Historically South Florida has been cast as a destination for relaxation, vistas of the Ocean, and subtropical climate. This perception has been built-on over time, arguably since its European encounter of the sixteenth century. Most academic portrayals of the Sunshine State, historical or otherwise, have attempted to assess, analyze and exploit the powerful perception this view summons along side the atypical society, economy, and culture that is subsequently built on these images. These individuals and their cyclic pattern of seasonal migration are often referred to as Snowbirds.

 
South Florida has of course advanced beyond these traits into the Subtropical Cosmopolitan area we know today. But, from such basic desires the Snowbird lifestyle has continued to exist in Europe and North America for many centuries and even finds its way today into our current political discourse by way of Mar-a-Lago. Trends emerged and the landscape evolved as the affluent maintained seasonal residences and shifted location and business with the seasons, to benefit themselves of the best time to be at each location.

Some of the most historically influential ideas for Snowbirds such as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison were conceived while staying at their winter homes in South Florida. These subtropical Snowbirds aptly named their time here "the season". 

Works from The Season exhibition at &gallery characterize the landscapes and essences of Florida. Vast scenes and plant life in the Florida setting are the focus of the two dimensional works by Jacqueline Roch and Monique Lazard while Jenna Efrain’s sculptures depicting Florida wildlife comment on the  “harmonious co-existence between our own social structures” and the endangerment of certain species as the population of Florida continues to grow.

&gallery Announces Collaboration with Guest Curator for Summer Exhibition by Annie Berkowitz

&gallery is pleased to present it's next exhibition in collaboration with Miami-based curator Alvaro Miranda Perez. The show, "A Black Ship Moment", is the first of many collaborative endeavors between &gallery and Perez, who is the founder of Black Ship Gallery. 

Black Ship fuses together arts and entertainment in a variety of venues such as galleries, art fairs/conventions, museums, concert halls, and more. Exhibition and public spaces merge with music venues, work habitats and living spaces. 

The multi-sensory program of Black Ship allows for a non-fragmented experience of art and lifestyle, breaking away from the current gallery/museum model and moving towards an integrated immersion of the viewer, where passive audience becomes a participant. 

Black Ship is comprised of a centrifugal group of artists working both independently and collaboratively where art, environment and identity are intrinsically linked. It begins with the intellectual property drawn from visual art, architecture, music, philosophy and the performing arts.

_

&gallery is based on the concept of offering a platform for artists to broadcast their work to collectors near and far. We work directly with artists and curators that have been either trained, established, working or living in Miami.

In this new series of work by Miami-based artist Patricia Schnall Gutierrez, varying themes are conveyed to form the newest exhibition at &gallery: Uninterrupted. 

The artist, who is known for her unfailing use of monochromatic hues, expands her pallet in this new series beyond black and white. According to the artist, her “choice of execution and materials is essential to accentuate the intent of each particular piece.” By way of color and process, Schnall Gutierrez’s works produce continuity between domesticity and the individual focus. The work offers an uninterrupted correlation to the union between means and ends.

The works on view at &gallery comprise of sizable oil-based paintings and some smaller mixed-media pieces on wood panels. On view until April 14th.
