ART OF CHAIRS EXHIBIT AT CANDO ARTS CO-OP


Ironically last week when I decided to update Photos for Friday to Chair Fetish Friday, I found a feature in Sunday's paper called Art Of Chair on exhibit in South Beach. Jeff and I went to see the exhibit yesterday, and we also got to meet one of the resident artists - Alissa Christine. Alissa is a very talented photographer, who is so inspired by Miami, she has initiated a project she is developing into a book - both called "i love miami 365".

We toured the 5,000 sq. ft. space, and saw not only the ten featured recycled chairs converted into art, but art from the other residents (sculptors, painters, mixed-media and photographers) who share as curator for this gallery like Janet M. Mueller, Paula Turk, Shari McWilliams, Deborah Weed and Sid Daniels...












Some other pieces captured in
this resident gallery feature:

sculpture

photo collage

paintings

mixed media of recycled product

And although this wasn't one of the chairs featured,
it was inside one of the studios,
and I was really drawn to its
style, lines and aged look...



If you are in Miami Beach,
stop by CANDO to check out
