Saturday, September 12
7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
The Miami Poetry Collective was founded by Campbell McGrath at a plastic table in front of Zeke’s Roadhouse Bar in November 2008. The group’s members range from national prize winners to emerging writers who have never been published to visual artists with a passion for language. The goal of the collective is to grow the practice of literature in Miami.

The Poem Depot is a pop-up store that sells poems. For small, suggested donations, members of the MPC write original poems on manual typewriters based on topics suggested by the public. The store challenges the notion that poetry has no connection to everyday life, as well as demystifying the writing process by de-privatizing the author-at-work. Poem Depot has appeared at the Miami Art Museum, Miami-Dade Public Library, Hollywood Library, Books & Books, and was recently featured on WLRN’s radio program, “Under the Sun.”

The Poem Depot will be at
191 NE 40th Street
Miami Design District

His aspirations as a painter are as ambitious as those as
Tico the musician. His growing body of work continues to receive notice of collectors and the art press. Whether sketching while on tour with his band, Bon Jovi, or painting in his New Jersey studio or home in Florida, Tico's inspiration comes from life experiences.

Alejandra von Hartz
Ameztoy, The Sources of the Nile 1, 2009.Acrylic on mylar,
49 x 51 1/4 x 8 in

Manuel Ameztoy.
The Sources of the Nile
Ameztoy displays a wide range of pieces that fully represents his diverse work and its most recent evolution: paper cutouts in Plexiglas boxes, paintings, textile cutouts, and photographs of land-art interventions.
Ameztoy’s most recognizable work are the handmade-cutouts contained in Plexiglas boxes, and have been previously shown in the United States on various occasions. The pieces for the current exhibition make up a series of highly elaborate pieces of painted cutout curtains of mirrored mylar, reminiscent of the handcraft techniques of Mexican “papel picado” and Japanese “kirigami”. As in a fantastical scene, the vegetable pattern cutouts of acetate mirror unveil the depths of a pristine forest where Hokusai’s explorers share a vision of The Sources of the Nile.
These same intricate cutouts are multiplied and serve as stencyls that give birth to a series of paintings. On the canvas, the image works as a motif, a cliché that modifies itself thanks to repetition. Ameztoy appeals to our imagination. As stated in a recent interview, “I create the paintings and the boxes overlapping many layers of images. I intend to produce visual instability; pieces that show an image partly-produced and partly-invented by the imagination of the observer, the “beholder”... I like it when the memory of what was seen remains unstable, like in dreams.”

Pablo Cabada, Dos mundos, 2008, Archival pigmented print, edition 5, 44 x 55 in

Pablo Cabado. Recent Work
Pablo Cabado, Guggenheim Fellowship recipient in 2002, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, studied photography in Mexico City and since then has been exhibiting his photographs in the U.S., France, Italy, The Netherlands, Cuba, Mexico and Argentina.
The photographs in this exhibition are a selection from two separate recent series, one in color and the other in black and white. The color project, 37°57'35 S 57°34'49 W documents a mysterious and abandoned amusement park, inhabited by ruined rides and the echoes of the culture that once was. His black and white photographs also explore buildings and dark landscapes where life once thrived. All of Cabado's images are created with a keen eye for texture and a sensibility for tonal gradations that are a feast for the viewers' eyes.
Among his many grants and awards,
Cabado was given the Young Photographer of the Year in the ICP of New York (New York 1989), the Mother Jones grant (San Francisco 1990) and the Gran Premio de Honor del Salon de Artes Visuales (Argentina 2000). His work is included in museums and private collections in Latin America, the U.S. and Europe.
Cabado currently lives and works in Buenos Aires. He photographs with a large format camera (8x10" and 4x5") and travels in his 1971 Ford Falcon.

Gustavo Acosta, The Glass Shield, 2009, Acrylic on canvas, 96 x 64 in

Gustavo Acosta & Carlos Gonzalez
Flying was a dream and an obsession for centuries until the airplane was invented. Although now we are able to fly assisted by mechanical devices, we still look at birds in a mix of wonder and envy. As a result wings are seen as the means of transforming, and flying as the ultimate metaphor of freedom, the image of total liberation.
Here we have two contemporary Cuban artists whose works are connected to this idea: Gustavo is using it as a resource for his paintings and Carlos is more interested in the actual possibility of flying, translating this interest to his sculptures.

SammerRoberto Noboa, El tennis me sirve de pretexto para pintar, Acrylic canvas, 2009, 70.9 x 47.2 in

Roberto Noboa Vallarino
El Tennis me sirve de Pretexto para Pintar
El tenis me sirve de pretexto para pintar, se trata de pintar antes que nada. Desde comprar tubos de pintura, y ponerla sobre la tela, el papel o lo que sea, es lo mejor. Pinto para crear mundos en base a recuerdos y cosas que vivo y veo. Las canchas son espacios abiertos que contienen formas geométricas, a veces, se mezclan con otra fascinación que siempre he tenido que es pintar animales. Ahora trato de mezclar estas cosas y también aparece un tenista, o un encordador de raquetas que por alguna razón me hace pensar en Vermeer. Ahora me ha dado por poner alfombras en las canchas, definitivamente me gusta el efecto, sobre ellas, mesas de ping-pong. En el cuadro “Era Diciembre y hacia frío, escapó tan rápido como pudo”, se ven sillas elegantes a un lado de la cancha, estas sillas pertenecen a un grupo distinguido de jueces, la persona que vivía en este espacio y protagonista de la obra no aguanto más y a pesar del frío, escapó. La cancha de tenis al igual que la vida esta llena de jueces. Todo lo pinto más o menos rápido, tengo cuadros de grandes formatos que tienen una sola fecha y tengo unos pequeñitos que comencé hace 3 o 4 años que todavía no termino”.

SammerCedric Couturier

Aurore Valade. Cedric Couturier.
Clement Collet –Billon

Aurore Valade asks people to play their own role in their own interior. The scene is long worked: settlement of figures, installation of the game and the comedy played by extras, study the placement of the objective according to available spaces to create a composition balanced. The result is a theatricality of the image that everything is a sham from a reality yet very close. We discern no longer the boundary between fiction and reality, only the mystery fleet in these scenes whose aim is to make us appreciate this everyday banality that eye never take care to observe.

The reflection of
Cedric Couturier is based on observation of body and its reactions in the everyday situations: he distinguishes opportunities driving the body according to the various tensions created by outsider body; he observes how the body floats in space, occupies a volume and can go beyond its limits in morphological in emitting sounds. The installation of the artist’s work, with simple material becomes a genuine scientific approach, which is to produce experiences, whose the artist does not know the outcome.

The material used for
Collet-Billon to image the impalpable, whether specifically body heat or by domestic violence that may arouse in us all the excitement of a licentious desire, are used to establish a sort of mental connection between the viewer and the canvas. And it is also in this report that the artist creates a meeting between the subject and the work, which shows images that makes our subconscious to aim at physical satisfaction.

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999

Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. 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.

Blake Fisher. Patricia Schnall Gutierrez.
ruce McQuiston

Blake Fisher.


Fisher was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He started as a commercial photographer yet maintained a love of fine art photography, principally nudes. His work is printed on silver gelatin paper and in limited editions, focusing on the female form as one of the most timeless subjects in photography.

Patricia Schnall Gutierrez.
Raw. Curated by Luky Cancio
The driving force behind her work stems from childhood memories and recollections of experiences as a young girl growing up where religion and life’s delicate teeter-totter with life and death existed.

Bruce McQuiston
His work combines organic forms with figurative reference and a contemporary flow. The pieces are constructed from hurricane salvaged lumber from the South Florida region. His recent Bronze and Aluminum castings utilize the wood pieces as the source for the mold making

Natalie Silva, Mona Lisa, Mixed Media on Canvas, 2009 ,
67 x 63 in

Until October 30
Natalie Silva. Girls with Guns
“ Girls with guns” paintings are a series of women casually, and poignantly, based on those heroines who played lead roles in crime thrillers from the late 60s and 70s. The works of this Italian artist is the result of “victim vs. predator”, a sort of full circle on the series done in the past. It’s a playful vision regardless of the lethality of the gun, although guns don’t kill… people do. These paintings reflect a power struggle of the perception or prejudice we have toward the symbolism of weapons and the softness of women.

Almost 40 years later, Natalie Silva decided to pay homage those inspirational women by bringing them back to the XXI century in a very personal way, giving them life with her artistic and talented sensibility.

Natalie Silva considers herself a painter, not an artist. In the duration of her career, one of her most predominant features that have been constantly pointed out is her conciseness. The gift and the curse of always being present, to experience things as they happen, is an aspect that can give us both great pleasures as well as great sufferings simultaneously, depending on our sense of humor and on chance. This attribute is blatantly depicted when looking at one of her paintings.

Linear Memories.
“My cartographies are great maps profoundly deployed, as though if the geographic letter of a territory acquired an additional dimensionality of the plan. These are maps that have to be acted. It is in this sense that I want to propose you understand the scenery of these cartographies, like theaters of territories: scenes where space makes space its own representation a representation that is not given beforehand but that is activated in each placement; that is, in each new journey somebody takes over its planes.”

De Villasante

Horacio Sapere. Vickie Pierre. Solo Shows Carlos de Villasante. Project Room

Horacio Sapere. Alternate Combinations
Alternate Combinations builds on the implication of a long-standing body of work connecting the many threads of this thoughtful painter's work. While predominantly known as a painter, Sapere has always brought a conceptual approach to the media.

Vickie Pierre.You Poor, Sweet, Innocent Thing
“Within my paintings and drawings, rubber stamp imprints of fictional female icons are converted into a world where the line between abstraction and representation is blurred. The works are primarily comprised of the dresses of the "three graces" of the fairy tale animation world: Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella....”

Carlos de Villasante–.Short Form
“In theatre, Short Form follows an improvisational spontaneous format. My paintings likewise follow intuitive suggestions, accidents and interventions. I use automatic mark-making to oppose precise graphic representation in my portraits. I then rely on my sensibilities to suggest which next step to take, much like in theatre when the audience’s suggestions guide the performance.”
