Jennifer Lefort and Andrew Casto featured in Luxury Guide

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.

Ali Smith is currently featured in the group exhibition “Art for Art’s Sake: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation” curated by Billie Milam Weisman, on view at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, CA from December 11, 2016 – February 19, 2017.

“This exhibit explores the potentials of abstraction. It features over forty, primarily young American artists that expand upon the conventions of modern art to create lush works revealing an interest in subjective, transcendental and visionary experiences.”

Ali’s work for the exhibition is also spotlighted in the museum’s ad in the January/February issue of Artltd—an impactful issue as it will be distributed by the publisher at the LA and Palm Springs Art Fairs.

“It’s a dynamite exhibit and your painting is literally a large part of it. Thank you!”
-Suzanne Bellah, Carnegie Art Museum/Oxnard

A Mass on Foreign Ground // New World School of the Arts Select BFA Graduate Show, Curated by Eddie Negron

Featuring work by Ani Gonzalez, Joshua Veasey, Elizabeth Newberry, Richard Sanchez, German Caceres, and Jessica Martin, this special exhibition of select BFA graduates was influenced by a collective trip through China sponsored by New World School of the Arts. Curated by Miami-based gallery owner Eddie Negron, the artists manifest themes of placement and displacement through the relativity of nearness and remoteness.  Join us for an opening reception with these six recent local graduates as they make the transition from pupil to professional.

On View August 20-September 17
Opening Reception // Saturday, August 20th 7-9pm
