Allegories for Time Closing Reception

Through these works, the viewer will perceive a glimpse into these artists' expressions and their understanding of the world around them. Moments, ideas, messages, stories, all fleeting, but captured in allegories for time.

Drawing Exploration II @MiguelRodezArtProjects

You are cordially invited to attend a juried group show featuring works of some of Miami's best.  Hope to see you there.


Saturday, September 21, 2013

from 7-10 pm


Drawing Exploration II

Miguel Rodez Art Projects

4229 SW 75 Avenue

Miami, FL 33155



Miguel Rodez Art Projects is pleased to present the second iteration of it's focus on the drawing medium. The gallery's initial show "Drawn from Within" was a huge success when it was unveiled in September 2012. The 2013 version contrasts techniques and styles that offer huge conceptual diversity within the gallery's space. Curating such a show is no easy task; you will be the judge who will mercilessly deliver the verdict with a thumbs up or down. There is no in-between here.

As the previous show, Drawing Exploration II explores the versatility of the drawing medium and features works in graphite, ink and charcoal. Some of the pieces offered are huge works while others are huge in their impact.

Elegant fluid lines guide the viewers through vortexes of the dynamic work of one artist. These are contrasted against somber thought-provoking pieces with a more spiritual spin. A refined organic morphism piece is bound to draw attention to itself. Other pieces take on the challenge of portraiture. Henry Flagler, for example, gets a contemporary makeover by one artist who treated one of Florida's most famous pioneers to a gentle doze of deconstruction, while another work treats the viewer to the impeccable refinement of classic academic technique. There is more shown at the space, but the idea is to see you there on September 21. So, please join the event and invite your friends.

Drawing Exploration II takes place at the Miguel Rodez Art Projects space during the award-winning Bird Road Art Walk, which is held the 3rd Saturday of each month, just east of Tropical Park. Over 30 art galleries, studios and workshops open to the public every third Saturday of the month in this Historic Art District.
