2014 Harrison St, Florida 33019
Gallery 2014, an exciting, new nonprofit concept established to bring the community together to celebrate, enjoy, learn and acquire exceptional artwork of emerging artists from around the globe, is a host venue for the worldwide April 27 Slow Art Day. The all-volunteer event has a simple mission: to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
At Gallery 2014, participants will look at five works of pre-assigned art at Gallery 2014 for 10 minutes each, and then meet together over lunch to discuss their experience at the nearby Cinquecento Pizza Gelato & Café. To sign up and for more information, visit www.slowartday.com.
Slow Art Day began after founder Phil Terry spent 30 minutes looking at Hans Hoffmann’s 1943 painting Fantasia at the Jewish Museum’s 2008 exhibition Action/Abstraction. The experience sparked an idea to help those outside the art world better appreciate museums’ offerings.
The newest member of South Florida’s art community, the Sanjuan-Brown Hollywood Arts Foundation, Inc. d/b/a Gallery 2014 provides an unprecedented opportunity for new and emerging artists from developing countries, as well as local and student artists who might otherwise lack access to the public, to showcase their quality, original pieces and sell them for fair value. Current artwork on display represents the talents of approximately 20 artists, including some referred to Gallery 2014 by Hispanic Unity, the largest non-profit organization in Broward County dedicated to serving the Hispanic population. Background info on all the current Gallery 2014 artists is available at www.gallery2014.com/artists.html.Be sure to tell them Soul Of Miami sent you!
