Now that you can successfully navigate Miami Art Week 2016, we’ve taken the opportunity to compile a short list of superb gallery exhibitions featuring some of the most outstanding representational arts.
Part of the robust draw to Miami Art Week is the event’s magnitude, offering the widest variety of art techniques, styles, and so much more. With our readers in mind, we’ve decided to compile a short list of representational exhibitions that have earned a can’t-miss stamp from Fine Art Today. During the fair’s first day, Fine Art Connoisseur regional sales manager Violeta de la Serna, a Miami native and herself an art and design collector, walked the entirety of Art Miami and CONTEXT in just over 4 hours! We’re lucky to have her!
Within Art Miami, noteworthy were Gallery Andreas Binder and Marina Gisich Gallery. Gallery Andreas Binder is showing the amazing works by Yigel Ozeri, who creates breathtaking figurative works in oil. Several of his works are executed in monochrome, enhancing both the sculptural quality of his figures and photographic impressions.
Marina Gisich Gallery, hailing from St. Petersburg, Russia, is featuring the works of Kerim Ragimov, an accomplished portraitist. De la Serna also reports Art Miami visitors should stop at Gallery Henoch, where the works of Robert Jackson and Sally Fame Cochrane are sure to delight.
For lovers of exquisite still life, Jorge M. Sori Fine Art will be a hot destination for you. Featuring the works of Latin American masters, the esteemed gallery will host a joint exhibition of Tomás Sànchez and Renato Meziat. In addition, the gallery is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
If you have an eye for tightly rendered realism, stop over at booth D403, where New York’s Bernarducci Meisel Gallery will be showcasing the works of supremely talented cityscape painters Richard Estes, Raphaella Spence, and many others. Lyons Wier Gallery of New York will also be presenting works by artists Cayce Zavaglia and James Rieck. Zavaglia’s work will contrast sharply from those at Bernarducci Meisel: large figurative acrylics that include highly abstract and expressive lines that activate the surface. Also in contrast are the works of James Rieck, whose works present a more illustrative style.
Miami-based gallery Waltman Ortega Fine Art will also host a tantalizing show in booth A115. Among the artists included in its stable this year are François Bard and Cesar Santos.
CONTEXT also produced a wealth of outstanding exhibitions. Number 1 on your list should be booths 123 and 314, where Elisa Anfuso with Liquid Art System out of Positano, Italy, has a fantastic program on view. Among the notable highlights are works by renowned artist Matteo Pugliese along with Umberto Ciceri, Peter Demetz, Riccardo Evangelisti, Marco Grassi, Kim In Tae, Livia Marin, Andrea Pakanowski, Antonio Sannino, Matthias Verginer, Willy Verginer, and Seo Young Deok.
If you’re heading over to Art Basel Miami Beach, we recommend checking out Sayer Gomez’s “The Painting Thief in Ultramarine”, which is on view at Rodolf Janssen.
