Seminole Theatre
18 North Krome Avenue, Homestead, FL, US

The Historic Seminole Theatre provides a hub for all the arts, not just the performing arts. The new gallery space in the Seminole Theatre lobby celebrates fine and visual arts and promotes local artists.

The Artist in the Spotlight program (formerly known as “Art in the Chambers”) was created in 2010 by Councilman Shelley to highlight the talents of local artists and allow them to showcase their artwork to the local community. Councilman Shelley is an avid photographer himself and has a passion for the arts. “I know how hard it can be to promote and market your work as an artist, and I wanted to create a program that would help our local artist publicize their work and advance their careers. I also wanted to help promote art in general and art education within our Homestead community” said Councilman Shelley.

On Monday, August 29, the Seminole Theatre will open its doors to the public for a Gallery Night at the Seminole. From 6:30-8:30 pm, guests are welcome to browse the artwork on display, meet the featured artist, and enjoy wine and cheese.

The featured artist for August – September 2017 is artist Carlos Franco. His series of paintings are all oils on canvas, He profoundly enjoys the challenge of recreating a person's essence, while leaving the audience the desire to decipher the mysteries of the life of another human being, who could actually be a real person very much alive, or just somebody that is a fruit of his imagination. 

Carlos Franco invites viewers to speculate based on their own concepts of beauty, poetry and even seduction. Carlos Franco says "This project has always been grounded in pleasure and aesthetics".

As a special treat, you will also be able to see the art made by the Children's Art Gallery artists.

Former participants of the program found the exposure to be invaluable. South Florida National Parks Camera Club, featured artists of July-August 2015, President Jason Eldridge says, “There are few venues available for clubs to show the work of members; we are grateful for this opportunity to allow our photographers to share their art with the community.” Past participants include: Robert L. Chaplin, Paul Marcellini, Luis Núñez, Brian Trainor, Jessica M. Ujaque, Angeline Marie Martinez, The Children’s Gallery and Arts Center, ArtSouth, Caryl Alarcón, Jesus Marquez, Teresa Slomko, Artist-in-Residence-in-Everglades (AIRIE), Suzanne Moe, Marcela Noriega, Marcia Maynard, Lillian Marlatt, Mimi Dickson, Mary Dee Burkhart, Ruth Campbell, Carol McGunagle, and South Florida National Parks Camera Club.

The installation at the Seminole Theatre was made possible in large part due to a donation from the Friends of the Historic Seminole Theatre. A non-profit founded in 1997 with the goal of restoring the then vacant and dilapidated Seminole Theatre, the “Friends” now work diligently to maintain the Theatre's architectural history and community contribution.
