Miami Beach’s only artist run collective, CANDO Arts Co-op, announces the opening of ‘Fresh’ with the introduction of Sol Gallery, and CAC’s new resident artists, Luis Valle and Sri Prabha.
The event will feature award winning art by artists Luis Valle and Sri Prabha. We will have a silent auction, art raffle, DJs, and live body painting by Luis Valle. Our opening night will be a visual and aural feast with DJs SpinnZinn and Sanedrac Hunter, and guitar noise by RomRod.
The CANDO Arts Co-op is a contemporary Art Center in Miami Beach that was founded by Ray Breslin, president of Collins Park Neighborhood Association(CPNA) in November, 2009. CANDO, which stands for Cultural Arts Neighborhood Districts Overlay, is in the Collins Park neighborhood. The historic building, known as Palm Court, is a work of art in itself, with archways framing tall display windows. Having been previously occupied by the W Hotel’s administrative offices, Sol Gallery’s interior is impeccably designed. Thought-provoking work of resident and guest artists is showcased in the contemporary atmosphere of ‘Sol Gallery’, and also used for rotating exhibits, open calls, classes, and special events.
As an artist run gallery, we want to create a place for growth for our artists, a place to be seen, and a place for experimentation. Sol Gallery will be a destination for great art events, workshops, classes, and a place to purchase artwork by local artists.
