Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. And this particularly commercialized holiday is intricately associated with flowers. Every ad tells you to buy the blooms for someone, anyone, to prove your love — it’s a great gig for the flower industry.

Last week Tigertail Productions inaugurated a film festival, ScreenDance Miami, a four-day event. First time attempts like these can be filled with new energy — or not quite ready for prime time.

There were strong women on screen, gangsters, and a 1920s F. Scott Fitzgerald glamour that most Americans were likely not experiencing. The movies […]

There’s still time before the end of the month to catch the portraits from two French-born painters at Waltman Ortega. Figurative is really too simple a term to label these large-scale canvases — representational, yes, but with obvious, beautiful strokes from the brush as essential elements to the creations.

It is frankly impossible to describe what you will see when looking at the artworks of Michel Paysant at the Lelia Mordoch gallery in Wynwood. It is at once so esoteric and also historically universal that the right words don’t really exist. But here’s an attempt. After the main screen computer is turned on and […]

You can meet the artist Carola Bravo when you walk into the ground-floor room set aside for her videos at the Zadok Gallery, anytime of day. At least one version of her, as she covers a white room with irregular black lines in a wall-length video. “Legal Graffiti” is an immersive video, making the viewer […]

Two interesting exhibits at two alternative galleries are opening up to kick off the 2014 season, each one in its own way dealing and working with patterning, textures and a visual outcome that can become beautifully illusionary. At the downtown space of Dimensions Variable (a Knight Arts grantee), the accomplished artist Lynne Golob Gelfman will […]
