It’s hard to believe that the Pérez Art Museum Miami has now been open about three months, but it’s clear it didn’t take the crowds that long to discover it. The gleaming museum-palace on the bay is filled with people on a daily basis, including cloudless, sunny Miami winter Sundays. What a joy to see. Hopefully, […]

It’s really impossible to appreciate the work of London-based Sam Winston by looking at images online; they are too subtle and monochromatic to translate to the screen, and even though they incorporate text, they are hard to describe in print. So it’s important to make the trip to Alejandra von Hartz gallery to physically view […]

The two rooms in the spacious building on North Miami Avenue that houses Edge Zones Projects this month is just right for the large-scale paintings that are hanging there for “Clean Dressed, Dirty Mouth,” featuring seven painters and curated by David Marsh.

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. That industry is something that New York artist Virginia Poundstone has been intrigued by for years. […]

The slightly askew white walls, the unfinished, splotchy concrete floor of Dimensions Variable (a Knight Arts grantee) turns out to be a great backdrop for the five large-scale paintings of Miami-based artist Lynne Golob Gelfman that are currently on display. There is something topographical about the abstract paintings, most of which are recent work, which […]

This Thursday, for instance, one of Miami’s new generation of art pride will have a solo show, Luis Gispert. “Tender Game” at David Castillo Gallery boasts new photographic works from the artist who now […]

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. Fortunately, the first was the case. Offered up on screen was an interesting mix of short films that highlighted just how prolific our arts […]

The movies of the 1930s are particularly evocative. It was an era between two world wars, during the Great Depression, and a time when American culture was truly starting to define itself. 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. The works of Paris-based François Bard are […]
