Oh Nancy. From Jun 13th through Aug 1st, 2009.

Gallery DietGallery Diet is presenting Home Coming Stories, an exhibition curated by Brian Burkhardt and organized by Oh Nancy, an arts organization founded by Nate Wellman and Fionn McCabe.

Oh Nancy is a vehicle for artists that provides them with a pre-existing narrative structure into which they can fit their work. By having a constantly open submission process Nate Wellman and Fionn McCabe become instigators of a larger phenomena which has grown to include jewelry makers, photographers, sculptors, conceptual artists, and various other kinds of contemporary thinkers and object makers. The narrative, which includes a classic heroine and battling forces of good and evil is manifested through traditional American characters such as football players, monsters, and blonde damsels in distress. The exhibition at Gallery Diet brings together all of these media, and the work of over thirty artists.

From Apr 11th through May 2nd, 2009. Gallery Diet
Sonya Blesofsky is a sculptor and installation artist living in Brooklyn, New York. Her work is comprised of predominantly destructible, fragile materials that are warped to re-create various architectural elements. In New Work, Sonya will draw from the gallery’s immediate surroundings. The installation will address the ways in which people and businesses in Wynwood build structures to protect themselves and their possessions. The installation will contain barbed wire atop chain-link fence, window bars and front door gates, a tangle of electrical cables sprouting from a wall, caged and locked light fixtures and air-conditioning units, cinderblocks, and wooden palettes.  Each element of this ghostly installation will be life-size, and made entirely of paper, glue and tape.  (more…)

Open now in Wynwood.

Gallery Diet. Miami Art GalleriesLocated at 174 NW 23rd Street, Gallery Diet will promote visual carb-counting by keeping its artist roster small. According to gallerist Nina Johnson, Gallery Diet’s mission is to curb visual gluttony. "Everything in pop culture has become so image-driven,” she says. “The people showing up to art exhibits are so much more desensitized than they used to be, so creating a diet of what we experience becomes very important".
