Miami, FL – Saturday, December 9th, 2017: Thousands of art enthusiasts attended the second full day of Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami to discover more than 75 modern and contemporary galleries from the Florida region and around the globe, representing over 500 leading contemporary artists from primary and secondary markets, within the walls of the only three shows under one roof.

On Friday evening, local Miami producer and fashion curator, Celia Evans of Planet Fashion TV, put on a stunning presentation at Red Dot Miami entitled ‘Art After Dark’ that showcased art-inspired fashion through the ages. The invitation-only VIP event featured models on top of especially created boxes, transformed with designs from various labels from the seventies, eighties, nineties and today. DJ entertainment and live music were enjoyed by a crowd of hundreds who gathered around the main entertainment area to catch a glimpse of models wearing retro designs and t-shirts with bold fashion statements.

Today’s third complete day of programming invites attendees to meet the acclaimed abstract artist from Guatemala, Sergio “Valenz” Valenzuela – a contemporary artist who tells stories with everyday objects, primarily expressing them with graphite and acrylic on canvas. His medium to large abstract artworks prominently feature elements such as chairs, ladders, and beds. These recognizable structures serve as a way for the artist to signify the opportunities, growth and dreams we all carry as individuals. Valenz’ wall art has been featured in over eighty group shows and thirty solo exhibitions in South America and around the world. Among numerous recognitions and awards he was selected as the winner of the “Young Artist” award in 2005, and granted a scholarship to study at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts, Valen.

Programming highlights for Saturday, December 9th at Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami, include the following.

RED DOT MIAMI 3:00 p.m. MEET THE ARTIST: VALENZArte Collective, Booth R205, R305 By using elements such as chairs, ladders, beds, monocycles, trapeze artists, swings, and machines, Valenz tells stories about life. The chairs signify, according to the context, opportunities and the patience required for them to step into our lives. The ladders represent our desire to climb, to continue our personal growth. Beds represent periods when we sleep and dream, things we cannot share with anyone else. Playful characters are representative of the uniqueness and singularity of each of the moments that we experience throughout our lifetimes and the game that life is. Come meet Valenz, and share some of the game with him.

In this way, he feels his art accomplishes its mission. For Nasrin Sheykhi, her works do not fall into just one category. Painting, caricature, illustration—each work beckons the viewer to come closer to catch the references to architecture, music, cinema, literature, calligraphy, physics, psychology. The pieces are alive with movement and hidden meanings. Come meet these innovative artists and see what influence their art makes upon you.

7:00 p.m. MEET THE ARTIST: MARIELLE PLAISIRContemporary Art Projects USA, Booth R215Upon first glance, you see the depth of the narrative in each of Marielle Plaisir’s exquisite tapestries and unique paintings. Meet Plaisir and hear her story, her influences, and inspirations. The essence of her artworks is theatrical—and we are drawn into the story and drama of each one. As a French-Caribbean artist, she blends life and fiction into her use of textiles, fibers, and fabrics and brings social commentary to each piece. Her surrealist approach allows her to move from the reality of life to the capacity of imagination.
