If you live in Dade County, you’ve seen the tags everywhere: a blocked stencil, a starred sticker, a dashed black marker or a swift spray of paint. AHOL. SNIFFS. GLUE. But signing his nom de guerre to the city he loves is only a part of what this Miami born and bred visualist does in the wild world. The rest, as they say, is suitable for framingBut there’s no frame in all of art land that can contain the vivid multitudes of the man known as Ahol Sniffs Glue. Hell, not even whole walls can contain what’s inside this cat.

Until April 3rd.
Magdalena Atria. Monstrous Moonshine
Magdalena Atria’s first solo exhibition in Miami presents us with a well-balanced display of her most recent works. Living and working in Santiago de Chile, Atria has developed a significant local and international career, with multiple solo exhibitions and participation in important international exhibitions at venues such as The Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCA (Los Angeles), The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art (Austin), Bienal de Mercosul (Porto Alegre, Brasil), among others.Atria’s work connects with the modernist tradition of geometric abstraction, but with the express intent to relate it to specific visual situations encountered in the world. Abstraction within the modernist tradition searched for the absolute, for a disembodied realm of pure relations and correspondences, while Atria’s interest focuses not on the possibility of approaching pure relations but rather on its impossibility.

The main piece, which gives its name to the show, is a large scale painting made with plasticine (non-hardening modeling clay) directly attached to the wall of the gallery. Plasticine, a kind of modeling clay commonly used by children at a very young age for making small figures or similar crafts, is a material Atria has been working with for some time now, creating paintings with intricate surfaces composed of highly detailed and precise abstract images.

Mario Algaze, El Beso

Until April 24
Mario Algaze. Recent Dreams
Recent Dreams by Mario Algaze, are black and white panoramic landscapes of Latin America. These photographs, primarily of Peru, Costa Rica and Colombia were taken with a hand-made Linhof camera and are selenium toned silver gelatin prints.Now, at the height of his career, Algaze's 152-page monograph titled Portfolio will be presented at the opening of this exhibition. After 40 years as a self taught photographer and having been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, Algaze is pleased to be showing these landscapes in Miami where they have never been shown before. Algaze was born in Cuba, but has called Miami home since 1960; his photographs of Latin America are a way for him to reconcile his exile from his native homeland. His images of Spanish speaking places evoke emotion and mystery through his use of light. The streets, bars, café’s and cathedrals are dreamlike and nostalgic, yet documentary in their depiction of daily life.

Until April 17
Main Gallery: Carolina Sardi & Ted LarsenProject Room: The Merger
Artists Carolina Sardi and Ted Larsen base their visual idiom on minimalist beliefs. Their works engage in a discourse that transcends aesthetic elements and explores the fundamental nature of their worlds.Carolina Sardi’s installations are poetic equations. Her latest series delicately trace celestial paths. Her new works are made of single pieces rather than individually installed shapes; they possess the speed, and sleek mobility of shooting stars.

Ted Larsen began working with salvaged metal in 2000. His latest series explores the importance of the individual as a component of the “whole”. Larsen’s sculptures transcend aesthetic beauty, allowing each viewer to assign them a place in their world.

The Merger, a collaborative venture by Cuban artists Mario Miguel Gonzalez, Niels Moleiro Luis, and Alain Pino recreate ubiquitous and mundane objects on a grand scale, presenting palatable socio-political metaphors.

Scott Scheidly. Paintings
“Ohio Born. At age four I attempted my first art project by devouring a 10 pack of crayons thus turning my diaper into a Jackson Pollack. At age six I was introduced to the sweet nectar of school paste. At around this same time period I began producing turkey drawings by tracing my hand. At age seven I lost my thumb in an unfortunate Big Wheel accident ending my successful "Hand Turkey Period". At age ten I ate more paste, however at age eleven I switched to water based paints & modeling clay.Between age twelve to sixteen I was in a daze from the paints I had eaten which I found out to be oil based. I did not produce much art during this time which we will call the "Your Sons Not Quit Right Period". At age seventeen I had kicked my habits and refined my skills and began to earn money with art for the first time by doing fellow students art projects for lunch money.

At age twenty I apparently graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and moved to Florida unbeknownst to me. I still live in Florida where I enjoy floundering about and painting pretty pictures, and I still eat paste now and again just to remind myself of my roots and how I ended up like this. Some day I hope not to be famous.” SS

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Until April 6
Ivelisse Jimenez. Blind Enough to See
Painting becomes a point of departure to construct pieces dealing with simultaneity and contradiction. The manner in which objects, images and materials are articulated questions hierarchies of what is most present. Structures are made of diverse elements partially covered by a veil that prevents frontal access. Images constantly shift between integration and disintegration.
Daniel Gonzalez. Pimp Art History
A maquillage of concepts takes shape through historic practices of handicraft.
Sewn sequins and images enriched with style by adding rhinestones and bijoux, are glam representations of intense moments and desires where classic and contemporary live together in groomed, adorned and embellished artwork.
