Art Studio Miami and the Barry Gross Gallery present Art From The Heart: The Art Experience, exhibiting the work of the children from Art Studio Miami alongside the passionate artists from EXPOSED The Art Project.

In June 2011 we premiered our first annual exhibition at the Barry Gross Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Every year we will affiliate EXPOSED the Art Project with a charitable organizations to whom we will donate proceeds from the art sales. We also donate our time to the charities. The charity during the inaugural show was Art Studio Miami whose mission is to empower young minds by providing a safe location where youth are inspired and guided by artists, teachers and professional mentors who support the student’s education and career development through the integration of creative holistic arts.

Barry Gross spent several days giving art lessons to the children at Art Studio Miami in May. The students were able to experience Barry’s personal technique of incorporating textures and emotions into their work while using found objects from their own personal journeys.

The artwork resulting from that encounter will be on display at the Barry Gross Gallery August 5-20, 2011. Pre-Opening night on Friday August 5th will be celebrated by the children who created this work along with their families, Art Studio Miami affiliates, members of EXPOSED, and the general public.

Sales from the show will benefit and support Art Studio Miami to continue their programming for at risk youth. As well as sales of the young artist artwork, each member of EXPOSED the Art Project will donate one piece of art each to be sold to benefit the studio. The donation will include a drawing by Barry Gross, photography by Adela Holmes and Presscott McDonald and music by Neal Fox.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
