Venezuelan architect, goldsmith and sculptor, Luz María Charlita, presents her latest show, “Nature Redepicted” at Gallery G & S Alternative Space in Hollywood, during the next edition of Downtown Hollywood ArtWalk next Saturday April 18th.
Known for her metalwork interpreting the perfection of nature forms, Luz María Charlita returns to South Florida with this exhibition where the “Ecologic Rains: Green Rains” and Flower Rains” are focal point of this proposal.
Charlita began practicing his career as an architect in 1979, but it was her passion for detail that led her to specialize in interior design and go to work in Spain. There she began to connect with the metal work and goldsmith. As she returned to Venezuela she was devoted to manual work choosing as her material, metal intervened by fire. To these early works she added natural unworked stones like quartz and ammonites (mollusk fossils). Then she began with semiprecious stones and more elaborate pieces resulting in a collection of fine jewelry.
“There comes a time when you realize your jewel becomes larger and has the potential to be a three-dimensional project. This can be a sculpture, a painting, a piece in three dimensions, ” says Charlita. And then is when she takes the next step: metal sculpture Luz Maria also confesses not being afraid of the scale because she worked as an architect. “I had to design from buildings to utilitarian objects”
The Perfect Forms of Nature as a Source of Inspiration
The artistic work of Luz María Charlotte, has evolved not only in relation to the scale and materials but also the forms it represents. She went through an exploratory stage, from the origin of live beings, their forms, their designs and the search for perfection in natural forms such as snail, considered by her, a perfect structure.
She started working spirals and mazes as archaic forms. “The spiral works on its own axis, is progressive, it’s like DNA. It has upward movement and that inner strength of a tornado’s vortex ” she explains. She is also admits being fascinated by the geometry of the labyrinths and mystery it represents.
Metal is her greatest ally. She considers it a very noble material, becoming a truly fascinating element when it is intervened by fire. “Fire is my ally. The experience of working metal under flames at night is unique, especially working with copper. It shows colors almost like a rainbow. It’s almost supernatural “.
Charlita’s work goes from the original trace of the beings on earth through fossil, to more complex forms. In this second stage, she begins to interpret nature in its vegetation form resulting in her “Ecologic Rains: Flower Rains and Green Rains”. “I went from working fossils to designing a flower, but not the flower per se, but the flower inside a rain. It was a repetition work I wanted to do as an installation”.
Luz María returns with her work to Miami because she believes that the city will soon become an important point in the US, thanks to the confluence of cultures and young people that gives movement to the city. “Miami is a city with an impressive artistic thrust. There are a multitude of cultural events. It is already attracting many people, not just summer tourists, also cultural ones, ” she said.

A presentation at the Church of Perpetual Life in Hollywood, Florida will discuss breakthroughs in organ transplantation medicine.

Experts in the field believe that replacement of failed cells, tissues, or organs could cause over 30% of all deaths in the United States to be substantially postponed—increasing the chance of living to age 90 by more than 10 times.

Unfortunately, the supply of transplantable organs is much less than the demand. There are long waiting lists of potential organ transplant recipients, most of whom die before an organ becomes available. In the United States, it estimated that only about 2% of the potentially needed organ transplants are carried-out. Even when organs are transplanted, they may be poorly matched to the recipient, requiring immune suppression measures that decrease the quality and quantity of life of the recipient.

Come to the meeting to learn about breakthroughs in transplantation of heart, kidney, liver, lung, and other organs that could save many lives of people who die prematurely because of organ disease or failure.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 7:15 pm (doors open at 6 pm)

The service will be held at the Church of Perpetual Life

Tickets for loitering will not be issued here while this talented and playful street art team transforms the west-facing wall of 1909 Harrison Street in Downtown Hollywood in just a few weeks. The community welcomes Chaz and Bob Gibson, aka “The London Police”, to the neighborhood as the creators of the 12th DHMP wall mural. The community is looking forward to seeing the artful enhancement this British duo has in store. All are invited to join a “Live Painting Performance” with TLP at the mural site on Saturday night, September 27th from 7-10pm.

The Downtown Hollywood Mural Project is successfully rounding its second year with an impressive roster of artists including Daniel Fila a.k.a. “Krave”, David “Lebo” LeBatard, Jessy Nite, Luis Pinto, Edward Mendieta, Ruben Ubiera, 2alas, Evoca1, Michelle Weinberg and Tati Suarez, all who have contributed amazing work to the community. Selected by a review committee, the project invites artists whose mural proposals promote health, happiness, and well-being.

When asked about the mural he and his partner are gearing up to begin next month, artist Chaz Gibson tells us, “We always try to project a positive theme in our pieces. Our signature characters have happy faces and are depicted doing everyday things in the world they live in. In this particular piece one of our characters is making adjustments to the aquarium he is looking after. As we are near the sea we threaded an aquatic theme with science and nature with an overall moral of looking after each other.”
The duo has clearly come up with a mural concept that speaks to Hollywood and incorporates attributes that this community can connect with. “We love the idea of the aquatic theme and the fact that the mural will promote togetherness. That is what Hollywood is all about and The London Police really get that about us”, remarks Lisa Liotta, Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency’s Operations Manager.
Since inception, The Downtown Hollywood Mural Project has garnered the attention of locals, visitors and art enthusiasts alike. Giselle Perez, a realtor in Miami comments on her experience, “The live mural painting events are really quite awesome to attend! No two events have been similar and each artist brings their own vibe. My friends and I come up from Miami for a bite to eat at one of the eclectic eateries on Hollywood Blvd. or Harrison Street. We pop into a few of the crafty boutiques and art galleries and really enjoy walking the streets to see the mural walls throughout the downtown. Often times, the artists have added or change something, which is always a nice surprise! The live mural performances are really fun to attend. Meeting new people who have an appreciation for art and community is always a good time!”

The next Downtown Hollywood Artwalk will take place Saturday, August 16th from 7-10pm. During the monthly event, participating Downtown Hollywood galleries and shops stay open late, offering complimentary drinks and appetizers for visitors while hosting artwork from an array of artists who display their work on-site for the night’s special event. Don’t be surprised to hear the sounds of a harp, a harmonica or a trio of ukuleles as live music on street corners complement the event, adding magical sounds to the eclectic scene.

During July’s ArtWalk, ArtCenter 2020, located on Harrison Street, featured artist Daniel
Pontet, who, by popular demand, has become an ArtWalk staple. Pontet entertained the
on-looking crowd with his impulse art, a fusion of music and painting, accompanied by
the rhythmic beats of performers from Hollywood’s own Resurrection Drums. The
dynamic team will excite on-lookers again with fresh work on Saturday, August 16th.

This month’s upcoming Downtown Hollywood ArtWalk features many exciting artists
including Victor- Hugo Vaca II, showing at the Cinema Paradiso Theater on Hollywood
Boulevard. Victor- Hugo Vaca II will be present and will be available to answer any
questions about his art. Internationally acclaimed artist Jose Rementeria will be featured
at the ArtsPark Gallery in Young Circle. Rementeria is best known for his work “Human
Beans,” traveling around the globe as part of the Coexistence Collection by the Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem. The artist will be present to discuss and show his new work.

Gallery 2014 will feature “Nature in Another Perspective” by Mago’z. Several artists will
be painting live in the gallery during Artwalk for visitors to watch.

“The Downtown Hollywood monthly Artwalk provides another opportunity for the
community to visit the Downtown Hollywood businesses, meet working artists and
purchase affordable artwork. This event has a great vibe and pulls in a nice crowd
including art lovers, locals and visitors who enjoy a night out,” comments Lisa Liotta,
Redevelopment & Operations Manager for the Hollywood Community Redevelopment
Agency (CRA).

The event continues to grow and is complemented by The Downtown Hollywood Mural
Project, another Hollywood CRA place-making initiative, where contemporary outdoor
murals are painted at key locations in Downtown Hollywood in an effort to enhance and
enrich the existing cultural fabric of the Downtown Hollywood community, thereby
attracting more art related activities, businesses and events. During the monthly
ArtWalk, mural artists can often be seen painting their murals live. This is a very cool
enhancement that has been noted throughout the South Florida arts community.

The most romantic place to bike in South Florida

Brian and Naomi at the Sea Ranch Center

A little romance at the Sea Ranch Shopping Strip in Sea Ranch Lakes along our bicycle adventure on A1A.

This past Sunday night, my fiancé, Naomi and I embarked on a 65 mile bicycle journey along A1A from Parkland to Coral Gables. The propose of the trip: to see if we could do it.

I will preface this by saying that I’ve made October my personal “No Car, No Facebook Month”, also to see if I could do it (more on this in a future post). Naomi was gracious enough to go along with my scheme to bike the entire east coast of Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. We live in the middle of suburban Coral Gables, and regularly bicycle commute as far as Little Haiti, Wynwood, Downtown and Miami Beach, but by no means, had we been training for a long distance ride like this one.
