In anticipation of Art Basel/Miami Art Week, wine and art lovers will gather for a wine tasting and art exhibit at Wine by the Bay located across the street from the American Airlines Arena. Over 200 wine and art clients and guests will enjoy a relaxing and enlightening evening sampling some of the shop’s best California wine while viewing the artwork of local artist Valeria Yamamoto (Argentina/Japan), sculptures by Claudia Hakim (Colombia) and paintings by Fahar (Germany/Iraq.) Special guests are Matteo Bartoli and Mara Sartore, co-founders of My Art Guides – an online and “pocket-sized” print guide to international art fairs including Art Basel and Art Basel Miami Beach, and Venice Biennale Art and Architecture. The duo (from Venice, Italy) also organize international events such as The Dali Universe, Edge of Arabia, and Circuito Off (Italy’s most important video festival.) Free copies of My Art Guides Miami 2012 will be distributed to guests. This pocket-sized guide contains the descriptions of Art Basel Miami and satellites art fairs, art exhibitions and other events in town. There will be also a listing with descriptions of all main private collections, museums, city art galleries and art spaces. My Art Guide Miami 2012 contains also a selection and description of the best restaurants, boutique, clubs, hotels… and a complete agenda of all openings, events and parties. All the venues will be marked on detailed city maps.
