The upcoming shows of Jennifer Lefort and Andrew Casto are featured in the Miami Edition of the March/April South Florida Luxury Guide as The Art of Wandering.
Jennifer Lefort explores abstraction’s winding roads with paintings featuring punches of color and distorted patterns. Ceramic sculptor Andrew Casto parallels Lefort’s showcase with Revelatory Derivé, which examines Guy Debord’s psychological theory of derivé (meaning “drifting” in French), a method of experimental behavior in urban society, which involves the “rapid passage through varied ambiances.”
Mindy Solomon Gallery is pleased to present the inaugural solo exhibitions of artists Jennifer Lefort and Andrew Casto. Both artists explore the possibilities of abstraction through movement, gesture, surface and palette. On view at the gallery March 11th–May 14th, 2017 at 8397 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami in Little River. An opening reception will take place Saturday, March 11th from 6-9pm; artist Andrew Casto will attend.

“Both exhibitions are composed of a dozen works each, elegantly distributed in the space of the gallery. There is a thematic similarity: the interest in historical memory from two different perspectives. The first emphasizes the consequences of the story in the individual consciousness of the artist, that is, in history with capital letters; while the second delves into the intimacy of memories, but at a much more concrete, personal, everyday level.”
We are honored that Osamu Kobayashi and Paul Pagk were selected as one of May’s five Critic’s Choice features by Claire Breukel on Art Circuits this week. This show was a beautiful union of two artists who share a love of the materiality of paint, the delights of vibrant color, and the varieties of spatial experience found in abstraction.
Check out the Art Circuits homepage this month for featured images by Kobayashi and Pagk. You can read more about the exhibit here.

“Its contrast of muddy washes and drippy pop colors along with the jury-rigged support structures epitomize the aesthetics of life along and around Highway 41.”

“His works have an effortless manner that can sometimes make art seem like a little work of magic, as in the floor piece, Homage to Rafa (2015).”

Back in June we posted about new gallery artist Roberto Gomez making waves in the Miami art scene. We are thrilled to have Roberto with us at Mindy Solomon Gallery. Check out this glowing review of his June solo show “What Happens When Nothing Happens,” and this beautiful spread of his feature in Ocean Drive magazine:
This summer, gallery artists Kate MacDowell and Wookjae Maeng participated in a group exhibition at Peters Projects in Santa Fe, New Mexico, entitled “Trophies and Prey: A Contemporary Bestiary,” curated by noted ceramics scholars Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio. We were thrilled to see the work represented in Art Ltd.
Congratulations, Kate and Wookjae, on this well-deserved praise!
