"Allegories for Time" exhibit at Arts Festival Gallery

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival Gallery is having a grand opening on Saturday, August 2 from 6 to 9 pm. "Allegories for Time," is an exhibition curated by Ramon Lopez of Fine Art and Services, Inc. The exhibit represents works by a select group of South Florida artists from very different backgrounds, all part of a cultural mosaic that is complex, yet harmonious.

About the Artists:
Juan Travieso - uses geometric shapes and swatch-like gradients that overlap extremely detailed endangered species.  

Amliv Sotomayor - delicately renders figures that appear to be dreams.  

Jose L. Telot - combines powder, plaster, paints, and resin to illustrate the power of symbols in abstract atmospheric settings.  

Patricia Suau - captures ephemeral beauty through mixed media drawings that seem to dance.  

Sydney Graham - captures the visual poetry of everyday happenings through playful color and light.  

Mwanel Pierre-Louis - boldly represents timeless ideals through contemporary techniques.  

Ray Lopez - conveys the relationship between history and religion through juxtaposition and symbols.

Through these works, the viewer will perceive a glimpse into these artists' expressions and their understanding of the world around them. Moments, ideas, messages, stories, all fleeting, but captured in allegories for time.

The Gallery is located at the Mayfair Atrium, by the John Angee sculptures shown above.
