Exhibit

The Pride Center at Equality Park in Wilton Manors hosts the opening night reception for local photographer Kaz Takahashi’s exhibition, “Seniors into the Wild,” from 5 – 7 p.m. Takahashi, a sports photographer, took photos of local seniors and then edited their likenesses into photographs taken in the wild.

Exhibit

“Who’s Fooling Who” is a new exhibit on view daily through Feb. 10 at the Studio 18 Gallery, 1101 Poinciana Dr. in Pembroke Pines. The exhibit, called “an exploration of the deceptive,” features artists who either use materials in an unusual way or create works that examine “the unlooked at,” visually provoking the viewer to engage. The show will also highlight the local work of No More Tears, an organization that provides support for immigrant domestic abuse survivors. Free admission.
