FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
11/16/2011 -- In celebration of Art Basel, Las Tias will present
BLEND, a site-specific multi-media exhibition conceived and executed
by a group of talented and innovative local Miami artists. BLEND will
combine a seamless mix of various elements where all constituent parts
are to be indistinguishable from one another, portrayed in the form of
live performances, poetry, sculptures, and video installations. BLEND
will establish a dynamic dialogue engaging every viewer.
“Blending is a form of disguise; at times someone does not realize all
the little things that are parts to a whole because in reality
everything is blended” said Natasha Velez, the driving force behind
this exhibition. The collaborating artists are Natasha Velez, Brooke Baumgartner, German Caceres, Kayla Delacerda, Denise Gorrio, Brittney Leighton, James Quinaz, Joshua Veasey and Rafael Carrillo.
This unique collaboration will be presented in the display windows and
showroom of Las Tias, a consignment store located in the Wynwood Arts
District at 2834 North Miami Avenue, Miami, Fl 33127.
Esther Percal and Anne Samuel, owners of the shop, say “Art Basel
provides the perfect moment for our very talented community of local
artists to shine, and show the Art World the talent our city is
cultivating. We at Las Tias are honored to provide these artists a
voice and visibility."
The opening reception for the exhibit and performance will take place
Tuesday, Nov. 29th, 7 PM to 9 PM. A reception and performance will
again take place Saturday, Dec. 3rd, 7 PM to 9 PM. Las Tias will be
open to the public Wednesday Nov. 30 through Friday Dec. 2nd from 10
AM to 8 PM, Saturday Dec. 3rd from 10 AM to 9 PM and Sunday Dec. 4th
from 12 PM to 3 PM during Art Basel. No entry fee is required.
Working in collaboration with these students, Las Tias is a resale
