I was amazed by the art showcased at the 2600 building. The show was organized by, Alejandro Rivera - Concierge. There were various styles on display and even artists from Brazil and France. I enjoyed the flow of the large lobby and joined the residents while they gazed at the artwork. The high ceilings and incredible views created a perfect venue to feature paintings.
The paintings pictured to the left are by Sid Daniels, a artist located in South Beach. He describes his style as "Latin Deco"and gets inspiration from a mix of Latin culture and big band music. He certainly captures a flavor that fills the streets of South Beach.
His work was dramatically arranged near a large window and the sunlight made each piece pop with excitement. There were several large paintings and many of the guests enjoyed looking at the work of Sid Daniels. You can see more of his work at http://www.siddaniels.com/
Carmen Gusmao is a Brazilian artist that presented a few outstanding paintings. Her work demands attention and draws people in to take a closer look. When I walked up to the canvas I noticed detailed drawings. She explained that inside each painting is a story. She draws her inspirations from authors such as Dostoevsky and Kafka. Carmen is pictured below alongside her painting "The Adventures of a Naughty Girl."
In addition to the aforementioned artists, Marguerite Duthoit-Defrance's work captivated guests. She is originally from France and is currently a seasonal Williams Island resident. It's really incredible how many talented people live in the City of Aventura. Marguerite is definatly one of those special Aventura residents. She's pictured here on the right next to one of her signature flower paintings. Also in the photo is 2600 Property Manager alongside Concierge, Alejandro Riveria.
I took a few moments to speak with Marguerite and while we were talking several people walked by to admire the painting in the photo below. I have to agree, this piece was extraordinary. I highly reccomend taking a look at her work online.
This show was a great success and enjoyed by all who visited the 2600 lobby.
