Tesla Electric Roadster at Humberto Castro Exhibition Reception 11/5/10

Friday, November 5th from 7 to 10 pm
169 Madeira Avenue,
Coral Gables (Miami)
Florida, 33134, USA

We are collaborating with Tesla, whose hot new electric roadster zooms 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, during Gables Gallery Night. Come take a test drive, enjoy some wine and see Humberto Castro’s “Traces of Migrations” exhibition on Friday, November 5th from 7 to 10 pm. His ten-foot tower of suitcases will bring back memories of your own travels and a contemplation of the stories that each of these cases holds. Be sure to read about the Tesla roadster below in our Event section.

For those who are interested in master works, among our recent acquisitions from private collections is a Roberto Matta oil on canvas and a Manuel Mendive mixed media on paper from 1991. We have an active secondary market these days, so if you are looking for a particular artist or thinking about selling anything, just let us know.

Cuban émigré artist Humberto Castro considers his third solo exhibition at ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries, “Traces of Migrations,” one of the three seminal exhibitions of his extensive career.

Although he has held 52 solo shows and participated in 126 group exhibitions in prestigious galleries and museums throughout Europe and the United States, the artist considers three of his exhibitions to be most important. “The first one was back in 1978 when I was only 17 and showed more than 100 drawings,” he says. “The second was my first exhibition in Paris. And now there is this one.”

In her Miami Herald profile of Castro during his 15-year retrospective at ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries, Fabiola Santiago noted how the Paris paintings broke loose from “drawings on paper and etchings of contorted, chained figures struggling to free themselves” into works that were “exuberant in their splash of color.” She quotes him as saying “I went wild.”
