Etra Fine Art in Miami’s Design District Announces November and December, 2012 Exhibit Openings


As art fair season takes hold of Miami, Etra Fine Art in the Design District announces a strong opener highlighting the 20 year career of internationally acclaimed Colombian artist Mario Velez.  Velez is a minimalist artist who has been greatly inspired by the Bauhaus approach to design. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. as part of Art+Design Night/2nd Saturday Gallery Walk in Miami’s Design District.

Then, as part of Art Basel 2012 and Miami Art Week, the gallery will present a “Winter Group Show” exhibiting the works of: Mario Velez (Colombia), Rainer Lagemann (US), Christian Awe (Berlin), Hunt Slonem (US), and Douglass Freed (US).  The Opening Reception takes place on Saturday, December 8, 2012 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. and the exhibit runs through January 11, 2013.  Both events are free.

“The Mario Velez Retrospective will be a great tribute to his career,” comments Stefano Campanini, owner of Etra Fine Art.  “And, as part of the Miami art fair season, we want to attract a wide and chosen audience.  A group show characterizes our evolving and dynamic city.”

After nearly two decades in Soho, New York, owners Stefano Campanini and Alicia Restrepo relocated to Miami in 2004 to open Etra Fine Art in the Design District.  The gallery has a reputation for featuring avant-garde collections by well-established contemporary artists and a permanent collection of works by internationally renowned artists.
