Once again, Life Is Art is happy to join with Yo Miami for their Average Joe Art Sale New Years’ ResYolution Edition. Yo Miami has dedicated 10% of sales to be donated to Life Is Art! Plus, for this special edition, we have the Mega Art Auction. And, we will be celebrating Annette’s BIG Birthday! It’s a new year and Yo Miami is ready to put our money where our mouth is again.

The whole idea behind these Average Joe sales was to make it possible for everyday people to be able to support their local artists by presenting art work in a laid back environment at affordable prices.

In the interest of showing you how dedicated we are to supporting the local art scene, this month we’re donating a portion of all sales to an organization that has been doing just that for way longer than we have, Life Is Art, Inc.

As an added twist, this year we’ll be ending an online auction at the end of the night for the 3 massive 10x10ft canvases which were painted as a live collaboration between 6 local artists at Spectrum. Each of the 3 pieces will be up for online auction starting the week before the sale, and visitors will have the opportunity to bid live throughout the day before it closes at the end of the night. The teamups are Tee Davis (aka TeePop) + Jay Bellicchi (aka REMOTE), Ruben Ubiera + Eleazar Delgado, Monique Lassooij + Daniel Fila (aka Krave Art).

We have a fresh batch of visiting artists, along with our Resident Artists selling everything from original works, to limited edition prints, and merchandise to suit any budget, from $5 all the way up to $500
(Disclaimer: Resident Artists may have more expensive work in their studios)

Resident Artists:

Visiting Artists: tba

Cog Nomen our band in residence will be back with us, gracing us with their psychedelic tunes around 5-6pm.

So come support some talented local artists, or just come for the ping pong, old school video games, and good conversation; either way you’re bound to have a nice, fun, relaxing day.

Carla Fache opens her studio for Art Basel Week 2014
Wednesday Dec 3rd – 9am`1pm

Visitors will have the opportunity to have an intimate look inside the artist’s studio and learn more about her new works.

In her studio, Fache will have some of her recent works in exhibition. Among them, “Untitled” an acrylic big escale painting and a new installation.

Carla Fache is a chilean born Miami-based visual artist who explores the frontiers of color, space, balance and matter, through her paintings and installations.

Her work unfolds the juncture of parallel scenarios that occur simultaneously to quotidian realities, providing dimensions of escape against the society status quo, leverage a reconnection through her canvas portals.

Color is essential in Fache’s work; she explores its infinite combinations and balance through careful blending primary and secondary colors, re- contextualizing the concept of coexistence, time and universality; a return to the essential.

Her work employs a variety of materials including traditional canvas, but also introducing unusual artifacts, expanding outside of the two-dimensional plane of the canvas and into the surrounding environment.

“Opening the doors of my studio is like opening the door of color to my canvas’s mental space”, explains Fache.

Her more recent exhibitions include: Florida Museum for Women Artists, The Invisible Dog Art Center-New York, Armory Art Center- Palm Beach, Cambridge Art Association-Boston and Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. Some of the places where her work has been exhibited are: CIFO Cisneros Fontanels Arts Foundation, The Bass Museum of Art, Deering Estate at Cutler, Lowe Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art and Coral Gables Museum to mention a few.

Fache’s work has been included in many publications, such as: “Celeste Prize International 2011” New York, “White Hot Magazine”, “New York Art Collectors Book” NY, “Five centuries of Art” LA, “Libro de Arte Ibero Americano Contemporaneo” Argentina, “Studio Visit Magazine” by New American Paintings, Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald, Knight Arts, Miami New Times, SunPost, Sun-Sentinel, Miami Rail among others.
