Miami Art Week will host the MUSE Art Fair December 3-8, 2019 in the The Gates Hotel South Beach. This fair is brought to you in partnership with MUSE Modern & Contemporary Art Fair. The collection will feature female Bahamian artists, as well as various multicultural artists from the Caribbean. Proceeds from this reception will go towards providing aid to those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamian Islands.
MUSE Art Fair will display a variety of artwork including paintings, ceramics, photographs, sculptures and augmented reality art. There will also be a panel discussion, live art performances and a master class instructed by internationally known artists.
Bahamian Female Artists
The five female artists that will be featured at the MUSE Art Fair, have been playing an active role in contemporary art in Nassau, Bahamas, by defining Bahamian artistic experiences through cultural history and identity. These artists include oil painter Gabrielle Banks; documentary photographer and multimedia artist Tamika Galanis; interdisciplinary artist Anina Major; oil painter and performance artist Jodi Mannis; and ceramist, sculptor, and painter, Averia Wright. This Miami based art fair will also showcase the work of multicultural artists from the Caribbean.
MUSE Art Fair
The Gates Hotel South Beach already has a collection of aerial beach photography on display throughout its property. The photographer, Jorge de la Torriente’s pieces capture a bird’s eye view of the azure coastline. One that visitors can book to see for themselves, with a VIP helicopter experience with the photographer himself to capture their own aerial shots.
In addition, there will also be an opportunity to participate in local textile artist Karelle Levy’s interactive installation, KRELwear: The Interknit, a “web” that encourages participants to add stitches to the community art project.
The MUSE Art Fair will be open to the public daily from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. December 4th until Saturday, December 7th, and from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday December 8th.
