Ah, autumn. There's no indication of it yet in the weather, but 'tis the season to be viewing new art. Here's what we'll be making a priority at the Second Saturday Art Walk in Wynwood and at Art + Design Night in the Design District.
"The Machine in the Ghost" by Paul Pfeiffer, 7-10 p.m.
World Class Boxing, 170 NW 23rd St.
Check out our write-up by Carlos Suarez de Jesus, but if it's at W.C.B., you know it's going to be good. Paul Pfeiffer's videos are essential viewing.
"Everyday Travails" by Adler Guerrier, 7-10 p.m.
David Castillo, 2234 NW 2nd Ave.
One of a select few hometown artists to be featured in the Whitney Bienniel, Guerrier never disappoints.
"Fieldwork" by Richard Höglund, 7-10 p.m.
Gallery Diet, 174 NW 23rd St.
Amazingly intricate large- and medium-scale drawings, some of which are based on mapping Spinoza's Ethics.
"Cutting Edge Framing", 6-9 p.m.
Cutting Edge Framing, 11 NE 39th St.
We're really looking forward to this D.I.Y. exhibition from some of our favorite locals. (See our post from Wednesday). Also, don't miss the afterparty at Terri and Donna's.
"Native Intelligence" by Aimee Lee
Diaspora Vibe, 3938 North Miami Ave.
The opening for this show was actually Thursday, but most people probably waited until Art + Design Night anyway. This show feature's large-scale installations that are impressive upon first viewing but also reward extended staring.
"New Work" by Jenny Brillhart; "Recorded Eyesight" by John Sanchez, and "Venting" by Richard Heden, 7-10 p.m.
Dorsch Gallery, 151 NW 24th St
All three artists are worth checking out, but we're particularly excited by Brillhart, a recent transplant to the Miami scene.
