Solo Art Miami: A new Art Fair to debut this November

From Nov 19th through 21st, 2010.

altA new art fair showcasing the works of individual artists will join an elite list of visual art exhibitions held in South Florida during the fall. The inaugural SOLO Art Miami Art Fair, presented by Medica HealthCare Plans, will run three-days November 19th through 21st at the renovated Miami Airport Convention Center, formerly the Double Tree Miami/Airport Hotel and Exhibition Center. 

More than 75 artists in such categories as claywork, digital art, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking and drawing, sculpture and metalwork, watercolor and wood are expected to exhibit in this juried show.

“SOLO Art Miami is the perfect venue for the independent artist to exhibit,” said Gilda Sacasas, executive director of SOLO Art Miami and herself a noted local contemporary artist. “This fair fills a void for independent artists to promote their work, and we expect to see a wealth of new talent on display. SOLO Art Miami will also welcome the area’s most prestigious art galleries.”

The deadline for artists to apply is July 15th.  Entries will be juried by a five-member panel of professionals knowledgeable in each category. 

SOLO Art Miami will offer the ambiance of a café complete with a seating area, a VIP lounge and additional services for those who attend. The two-day art fair is expected to attract more than 10,000 people. SOLO Art Miami, presented by Medica HealthCare Plans, is being organized by SOLO Art Group, LLC. Gilda Sacasas, the group’s executive director, was one of the founders of Carnaval on the Mile, a three-day event with 100 participating artists and an attendance of an estimated 200,000.
