Best works from local galleries under one roof at Gables Museum
The Coral Gables Museum recently opened a first-of-its-kind exhibition featuring the best works from 11 local galleries.
Titled “New Art for the New Year,” the exhibition debuted with an opening reception attended by some 350 guests on Wednesday evening, Jan. 30. The collection is on view one week only, through Thursday, Feb. 7, at the museum, 285 Aragon Ave.
The show was curated by art veteran and appraiser Denise Gerson, former associate director of the University of Miami’s Lowe Art Museum.
“I was thrilled to be invited to work on this exhibition,” said Ms. Gerson, who joined gallery owners, artists and other art lovers at the opening reception. “Art is for everyone, and the Coral Gables’ art scene has set itself apart by enduring the test of time, and by offering local and international enthusiasts an unparalleled level of exciting new artwork, knowledge, and experience.”
