Visual Dialogue – Wynwood ART BASEL Week

The Art Place Wynwood, presents Visual Dialogue, a showcase of 12 artists during ART BASEL WEEK 2012. Exhibitions runs from December 1 – 17th, 2012. The gallery is hosting an Opening Reception on Wednesday, December 5th, 6-9 PM.

Director, Danilo Gonzalez, has this to say about “Visual Dialogue”.

“When I arrived in the Wynwood Art District four years ago the future of Wynwood was far from certain. Today, we see that the Art District is at a crucial point in its development process. My position as both an artist and a gallery director has provided me an unique perspective on these changes. I have witnessed the area transform itself into the interesting and stylish community that it is today. This has given me the opportunity to work with international artists such as Sara Roitman, the impressive photographer from Ecuador; Ada Balcacer, Eliu Almonte and Grimaldy Polanco from the Dominican Republic; extraordinary German expressionist Horst Kohem; and established artist, Delia Solari from Argentina. Wynwood has attracted Florida talents too, including sculptor, Deborah Gregg, environmentally conscious painter, Molly Bo, painter and spacial designer Debra Yates, abstract painter, Lauren Fogg and prominent artist, Carol Fryd. It is obvious that the Wynwood Art District has become a meeting point in the global art community for artists and art appreciators alike. I am proud to present “Visual Dialogues,” an exhibition whose objective is to expose the interconnection between different generations and the perspective of each artist that are connected yet different.

Together we are carving a space in the art world for the future of Wynwood.”

Marcela Garcia Bonini Opening Reception

The Art Place Wynwood, proudly presents Recent Work, paintings by Argentinean artist Marcela Garcia Bonini in The Project Room.  Opening Reception is Friday Nov. 9 , 6-9 PM; Wynwood Art Walk,  Saturday Nov. 11, 6-11 PM.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she lived until 2002, Bonini now in resides in Miami, Fl, since December 2011. The Art Place Wynwood is pleased to introduce the Wynwood Art District to the metaphysical paintings of Marcela Garcia Bonini.

Bonini has this to say about her latest works, “Miami has so much to offer in terms of color, sounds, scents, a rich culture and warm and friendly people. What I love the most to reflect on my paintings is the luxurious vegetation: the trees, the orchids, the parks, the lawns. I have my own vision of these and I have tried to reflect it on the works in the show. My idea is to show the power I see beyond the trunks and leaves, the energy that the trees have and transmit through their colors, shades and movement. I hope that my paintings can transmit the positive vibes that I feel when I immerse myself in nature.”

If you are intrigued, Bonini is offering an Artist Talk at 7 PM on Friday during the Opening Reception where we will learn more about her inspiration and techniques.

Miami Salsa II: Carol Fryd

The Art Place Wynwood, presents Miami Salsa II, paintings and collages by prominent Miami based artist Carol Fryd.  Opening reception is Wednesday Oct. 10 , 6-11 PM; Wynwood Art Walk,  Saturday Oct. 13 , 6-11 PM.

Miami Salsa returns home from the Museo de las Casas Reales in Santo Domingo DR. Curated by the country’s top art critic, Abil Peralta Aguero it opened March 20, 2012 with a gala reception attended by  the Israeli ambassador to the DR, Members of the Dominican Government and Dominican artists and collectors.

A native Floridian who moved to Miami Beach at age two, Fryd co-founded Miami’s first women’s art coop, The Continuum Gallery.  There on fifty first street on Miami Beach ten fiercely serious women artists brought such top art luminaries as John Chamberlain, Betty Parsons, Professor Tom Banshoff of Brown University, Jack Flam , Matisse expert, Walter Darby Bannard , Peter Kahn,  and the famous photographer Roman Vishniac to Miami Beach.  Women’s issues remain a motif of Fryd’s work.  Goddesses and self portraits dot her collages.

But, it is the bright colors and salsa rhythms that are front and center of this show. Diane Camber, Director of the Bass Museum from 1980 until 2007 referred to her work as a “transcendent feast” and Elisa Turner said “Fryd has pagan grace and power.” Danilo Gonzalez, Director of The Art Place Wynwood describes Fryd as “a pioneer of digital art, fearlessly creating a language of sublime constructivism uniquely her own.”

Carol Fryd hails from the Hans Hofmann tradition, having studied extensively with his New York star pupils James Billmyer and Nieves Billmyer. A colorist, the excitement and hot juicy hues of her palette are matched only by the intensity and heat of the Miami Sun. Twentieth century artistic influences include Bonnard, Stuart Davis, Picasso and Matisse, but her voice is distinctly her own.  Fryd continues to push the envelope by exploring the use of computer generated drawings that find their way into her large works on canvas. Upcoming Museum shows include a one person show, Bible Stories Reexamined at the Jewish Museum of South Florida, May 20 through November 2013 and Master and Student: James Billmyer and Carol Fryd at the Museo del Arte Moderno in the DR.

Introducing Our Newest Talent

We are  thrilled to introduce The Art Place Wynwood’s newest House Artists, Debra Yates and Lauren Fogg!  A collection of works by both of our talented artists will be available for viewing this coming August 11 during the Wynwood Art District 2nd Saturday Artwalk 5-10 PM. Interested collectors may contact theartplacewynwood@gmail.com for additional available paintings.

DEBRA YATES

As an abstract painter/spatial designer, I am always surprised by the changes in my work. These recent works seem to have a vibrant mind of their own. Large gestures are spontaneous and the paintings evolve from there. Part of the light and joyful feel of this body of work came in part from my studio at the Studios of Key West. My studio is large and sunny with high ceilings. I feel free to come and go, leave the work, lock the door…being there is a wonderful thing. Happiness and love of life is evident in every painting. My work has always been about proportion, scale, balance, color and texture. What happens after I begin a piece is always a surprise. Line and shape create a harmony that when each painting is complete is in perfect balance. Colors change with my mood or the colors that I see on my island. Much of my inspiration stems from the 15 trips to Brazil to visit my dear friend and mentor, Roberto Burle Marx, and from my island roots.

LAUREN FOGG

From the time Lauren Fogg was born she has been a world traveler. Growing up in a military family in Germany, she had seen most of Europe by the time she was 7, which has engrained her with endless love for traveling. While she enjoys visiting cities of the world, her real passion is to explore the great outdoors and its natural wonders. Trips throughout North America, Europe and Asia’s vast wildernesses have become the muses for the painting of her abstracted landscapes. Lauren graduated from the University of West Florida with her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in 2009. She has been commissioned for multiple large scale works, including a painting for the University of West Florida’s Psychology Building entitled “It’s Quiet in Montana,” as well as works for her personal collectors in the Northwest Florida and Memphis, Tennessee areas. Lauren now lives in Memphis, where she has had a solo exhibition in downtown Memphis’ restaurant Flight as well as a solo exhibition in the Energy Gallery in Memphis’ South Main Art’s District. She works as a full time artist, focusing her energy on building up a large body of work that expresses her love of nature through the medium of oil paint.
