Wynwood Art Walk Guide: June's Hottest Shows

Categories: Art, Culture

There was a time when the June rainy season would put a damper on the 305's arts programming. But those days are long gone. Most local galleries now welcome the summer dog days as a perfect time to pick up some steam rather than winding down for vacation.

That's the case for the Design District's Swampspace which is known for embracing all things moist and clammy as part of its edgy monthly offerings the past half decade. The gallery was recently named one of this year's Knights Arts finalists.

That's not the only big news oozing from the Swamp's muggy environs. Oliver Sanchez, who owns and operates the alternative program, is launching a deluxe new location near Locust Projects during this month's Second Saturday crawl.

Then, there's a pair of widely contrasting photo offerings at Wynwood's Dina Mitrani and Artmedia galleries, showcasing a crop of fresh South Florida shutterbugs, all beginning at 6 p.m. this weekend. Here are our top picks for what's shaping into a sultry June Art Walk.

Oliver Sanchez is popping the champagne cork on his latest venture with a sultry group show featuring works by some of the Magic City's hottest talent, including Gary Fonseca, Jeffery Noble, Jason Hedges, Johnny Laderer, Diego Guzman, Gustavo Oviedo, Jose Felix Perez, Mario M. Gonzalez, and Emmett Moore. Sanchez explains that the show's title stems from a phrase that "refers to the act of retrieving debris from shorelines which has been left behind by high tides." Expect the enigmatic collection of works on display to convey notions of how the environment deeply influences the subconscious ideas of people as a result of their surroundings.

Swampspace, 3940 N. Miami Avenue, Miami. Call 305-710-8631 or visit swampspace.blogspot.com.

This seamless group offering at Dina Mitrani was curated by Jesus Petroccini and Julian Pardo, founders of Foto 33, an e-magazine about the photographic medium. The duo organized the show to spotlight local talent whose works reflect a complex relationship with their surroundings. The exhibit explores the Magic City's reputation as a hedonistic party destination contrasted against its rising role as a global center for artistic production. "Holistic and enlightening, decadent and indulgent, such a shift towards the internal leads to discovery," say the organizers, who add that the exhibit is "about the artists and the work they make within the backdrop of their own environment."
