Broward County, and South
Florida’s legal advisor on Channel 7’s weekly news segment Help Me Howard, will
participate in Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival’s event commemorating
the Fifth Anniversary of 9-11. The tribute, which takes place at Cinema
Paradiso on September 11 at 6:30pm, begins with a color guard presentation by
local firefighters, and an opening meditation by Rick Hunter, lead pastor at the
City Church. The event, which benefits Broward County Firefighters, will be an
evening of history, healing, and hope.

Howard Finkelstein who is responsible for creating and establishing the nation's
first Mental Health Court, dedicates time to advocating for the poor,
developmentally disabled and the mentally ill. Throughout his career, he has been
recognized for his outstanding work in not only the legal field but, for his
humanitarian efforts and contributions to the community.

Howard, a man committed to help in healing the world, will moderate an open
discussion after a special screening of THE GUYS, a powerfully moving film about a
New York City journalist (Sigourney Weaver) who is called upon to help a fire
captain (Anthony LaPaglia) write a series of eulogies for the men he lost at the
World Trade Center and in turn helps him work through his grief.

This broad panel discussion will include: Fort Lauderdale City Manager George
Grestas who was in New York at the time the airplanes hit the Twin Towers, Dr.
Larry Thompson of First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale, and Tommy Melanges, a
Junior at St. Thomas Acquinas High School in Broward County who was 11 years old
at the time of 9/11/2001, plus representatives of the Broward County Schools and
the Muslim Community.

After the panel discussion, a complimentary sneak preview of the documentary "The
Saint of 9/11" will be presented. The film, which celebrates the life of FDNY

exploring the experiences of belief in Western Contemporary Culture,” says Amanda

me and my life with the language of the mind (writings) and with the language of
the soul (Symbolic Drawings)."

Dot Fiftyone Gallery announces the premier of "Super Morphine", inaugurating
Miami's HIGH ART SEASON 2006/2007.

Exhibition Opening Reception: Saturday September 9th - 8 PM - 11 PM
(Wynwood Art & Design District Second Saturday's Gallery Walk)

Dot Fiftyone Art Gallery inaugurates Miami's high art season 2006/2007 with "Super
Morphine", first US solo exhibition of the Mexican Artist, Carlos Jorge Macari.
The exhibition will feature the artist recent paintings, drawings and
three-dimensional artworks.

Carol Damian, Professor, Art and Art History Department, Florida International
University, Miami wrote about the upcoming exhibition and the artist's characters:

The characters have names like Morphine and Vitamin. They are whimsical fantasies
described in drawings, paintings and sculpture, like cartoons yearning to break free
of the confines of their master's bizarre sense of visual reality. Carlos Jorge
Macari has created their world and each personality takes on a life of its own. They
are the promptings of a vivid imagination that may have been encouraged by the very
rich heritage of the artist's homeland in Yucatán, México, with its endless
mythologies and profound sense of symbolic narrative. The Mayans of the region
invented a hieroglyphic script to recount their history and preserve the past for
the present. Their remarkable epic of the Popol Vuh stands as a universal model for
the "word made visible" and writing as visible speech was captured in its glyphs,
counts and symbols. It was a non-alphabetic writing system consisting of ideographs
- signs conveying metaphysical ideas but not their sounds - that told stories. Mayan
stories came alive with a cast of characters performing a complex of roles. The
stories of Morphine are no less imaginative, and certainly reminiscent of this
ability to capture the narrative through the simplicity of a ideographic

Morphine and his fantastic friends are the protagonists of the artist's story. He
says they were conceived during the times of the Mayan civilization in a story of
prohibited love between a simple lobster of the Yucatan coasts called Lupita, and
Triton, the King and God of the Seas. Triton was forced to leave his love or the
seas would fall into chaos. Morphine was their child and, brought up by his mother
alone, all the creatures of the sea were his guardians. He had the power to change
colors and to bring joy at times of depression and anxiety.

Morphine and his friends held the mysteries of earth and sea and had the ability to
conquer evil and save the planet from destruction.In the work of Carlos Macari,
these characters are distilled to a schematic essence, consisting of strong contours
and colorful shapes. Arranged in rhythmic patterns based on repetition and an
exuberant sense of decorative artifice that is a comment on today's mass-culture
idiom, they emerge from their storied past into the present - like beacons of hope
and much-needed elements of humor. Of course, their association with the glyphic
characters of the Mayan language supersedes any contemporary references, despite
their post-modern contextualizing regarding the artistic nature of media-driven
commercialism and their association with the playful, video creatures with which so
much of the art world (especially the young) is enamored. Emerging out of the
graffiti celebration years of the 1980s, the art world's fascination with cartoons,
fiction, new media, and art as entertainment has encouraged an entire generation of
artists to express themselves within that construct. Sometimes referred to as
"Neo-Pop" imagery, the work uses intense color, block-like patterns and intricate
compositions of repetitive units. What is different about Carlos Macari is that his
sources of references expand beyond the immediacy and instant gratification of the
tube into the realm of myth with original recreations based on the rich lore of the

"Super Morphine," will be on through October 9 in DOT Fiftyone Gallery, 51 N.W. 36th
Street, in the Wynwood Art and Miami Design District. Following the September 9th
opening reception, gallery hours will be Monday-Friday, 12 P.M. to 7 P.M., Saturday
and private viewing available by appointment.

11. Water Ballet & Water Music at the Biltmore Hotel
Posted by: "William" timoria63
Date: Tue Sep 5, 2006 2:34 pm (PDT)

Water Ballet Makes a Splash at Historic Biltmore Hotel Pool

Momentum Dance Company makes a splash at the historic Biltmore Hotel
pool with a performance of two water ballet works on Sunday, September
17 at 6PM. The performance at the Biltmore, 1200 Anastasia Avenue in
Coral Gables, features the aquatic version of the 1928 classic Water
Study, as well as Plunge, a contemporary dance work created to be
performed in the water, and a live performance of Handel's celebrated
Water Music by the Center for Emerging Art String Quartet. Tickets are
$15 in advance (available only at and
$20 at the door.
In Water Study the dancers create the illusion of waves, splashes, and
other characteristics of water while using only their breathing as
accompaniment. Plunge, by Artistic Director Delma Iles, fuses elements
of modern dance, synchronized swimming and contact improvisation in an
innovative dance set to new age music. "I am working towards
developing a new form of dance," says Iles. Her childhood training in
water ballet and professional experience in modern dance and contact
improvisation lead to the creation of Plunge.
The CEA String Quartet performs Handel's celebrated Water Music played
for England's King George I who liked to journey up the Thames on the
royal barge. On one occasion the King held a party on the river and
many musicians followed in another barge, playing Handel's music. It
is said that the King had the music played three times in all, during
the outward and return trips.
This program is one of the first in Momentum Dance Company's
innovative lineup for its Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Season. Momentum
will also present concerts December 1 & 2 at the Colony Theater
showcasing favorite works from the past plus two world premieres and a
company premiere of Jose Limon's 1950 classic The Exiles. In addition,
Momentum will perform four children's dance programs in Coral Gables
in spring 2007, a children's series in Hialeah, a program of new works
by the dancers, and the third annual Miami Beach Dance Festival.
The Center for Emerging Art provides quality arts programs in the
community, and use the Arts as a way to build bridges of understanding
between cultures.
Seating for this performance is limited. For information and ticketing
call 305-858-7002.

Lyle O.Reitzel Gallery Miami presents: "Inside Miami Garden".

Contemporary art gallery Lyle O. Reitzel, who has operated for more
than a decade from Santo Domingo, and opened its new venue's doors
as Lyle O. Reitzel gallery in Miami, in 2006, located in the Wynwood
Art District scenario, features an important group show during next
Saturday's September 9th 'Gallery Walk', with the suggestive
title "Inside Miami Garden". Different expressions of the
contemporary art creation converge in the exhibition including
paintings, photographs, installations and art-objects, represented
by the label of innovative artists with very particular aesthetic
languages, in many cases bizarre and in others, situated within the
borders of minimalism. They integrate reflexive visual concepts and
discourses that embark upon inquiries dealing with the human
condition, its temporary passage, with existence in a convulsive,
accelerated and violent world.

Artists participating in the show are: Raquel Paiewonsky, Gerard
Ellis, Emilia Cunliffe, Jose Garcia Cordero, Jose Morales, Eleomar
Puente and Carlos Quintana.

"Inside Miami Garden" will be open to the public through October
30th, 2006.

~ Four Women "BEYOND COLOR" Art Exhibit at LuzMa Gallery; Friday, September 8, 2006,
6 p.m. ~

Artist Luz Marina Ramirez, known as LuzMa, invites everyone to the opening reception
of her new LuzMa Gallery and breathtaking four-artist exhibition "Beyond Color,"
taking place Friday, September 8, 2006, 6 p.m. at 2855 SW Coral Way, Miami FL.

The exhibit will comprise of four professional ladies whose passion for art go
indeed beyond color. They are Gigi Antunez de Mayolo and Tere Laso from Peru, Nahila
Sarzalejo from Venezuela and gallery owner LuzMa from Colombia.

LuzMa Gallery had to close last year after constructors requested demolition of the
building where she had her studio for over three years. But rather than stopping her
desire to expand her artistic inclinations, this experience prompted LuzMa to take a
sabbatical year and move to Marbella, Spain.

"When I found out I had to close the gallery that I opened with so much love and
excitement due to construction of new buildings in the area, I picked up my
paintings, rented my apartment in Miami and left to Spain with my family to explore
other horizons," said LuzMa who is also a lawyer. "I've always taught my children
that everything happens for a reason and this time wasn't going to be any

In fact, LuzMa began exploring a new form to express her art and extensive research
took her back to the pre-historic period and the most rustic forms of artistic
expression. She visited caves that still had embedded in their walls petroglyph
images incised by the very first men to live on this planet, pre-historic and
Neolithic peoples. She went back to her studio in Marbella, and learned to put such
concepts into her canvas; hence, resulting in a unique kind of art that left her
with the sweet tastes of having found eternity through painting.

LuzMa arrived in Miami nearly 25 years ago leaving a career in the legal arena and
hoping to find a better life in the United States. She got married to her husband, a
computer engineer and had two children, Carolina and Alvaro, Jr., now 19 and 16

"I realized that I loved it [art] so much that it was something I wanted to do for
myself," said LuzMa. ""I believe in the present and in the present we should all
live because happiness comes accepting every moment in life that brings you a new

WHAT: Re-opening of LuzMa Gallery once closed down due to city's new constructions

WHEN: September 8, 2006; 6 PM

WHERE: LuzMa Gallery, 2855 SW Coral Way, Miami, FL

WHY: The artist dreamed of returning to Miami, FL, where she began her artistic
career and where she wanted to re-open her once lost studio/gallery.
