Basel Dazzle: A Fabulous Art Reception will take place at Arts at the Elks, 4949 NW 7 Ave, Miami, a newly renovated shared art space. The cocktail hour begins at 6:00 PM and the showroom opens at 7:30 PM. Along with JCarol and Winsome Bolt, will be Jeff Cash and CJ Latimore. Jeff Cash is a celebrity portrait artist. Raised in New York, he's made a name after releasing portraits of the Harlem Globetrotters and other sports greats such as Sidney Poitier and Muhammad Ali. He presently has been selected as the portrait artist for Bobby Hunter, Globetrotter's book. CJ Latimore, an international celebrity artist, lives between Florida and California and is locally known for his larger than wall sized murals in South Florida. Latimore's art depicts the 'landscape of our lives'. His works line the entrance of Miami Norland High School and the Broward County African American Research Library. His works have displayed internationally and showcases celebrities such as Smokey Robinson, Dave Mason and Oprah Winfrey.
JCarol, social entrepreneur, often has works that portray social injustice issues. As a retired Miami-Dade County Schools administrator, the tragic deaths at Parkland High School led her to release works that proceeds were donated to the school's Go Fund. She has popularized a series called Curvy Winners. Each painting depicts an overweight woman whose name and bio tells the story of a productive woman who is active in her community.
Winsome Bolt stands alone as being the only African American woman to be commissioned to create a sculptured piece on Miami Beach. Ms. Bolt's Peace Pole is located in the Botanical Gardens were students and adults gather each International Peace Day. She is an impressionism artist that teaches and creativity includes interior design at Winsome Designs.
