Seven Contemporary Cuban Artists Exhibition opens in the Grand Atrium during Art Walk! This exhibition is composed of artwork from creators of different aesthetic tendencies, expressing moods, feelings and points of view on dissimilar subjects. Diverse interests about the artist’s surroundings, everyday issues, landscapes and objects that have caught their attention have been captured in their art. The focus of this encounter is on variants of artistic expressions, shining a light on the beautiful diversity of trends and the various ways of assuming art. Participating artists are Aimeé Pérez, Rigoberto Mena, Lía Galletti, Ismael Gómez Peralta, Asbel Dumpierre, Armando Pérez Alemán, and Víctor Gómez. All of which now live in Miami, bringing with them a strong Cuban influence in their work.


Also opening during Art Walk, Carded: Miniature Masterpieces IV, a group exhibition curated by Cesar Aguilera, will be showing in the Capital Gallery. Although miniature art has been in existence for centuries tracing its heritage back to the illustrated manuscripts of scribes in the Far East and Europe prior to the 15th century, the origin of the modern trading card is associated with cigarette cards first issued by the US-based Allen and Ginter tobacco company in 1875. They were the precursors of the sports cards and other trading cards. Artist Ndola Pensy introduced the artist trading card idea to SWFL in 2017 with great reception among artists and this new tradition was born!
