Alberto Linero Gallery Turns New Leaf With Fall Season,
Focused Direction, Curator Adriana Carvalho & Pink Bastard Art Collective
Alberto Linero Gallery presents September, a group exhibition organized by art collective Pink Bastard, featuring the works of seven established Miami artists. Principal Alberto Linero, who renovated the space earlier this year and took reins of the galleryâ€™s artistic and business direction, is now tapping outside talent with guest curator, Adriana Carvalho (Pink Bastard, ArtCenter/South Florida, Art Miami â€œDirectorâ€™s Choiceâ€). September was conceptualized to inform the artistsâ€™ view of day-to-day life in Miami.
Slated to coincide with Wynwoodâ€™s monthly Second Saturday Art Walk, the opening reception will feature a selection of fine wine and cheeses. The event is free and open to the public, and the show will be on view through October 8, 2011.

â€œWe are embracing September as a fresh start and new beginning,â€ said principal Linero. â€œOur city is so very rich with talent that we invited Adriana and her group, â€˜Pink Bastard,â€™ to celebrate Miami and its everyday occurrences and idiosyncrasies through an alternative lens.â€
Participating artists include: Eddie Arroyo, Adriana Carvalho, Charles Falarara, Kevin Foltz, Cory Foote, Kathy Kissik, Franklin Sinanan and David Zalben. A brief description of select artistsâ€™ works follows:
– Photographer Cory Foote creates images in traditional black and white film of subjects ranging from portraits to beautiful natural landscapes. A selection of Footeâ€™s pieces will probe the viewer with undertones of melancholy and atypical use of color and hues.
– â€œA simple line of wire can tell a story.â€ David Zalben uses metal wire to animate lifeâ€™s simplicities and push his own boundaries as an artist, reducing ideas to their very core by representing them as an outline. In this exhibition, the artist will be showcasing a special collection of wire-written poems.
– Adriana Carvalho describes her work as delicately transforming items, such as metal and cloth products, into pieces that stand for her dreams, fears and social commentary. September will showcase a series of Adrianaâ€™s new works, including her Insomnia installation, which highlights the poetry of everyday life using a pillow and a rug.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
