Dan Bondroff, Romero Britto, Pablo Cano, Meme Ferre, Gina Hubler, Fred Hunt, Lebo, Nancy Martini, Sylvia Modica, Ed King, Erika King, George Rodez, Andrea Ruggieri and Eileen Seitz among others.“Cincinnati has pigs, Chicago has cows, Miami Beach has flamingos, and we have peacocks,” says Heather Bettner, Councilwoman and longtime resident of Coconut Grove. “Loved by some, distained by others, the peacock has become the Grove’s unofficial mascot and an integral symbol of this community.”Each peacock is sponsored by local businesses and individuals and decorated by local artists who incorporated their own themes representative of the culture. A “who’s who” of artists has been commissioned so far including renowned pop artists Romero Brito and Ed King, marionette pioneer Pablo Cano, sculptor Paula Turk, post modern cartoonist, LEBO and collage artist Erika King. Doreen LoCiero, a celebrated local artist, is the Artistic Director of the exhibit.

After the launching this coming Saturday, the life-size fiberglass peacocks statues 6 feet tall and weighing over 100 pounds, will be placed at varied spots throughout Coconut Grove. A self-guided tour brochure will be available that will allow folks to leisurely stroll the village seeking the colorfully decorated birds as well as discover all the hidden pleasures the Grove has to offer.

Carlos Garcia. Emma Pineiro. Pérez Celis and Daniela Viotti.
Summer Show: Artists from Montana Collection
About Emma Pineiro recent works:
In Terra Firme, serene horizontal bands intercepted by abrupt dips and dubious perches find themselves in a progressively fragmented landscape, as Pineiro’s representational abstraction raises salient questions pertaining to the national ethos, a collective memory and the sacred mysticism of the Pampas. Terra Firma’s intimist topographies --layered in rich colors, applied freely to create contrasting patterns, depth and perspective-- have an inspired allure. Pineiro reveals a broken peace at the core of our existence --an ecological shift.Pineiro -- whose work reflects the influence of Masters with whom she studied including Eugenio Daneri, Krishna Reddy, Bob Blackburn, Tony Smith and William S Hayter – has been exhibited and collected by cultural institutions worldwide.

Manuel Carbonell. Modern Master Sculptor
An important collection of maquettes, sculptures, bas-reliefs and monumental sculptures by Cuban Master SculptorManuel Carbonell. His commissioned work as the creator of two of Miami’s most important landmarks, “The Tequesta Family” at the Brickell Avenue Bridge and “El Centinela del Rio” at the entrance of the Miami River in Brickell Key, denotes his more classical and figurative style. The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work.We invite you to visit our gallery to see an important collection of the works of Carbonell ranging from maquettes to monumentals and the paintings and sculptures of Mauro Arbiza.

Carlos Cruz Diez: The Embodied Experience of Color
Curated by MAM Adjunct Curator Rina CarvajalThis exhibition marks the artist's first exhibition to focus solely on sensory chromatic environments and interactive projects. It presents four, interactive environments that challenge visitors’ perceptions as they experience shifting chromatic space and color in movement.Internationally known as a leading practitioner of kinetic art in the 1950s, Carlos Cruz-Diez began experimenting with color, perception and sensation during the 1960s and 1970s. His pioneering work from those decades proposed a dematerialization of the art object in favor of immersive environments incorporating the viewer's body, senses and subjectivity, and changing the audience from passive spectators into active participants.

Volf Roitman, Sunflower 1, 1999, Laser-cut metal, 60 x 60 x 18 in.

Until August 29
Volf Roitman: From MADI to The Ludic RevolutionThis is a series of major works celebrating the 60-year-long career of Uruguayan painter, sculptor, architect, novelist, playwright, filmmaker, and humorist Volf Roitman. Samples of Roitman's work from the '50s to the present will be on view, including a splendid array of motorized, kinetic works of a humorous style. The exhibition will celebrate the Ludic, or playfulness and whimsical, which is the basis of his creations. His newest innovations include giant MADI banners and MADI lightboxes. Some say the letters MADI stand for Movimiento Artistico De Invencion or MAterialismo DIalectismo (Dialectical Materialism). The movement integrates complexity with playfulness by focusing on geometric shapes that spill out of the traditional frame, and articulated mobile structures. This exhibition is sponsored in part by Citizens Interested in Arts, Inc.Paul Strand in Mexico
These photographs provide a visual record of Paul Strand's journey through Mexico from 1932-34 and his brief return visit in 1966. Today recognized as one of the great photographers of the twentieth century, Strand believed firmly in the power of art and social documentary. Tap-Tap: Celebrating the Art of Haiti This exhibition is part of a larger project to contribute works lost in the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti and assist in the rebuilding of the island's cultural and artistic heritage.
