Art Exhibit Showcases Spaces of Mysticism at the Artisan Lounge

Art Exhibit Showcases Spaces of Mysticism at the Artisan LoungeFriday, March 7, 6pm-10pm - The Artisan Lounge, 500 NE 1st Avenue (Christ Fellowship building), Miami

Artisan Lounge presents a solo exhibit featuring a dozen timeless and classically inspired paintings by artist Vesna Vera. Works of art such as Rising Star and The Hour Glass, which visually transports viewers into a state of internal reflection, comprise the theme of this open-to-the-public exhibition. Through the medium of oil on canvas, Vera’s aptly named “Meditations” series (alt. Exhibit) uses bold colors to convey mysterious yet ethereal notions of spiritual transcendence.

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Vera studied art extensively both in her native country, as well as in Miami, New York and Italy. Based in Miami, the mid-career artist has displayed at countless galleries and fairs throughout Florida, New York and overseas over the course of the past two decades. She has been featured in such notable publications as The Miami Herald and El Universal, and was also interviewed by Univision several times. She also holds the honor of being named “Distinguished Artist” by the city of Miami in 1988.

The exhibition opening coincides with the events surrounding Downtown Miami First Friday Art Walk. Free parking available onsite. Conveniently located across the street from the College North Metromover station. The event is free and open to the public. @artisanlounge
