Yesterday's Art Walk at the Williams Island condos lived up to all expectations of luxury, art, design, and class. I attended the show in each condo on Williams Island and spoke with the various artists, each was thrilled to be showing their work at Williams Island. I will share my thoughts on the show and a few pictures I took in each building.

My first visit was the lobby of the Williams Island 2000 building located at 2000 Island Blvd. I arrived early and made it just in time to witness the unveiling of David Schor's sailing masterpiece. It was clear that this would be a special event and a successful show organized by Luisa Chu, concierge of Williams Island 2000. In the 2000 condo lobby, David Schor presented along with various artists represented by Fine Artgasm Gallery.

The residents of Williams Island circulated the lobby of the 2000 building at a slow pace, paying attention to each piece of art on display. Many were thinking about how the art would look displayed in their apartment condos. It was obvious that the guests were well seasoned art buyers and recognized the quality. They asked questions, spoke with the artists, took pictures, drank wine, and enjoyed food from Charley's Crab Ft. Lauderdale.

The hand blown glass by artist Drew Cobb was popular and well received by the residents. Fine Artgasm Gallery was responsible for presenting the work of Drew Cobb. Each piece of glass work was strategically placed around the lobby in order to catch the natural light and the eyes of the lobby guests.

Here's a photo of one of Drew Cobb's pieces that caught my eye. I'm sure you'll agree it's beautiful.

In addition, to the art and placement of Cobb's glass. The other pieces of art were displayed in this unique venue using every empty space. A painting by the artist Emo is seen in the photo below displayed on the couch.

Here's another photo showing the amazing pieces of art brought by Fine Artgasm Gallery.

The center area of the lobby, the grand entrance, was the sight of David Schor's art masterpieces.

I suggest that you click on the links in the post to learn more about the artists at Williams Island 2000. The show was a huge success and each resident I spoke with thought the layout and art in the 2000 building was first rate. This was an important event for the City of Aventura - a statement that our residents demand and appreciate cultural events. It takes some planning to make it happen, but well worth the work. Events like this will help carve Aventura Florida's spot in the art world.

The next few posts will showcase the other art shows that took place in the various buildings on the Island.
