Maiart Series Hosts Italian Art Design 2/23/11

Continuing the Successful MaiArt Series, Maitardi Features Alex Turco Art Designer in February

MaiArt, a cocktail gathering every last Wednesday of the month celebrating local and international artists, gets back to its Italian roots on Wednesday February 23rd, 2011 at 6pm with Alex Turco Art Designer Gallery and its made-in-Italy innovative mix of art, fashion and design. Guests enjoy complimentary Prosecco and tapas until 7pm and music by Soul P until 9pm.

Alex Turco Art Designer and Maitardi form a natural match for February’s MaiArt Series event. The pieces will be displayed throughout the oak-shaded patio on Wednesday February 23rd and will remain at Maitardi for the next four weeks inside the restaurant. Alex Turco’s works include photography, multi-media graphics and manually manipulated materials that aim at the mission of “transporting and merging art into lifestyle”. The concept creates a new take on artful living with inventive art objects that enhance personal spaces and give new life and style to settings.

March’s MaiArt event will bring Michele Palmisano’s work. Michele is part of the Graspa Group family and his pieces focus on light and movement of elements like water as well as manipulations of plexiglass photography. MaiArt is scheduled for Wednesday March 30th at 6pm.

Located in the oak-shaded plaza corner of NE 2nd avenue and 39th Street (163 NE 39th Street), also known as the heart of the Miami Design District, the risto-bar, a European concept combining ristorante and bar, opened Fall 2009. Maitardi’s experience rests on a casual, outdoors and sociable ambiance, delicious tapas meant for sharing and friendly and professional service. The location has retained its architectural design with the floor to ceiling leaf-mosaic façade along with the native oak trees throughout the patio giving it an irresistible appeal to relax, catch up on work or a book, hang out with friends for happy hour or lunch with a client. Complimentary Wi-Fi and outside bar available.
