"The Zoo" Brings Collective Creativity to North Miami, a Preview to Upcoming Art Basel Season
The Zoo – a new 5000 square foot gallery in North Miami’s Art District will preview the work of ten eclectic and progressive artists including Jay Lonewolf, Druso Blume, David Santana, Francisco Acosta, Theresa Calluori, Jose Hurtado, Amarillis Veliz and Albert “Levon” Sanchez and Cindy Cortes.
“This is a showcase to preview the voice of the streets for art scouts, buyers and art aficionados,” Lonewolf said. Highlights include Jay Lonewolf’s “Awakening in the Abyss,” Druso Blume’s primitive symbolic paintings, David Santana’s realism works and Theresa Calluori’s erotic sculptural “The Weapons of Mass Distraction.” Also featured are Francisco Acosta’s photojournalist essays, Albert “Levon” Sanchez’s Goth & Candy Girl photo series, Amarillis Veliz’s haunting and playful paintings, Jose Hurtado’s conceptual metal sculptures and introducing Cindy Cortes’s whimsical works.
The new exhibit premieres Friday, Nov 28-29, 2008 and kicks off at 6pm–10pm. The exhibit continues Dec 5-6. The premiere coincides with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) monthly jazz night, offering some of the city's finest art and music with free live jazz.
