Robert Zuckerman, Bianca Magic Shower, photograph, 1985
Until August 1stRobert Zuckerman. Time Machine. Photography
Robert Zuckerman, acclaimed photographer known for creating advertising and/or publicity images for such films as The Crow, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Any Given Sunday, Training Day, Bad Boys 2, National Treasure, Transformers, Pursuit of Happiness and many more, will be exhibiting his vintage fine art imagery originally from the mid '70s to the early '90s.

Says Zuckerman: “The work represented in TIME MACHINE is my version of being a ‘kid in a candy store,’ such was the experience of discovery, magic and promise. As a young, shy, inhibited boy, the camera early on held great appeal to me. It was a magic box with the power to create images, and it had the power, for me, to access and connect the inner and the outer worlds. Most of these images have been filed away for decades, and now, as I reconnect with them, I find that they have taken on an added dimension of power and meaning.”

Michael Loveland, Fork in the Road, 2009, glass, metal, concrete, 101 x 24 x 40 in
From June 14 Felice Grodin. Lost Horizon
“We are living in a time when fixed notions have been lost and new possibilities are on the horizon. My work attempts to trap the mutable state of things where paradigms shift, boundaries erode and particles collide. I investigate the architecture of chance, the stretching of the 'truth' and the delaying of the inevitable.”
Exploring drawing, collage and sculpture, Felice Grodin maps out cartographies of tension and compression that remain spatially ambiguous. They represent moments of transformation, movement and entropy. Felice Grodin was born in Bologna, Italy. She curated her first show at Locust Projects in Miami called “Synesthetics” which explored the creative interface between art, design and technology. Felice lives and works in Miami Beach.

Jacqueline, Color Bars Triptych, Encaustic work on canvas, 46 x 48 in
Jacqueline. Encaustic Series
Jacqueline's complex layers of pigment suspended in time engage the viewer’s entire body and transport the mind to a deeper, ethereal place of wholeness and light.
Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface — usually prepared wood, however, Jacqueline's newest series of works are translated on canvas and have a deep richness afforded only to work that has been painstakingly created by a master artist and craftswoman.

For the exhibition Luna Park, Alejandra von Hartz Gallery has invited six Miami artists to produce functional lighting objects and/or realistic schemes for ambient illumination. In other words, they have been invited not so much to produce artsy, one-of-a-kind lamps as to develop well-thought prototypes that can be mass-produce and exist in the world much like any other designed object must. The artists have been invited to consider all the possibilities that are opened by any number of vibrant spaces--from the family room to the corporate lobby, from the themed club or restaurant to the university dorm, from the corner cafeteria to the outdoor promenade--that exist beyond the safe-zones through which art objects usually circulate.
Along with producing prototypes, the artists have been invited to consider the way in which their works will be presented. Display itself is being considered here as an active element in the way that objects go out into the world, in the way that an initial context determines the many other contexts that they may potentially exist in.

Lucía Madriz, Money Talks, Rice and beans, 2003, 188 x 188 in
Donna Conlon & Lucía Madriz“My work is a socio-archaeological inquiry into my immediate surroundings. I collect and accumulate ordinary objects, images, and repeated actions from my daily life and local environment, and then use them to reveal the idiosyncrasies of human nature and the contradictions inherent to our contemporary lifestyle. The development of my projects often begins with simply noticing an out-of-context object or an illogical occurrence. I have used damaged trees and plants that I have found in the woods, insects that have flown into my studio, lost shoes, and garbage from the streets and sidewalks to describe and question human behavior, especially the conflicts I observe in our urban, natural, and social environments.” Donna Conlon

Copeland, Moon Dust III,6ft – 8ft, Mixed Media
Linda CopelandArtist in ResidenceCopeland’s art is all about expressing energy. Her paintings lack familiar objects and as a result she invites the viewer to feel the painting emotionally. Rather than trying to interpret the painting, she would like you to simply enjoy the experience, feel the energy and see the beauty. Her process is very physical and it is this form of both bodily and emotional intensity that inspires her. She believes that in our daily life we personally interpret what we see to define the experience we have. Each of us can look at the same object and see something different based on our level of consciousness.
All the art you will view in her gallery studio has the impression of spontaneity. In the first room, you’ll find paintings that use an “all over” technique – there is no definable composition. In the other room is a brand new series called Moondust.

Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

The 1966 hit song from the group Lovin Spoonful succinctly describes our streets of the Wynwood Arts District:“Hot town, summer in the city - Back of my neck getting dirt and gritty Been down, isn’t it a pity - Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city All around, people looking half dead - Walking on the sidewalk, Hotter than a match head….”
Yet, walk in to Artformz Alternative this hot Miami summer and you’ll find a cool oasis (air-conditioned space/thirst quenching art) in the heart of Miami’s still gritty (thank you) art gallery district.

Until June 28Kate Gilmore. By Any Means
By Any Means is a performance-based video and a site-specific sculpture in which the physicality of architecture and sculpture is pitted against the female body and will. It is the first exhibition at Locust Projects' new location in Miami's Design District.
Gilmore is the sole protagonist in her single-channel videos, where she sets up a difficult physical task to overcome. The videos, always filmed in private, are destructive, comedic and only attempted once. For By Any Means, 2009, Gilmore, donned in feminine dress and heels, will dig, build and climb her way out of a dirt-filled wooden sculpture. The large-scale sculpture will be installed in Locust Projects’ adjacent courtyard and will remain on view for the duration of the exhibition.
The artist will also present three recent video-based works in this exhibition.
Summer: TMSister in situMiami-based collaborative TM Sisters are the winners of the second Hilger Artist Project Award. In July, the artists begin their two-month transformation of Locust Projects’ space for a site-specific installation and performance opening in the fall. Visitors are welcome to observe the progress of the exhibition over the summer. For further information please contact locustprojects@yahoo.com

Jamali, Orianna, 2005, Pigmentation on Cork, 57 x 39 in
Jamali. Shie Moreno. Andrew MuggletonLawrence Savage Galleries welcomes the internationally renowned artist Jamali who has long attracted a select and international circle of collectors, drawn by his mystical style and charismatic persona.
Jamali's method of painting is its own unique chapter in the history of contemporary art. He paints out of doors, applying paint in a meditative dance, like the Sufi mystic's swirling prayer to God. He builds up his intense and complex surfaces over time, allowing the natural elements to interact with the paint and canvas. It often feels as if time and nature, not the artist, had created these deeply etched and layered surfaces. Jamali's method brings to new fruition what Donald Kuspit calls "the unconscious mystical meaning of modernist surface."
The Galleries continue to present Shie Moreno’s artwork of individual expression and the display of noted designer Andrew Muggleton’s 2009 furniture collection.

Jim Pollock
Until June 20Curtis Lafollette Metal shows mastery of material. It is very much about extraordinary interpretation of ordinary, normally mundane items and is indicative of his work with other such objects such as bud vases, hollowware, and flatware. Though clearly an amazing metal-smith and master of his craft, Curtis is perhaps better described as a sculptor first and foremost.
His work turns on its head the very question of form vs function and shatters the boundaries between what were seemingly disparate ideals. It's not easy to reinvent the tea-pot but Curtis has.
