Miami, FL, July 02, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- It’s not just about Wynwood Art Walk anymore, it’s about the Bird Road Art District, igniting over 30 art galleries and growing every month.
It’s not about the who’s who, but about the “who”. Meet Chris Riggs. He’s an artist who paints with geometric shapes and vivid colors, acrylic and spray paint on canvas, and has a mindset for making a wall come alive. On July 21st, Chris Riggs’ latest show is going to appear at Ave 74 – A Miami Art Gallery, located at 4432 SW 74 Avenue, Miami, Fl 33155
“My latest show has been in the works for a year. I’m introducing to the art world some of the most unique pieces I have ever painted,” Riggs says.
Chris Riggs latest show is called “A Journey Through Shapes and Colors.” This show will be part of the Bird Road Art District gallery night, which takes place every third Saturday of the Month. The area was originally an industrial area of warehouses which over the last few years is being occupied by many artist studios. It has been officially declared an art district by Miami Dade County since the year 2000. This month's art walk will have over over 30 art galleries featuring some of Miami’s most talked about resident artist. Guest can view the behind the scenes areas into many of the working art studios.
Ave 74 – A Miami Art Gallery, will be hosting the Chris Riggs solo show. “We are the latest gallery to move into the Bird Road Art District,” says 14 year frame shop owner, Adam Brand of Frames USA & Art Gallery. In a short amount of time, this new addition to the art district has attracted hundreds of new art lovers to the area with its May and June exhibits.
“After seeing so many art galleries doing the same thing over and over again, I wanted to introduce an art gallery that will always have the hands-on touch with the artist present. For this month’s expo, walking into my gallery will give people a sense of taking a blank canvas and turning it into a message that will make our visitors say, ‘I need this in my life,’” Brand says. “We will also donate part of the sales from the July 21st event to Camillus House.”
Chris Riggs public debut is on Saturday, July 21st from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm, a second viewing will be held on Friday July 27th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm and on Saturday, July 28th, from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The gallery address is 4432 SW 74 Avenue, Miami, Fl 33155.
