Artists from the U.S., England, Spain, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay will show around 50 original artworks that will be on sale. The proceeds will benefit the artists and NAEMIâ€™s goal of helping artists with mental illness from around the world.
NAEMI is an international organization dedicated to discovering, promoting and exhibiting work by artists with mental illness..
Founded in 1988, NAEMI has done pioneering work in addressing the needs of artists with disabilities. Our organizationâ€™s greatest leadership strengths are the strengths of its relationships with the local and global communities, as well as its tenacity to push ever further the mainstream boundaries of the arts.
NAEMIâ€™s deep concern with the lack of opportunity for artists with disabilities to have equal access to art exhibitions has led to the creation of notable exhibitions and catalog books reaching out to a wide-range of communities. As of yet, no other organization located in Miami offers this unprecedented opportunity to exhibit the unique quality of work or engage the community in discovering the value of this creative process. Our ultimate goal is to help these artists be recognized and fight the stigma that so often accompanies mental illness.

Andrew Atkinson didn’t always plan on being a drummer, but in his own words, “Once I got those sticks in my hands and started playing I knew that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.” He was 14.
Over time, he’d start experimenting with the rhythms of his island homeland, and by his senior year in art school, he was occasionally playing with the renowned New World Symphony under the direction of acclaimed conductor Michael Tilson Thomas. Already, a wide array of influences were taking hold of him.
After graduation, Andrew became one of the most in demand young drummers in Miami, playing with every type of band imaginable, including the reggae-ska band, The Monjees, opening for James Brown in 2002. He has also taught drums at the University of Miamiâ€™s Frost School of Music.
In 2006 Atkinson became the drummer for Othello Molineaux, former steel pan player for the legendary bassist Jaco Pastorious. It was in 2006 that the many influences came together as the Andrew Atkinson Quartet.
Featuring musicians from all over the globe who are just as comfortable with all kinds of amorphous rhythms, Atkinson’s Quartet is a true extension of his international zeal. They have recently played at the Jazz Gallery and Smallâ€™s in New York, and saxophonist Tivon Pennicott has recorded with Esperanza Spalding on her latest CD.
The Quartetâ€™s latest CD, â€œKeep Looking Forwardâ€, has just been released in 2011.
