We are excited to announce the artists that will be exhibiting their artwork in the 3rd Annual “Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art + Music Show and we hope you will join us. This year’s tagline was inspired by the curator, Dana DellaCamera’s own journey allowing herself to “Be Seen” and no longer hide or be stopped by fear of judgment by others or herself.
“Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art and Music Show is a platform for artists to “Be Seen”, be vulnerable, and share their gifts, talents and message with the world. Cloud 9 is a world where you allow yourself to dream, trust, develop, risk, expand, take action and create without limitations! When we listen to our hearts and trust our inner selves we experience a burst of energy and discover pure joy.
All of the art that will be exhibited will be accompanied with a short paragraph from the artist as to why the pieces put them on “cloud 9″. The intention is for all who attend the exhibition to participate, leave inspired, empowered and alive.

The 3 floors of the art gallery will feature a variety of artists and styles from installation art to sculpture, oil/acrylic painting, illustration and mixed media. Artists: Alicia H. Torres, Amanda Walling, Claudia Polzer, Ellie Manso Kane , Josafat Miranda, Olga Lucia Vargas, Luz Marina Ramirez, Margarita Correa Ochoa, Maruchi Carmona, Maria Teresa d’Azuncena, Mary Polhmann, Nancy Desantis, Reine Le Bohec, Rosa Sanchez, Shade Aaronberg, and Stephanie Crystal Espinosa.

We’re so excited to present a selection of works by an extraordinary artist Alicia Viera. At 96 years old Alicia, continues to create art everyday as she has since she was a young girl studying at Cuba’s legendary San Alejandro Fine Arts Academy. We hope that you will join us on Saturday, February 21 during the Bird Road Art Walk to meet the artist and view her works.

The exhibit features a selection of figurative drawings and paintings from the 1950s to present day. Some of the work still bears a Cuban seal authenticating the artists ownership and granting permission to take it out of the country.

But the focus of Viera’s exhibit is her pictorial language of geometric abstraction and her exploration and mastery of new mediums. Bold, fluid, geometric forms and undulations of her previous work on paper and canvas are reinterpreted and presented in the form of ceramic sculptures, boxes and wall hangings.

All work is available for sale.

MANO Fine Art Project Space is the working studio of Miami-based artist MANO and an exhibition and project space for art related events. MANO Fine Art is one of the founding members of the Bird Road Art Walk that is held on the third Saturday of each month.
