Italian Artists Featured at Miami’s Home Design and Remodeling Show, Miami Beach

Feb 10, 2015 2006

Two prominent Italian artists now living in South Florida will be exhibiting their art as part of this year's Home Design and Remodeling Show to be held from March 27-30, 2015 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. At Home with Art – Spotlight on Miami's Art Districts will be a showcase of 21+ established artists working in one of Miami's vibrant art districts.

"This is not your average art exhibit or fair," comments Sharon Berube, spokesperson for the Home Design and Remodeling Show. "We are building a bridge between the collector and the artist. Choosing the perfect work of art for the home or office begins with a connection to the artist. Visit the artist's studio, get to know him/her, and gain an understanding of the art you choose. In a big way, we are saying: Great art can be found close to home, all year long!"

Emanuele Viscuso is from Palermo, Italy and graduated in Law from the Federico Secondo University in Naples, Italy. Mr. Viscuso is a sculptor, a musician, a designer, cultural promoter, and founder of the Sicilian Film Festival in Miami Beach. His sculptures speak of movement and rhythm, harmony and therefore, music. His most famous piece is the 45-foot-large sculpture "Wave-bridge on the imaginary" located at the Milan Malpensa Internationa Airport. He works from an independent studio at his Miami Beach home.

Paolo Ambu received his formal training in Fine Arts & Architecture at the Liceo Artistico both in his hometown Cagliari and Milan. He has travelled extensively, lived and exhibited in faraway places including England, Indonesia and Australia. Apart from his work as an artist, Mr. Ambu has had a kaleidoscope of professional experiences encompassing different disciplines such as theater, fashion and interior design. Today, he owns the Babalῡ boutiques in Miami Beach and Palm Beach.

Each of Miami's art districts will occupy a separate booth, but be grouped together to make a large exhibition area. Visitors can explore 7 curated district exhibits: North Miami by artists from The Fountainhead Studios - Paolo Ambu, Marco Beria, and Carla Fache; Wynwood Art District –Sandra Garcia-Pardo (ArtLink Gallery), David Gary Lloyd, and Tina Salvesen (Bakehouse Art Complex); Miami Beach – Emanuele Viscuso; Miami Downtown Arts District (MDAD) – Benedicte Blanc-Fontenille (McCormick Place); Adriana Carvalho (Artisan Lounge); Rafael Consuegra (MDAD), Cesar Rey (Aluna Art Foundation) and curated by David Zalben (Pink Bastard); Little Havana/Viernes Culturales - Agustin Gainza, Santos Mendez and Katey Penner (Futurama); Bird Road Art District - Jane Harris, Sandy Levy, MANO, Miguel Rodez, and Gabriel Saldivia (White's Art Gallery); and South Miami – Klara Chavarria of Coral Gables, and Gerry Stecca, resident artist at Deering Estate.
