Etra Fine Art Presents Winter Group Show

Etra Saturday, December 8, 7-10pm - Etra Fine Art, 50 NE 40 Street, Miami Design District

As part of Art Basel 2012 and Miami Art Week, Etra Fine Art in Miami’s Design District, presents a “Winter Group Show” exhibiting the works of:  Rainer Lagemann, Christian Awe, Douglass Freed, Hunt Slonem, and Mario Velez.  The Opening Reception takes place on Saturday, December 8 and the exhibit runs through January 11, 2013. Encapsulating the spirit of Miami, this exhibit represents a microcosm of the variety of art presented to us at the peak of art season. From the hollow, metal squares that Rainer Lagemann (Germany) uses to sculpt the human form – a framework of the spirit and image of the body; the “resurrection of color” that restores emotional drama to abstraction found in Christian Awe’s (Berlin) paintings; landscapes by Douglass Freed (US) who names his paintings “structures” where shapes are fitted together to create a coherent whole; works of internationally renowned American artist Hunt Slonem who experiments with a unique method of cross-hatching to texturize his works; and Colombian artist Mario Velez, a minimalist artist who has been greatly inspired by the Bauhaus approach to design. This group show is a schema of all that the city has to offer in its unique, cultural diversity.
