SPECTRUM MIAMI 2018 OPENING NIGHT PREVIEW RECAP
Mana Wynwood was buzzing with excitement last night as we welcomed thousands of collectors, gallery owners, art dealers, and cultural connoisseurs to the Spectrum Miami Opening Night Preview!
To commemorate the opening of the show, Cervera CEO Veronica Cervera Goeseke and Managing Partner Alicia Cervera Lamadrid as well Co-founder of Artblend Michal Joseph joined Redwood Media Group CEO Eric Smith for the prestigious ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the show’s eighth year in Miami.
Attendees sipped on wine and snacked on canapés as they wandered through aisles of whimsical sculpture work, contemporary paintings, landscape photography, and colorfully crafted glassworks.Fan favorites included Jeffrey Bisaillon, a self-taught artist who creates what he calls “uber-contemporary” pieces, and contemporary American sculptor Eric Shupe. Art lovers were also blown away by work of our Spotlight Program exhibitors as well as James Patterson, Marianne Enhorning, Souren Mousavi, Eleazar, and Jennifer Ardolino, who all gave live demonstrations of how they create their works.
If you did not make it down, do not worry! With over 100 exhibitors and thousands of works, there’s still plenty of time to get your hands on that perfect piece.
