The Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show announces its 2016 Miami Art Ambassadors who will showcase their work within eleven curated art exhibit spaces, grouped together to make one large feature area titled, “At Home with Art.” Artists and experts will be present to help Show-goers better understand the process behind creating fine art and provide tips on starting or adding to a collection. The focus of this feature is to demonstrate the high quality and range of choices available in South Florida.
The exhibition will take place from March 18-21, 2016 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Following a “Call to Artists,” submissions were carefully reviewed by Home Shows Management and artists were selected based on a commitment to both their profession and the South Florida artistic community. The 27 artists who were chosen represent emerging, mid-career, and established artists who work in different mediums including: painting, sculpture, ceramics, mixed-media, and photography. Collectively, their work has been exhibited locally and internationally, ranging from local art walks and events to major art fairs including: Art Basel (Miami), Art Miami, and SCOPE Miami Beach. New to this Show are the inclusion of two award-winning filmmakers who will exhibit selections from their fine art photography series: Brian Deutzman is a recipient of a Knight Foundation filmmaking grant and his films have screened at the 2014 Borscht Film Festival and at the 2015 Satellite Art Show (Miami Beach); and Formento + Formento (BJ and Richeille) whose film, “Voyage” was recently selected for the 2016 Cannes Festival Short Film Corner, after receiving accolades at the La Jolla Film Festival 2016 and during Miami Art Week.
As part of the submission, each artist was asked why they should be selected as an ambassador to the South Florida visual arts community. “I have had the privilege of proposing and assisting with The Human Rights/ Human Wrongs campaign and Exhibition in 2012 and offering art therapy to sex trafficking child survivors at Kristi House,” commented Meg Wallace, an artist native to South Florida. “Art can bring hope into hopeless situations as well as instigate conversations amongst people. If I was given the chance to be an ambassador to the South Florida Art Community, I would use this platform to find a way to bring the Art Community together to help positively influence the South Florida Community.”
The 2016 “At Home with Art” artists are: BJ and Richeille Formento (Formento + Formento); Sandra Garcia-Pardo; Daniel Fiorda; Brian Deutzman; Nate Dee; Rebecca Barba; Victor Gomez; Aimee Perez; Ismael Gomez Peralta; Elidea (Elide Arosio); Kris Tamburello; Sacha Suarez; Rosaria Vigorito; Linda Fleischman; Meg Wallace; Griselda Lechini; Alicia Vallejo; Natalya Kochak; Jonathan Brooks; Miguel Rodez; MANO; Franks Christopher; Giselle Fajardo; and Raul Proenza. Christopher, Fajardo and Proenza represent the Little Havana Art District and Viernes Culturales; and Rodez and MANO will collaborate with RUN Art Foundry that will present sculptures by: Jose Bedia, Pedro Pablo Oliva, and Uldis Lopez.
