Top Five Second Saturday Art Walk Shows for January

By | January 6th, 2011 | 2 Comments

With the Second Saturday Art Walk two days away, we asked South Florida artist and Art. Music. Film. Whatever. blogger Misael Soto to compile a list of five must-see shows.

1. The Outer Limits – Felice Grodin and Samantha Salzinger @ Dimensions Variable

Two great and distinct artists come together for an exciting installation that promises to “explore the overlaps between space, place, and artifact.” Grodin is a Bologna-born artist who now lives and works in Miami Beach, drawing, sculpting, and doing collage. Salzinger is a photographer with a surreal eye who chairs the art department at Palm Beach State College. Somehow, this unexpected pairing makes total sense. Not to be missed.

2. Bhakti Baxter, Daniel Milewski, and Marcos Valella @ Gallery Diet

Featuring work by two of Miami’s hottest painters and one of its best installation artists, Gallery Diet will divide up its recently expanded space for January and feature the three artists separately.

3. Chris Dean: Transylvania @ Harold Golen Gallery

Delving into ideas of transformation and acceptance in the context of Detroit’s troubled landscape and using the unusual medium of lenticular holography, this series of 3D works should be a feast for the eyes.

4. Arnold Mesches and Clifton Childree @ Dorsch Gallery

This month’s artwalk provides the perfect opportunity to view some excellent works by Arnold Mesches and Clifton Childree, on view at Dorsch Gallery until January 22. Along with a stunning installation, Childree’s exhibit includes sculptures with film and audio components in the form of old arcade machines.

5. Carol Prusa @ Bernice Steinbaum Gallery

While I would like to see her expand her practice, Carol Prusa never disappoints. Her dome works leave viewers awestruck like very few in South Florida can.
