In the very back of the ground floor of the Boca Museum of Art is a simple, beautiful exhibit from Elaine Reichek – it could be easy to miss, and you really shouldn’t.

Goran Tomcic marks his return to Miami with an installation at Dimensions Variable (a Knight Arts grantee) that shouts out intensity of process and attention to detail that results in a spectacular display. Tomcic has fastidiously cut out little golden-colored hearts, leaves, flowers, shells from Mylar and attached them to thousands of strings of fishing […]

The imagery of Leonel Matheu is intentionally child-like in its figurative depictions, colorful, with cartoonish characters and scenery that could have popped out from a children’s book. But not quite. Those domed bald heads and teddy bear people, the flying saucers, the simple stars and moons are reflecting not a fairy-tale world, but a darker […]

Maybe the first thing to jump out at you when taking in the Michael Jones McKean solo show, “we float above to spit and sing” at the Emerson Dorsch Gallery, is the lighting.

Today, Miami has numerous possibilities for both local and national artists to spend some quality time delving into their craft. To name just a few: Cannonball; The Fountainhead; ArtCenter; the Deering Estate; the Everglades AIRE; and the latest […]

Arturo Rodriguez has sometimes fallen under the radar here in Miami, although he has been exhibited worldwide for many decades. But maybe that’s not a surprise: Miami is a brash city that likes flashy statements, and has an obsession with youth and its aesthetic. The paintings and drawings of Rodriguez go against this grain; they […]

The June 14th Second Saturdays art night in Wynwood and the Design District tomorrow is a good way to gauge just how much our indigenous art scene has transformed. First off, it’s hot summer, yet the season has hardly come to a close. There will be numerous quality shows out there to see. However, as […]

The artist-run space Guccivuitton has had some fine shows since it opened up a couple years back. But “The Look” fits it like a glove. That’s because the exhibit in a storefront in Little Haiti is filled with works of Haitian-born artists (well, there is one exception), works that span from the 1950s until today, […]
