“From the Block to the Canvas” by David German (Palm Beach County)   Mixed Medium  47.5”x72”

 

 

“My profound connection to music and the pulse of hip hop culture infuses every brush stroke and line I create. This synergy has propelled me to explore the intricate relationship between music and visual art through my project, Concept Rhythm. In it, I apply the principles of design and the discerning eye of an art critic to music, revealing the profound synchrony between these two seemingly disparate worlds.”  David German

 

MUSE is the only fair dedicated to Black, Multi-Cultural, and Women artists in Miami Beach during Miami Art Week & Art Basel weekend one of the top international art events in the world.

 

 

 

 

 

“Watershed” by Jane Lawton Baldridge (Martin County)  Acrylic Painting  49” x 34”

 

 

“My paintings are stories about my life on the water. Perfect days spent scudding along on the wavelets that reflect diamonds or bashing headlong into waves trying to survive the storm. I am grateful to have an unusual history of waterborne adventures. I want to share my stories and experiences with the audience in hopes of heightening their awareness of its importance, beauty and fragility.”

 

 

Thirty-four artists from Duval, Brevard, Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade Counties are represented in the NMSAF Exhibit.

 

Baseball Raydio Dynamic  Sculpture Restomod by Raymond Fernandez (Dade County) 50” tall, 18” wide, 12”

 

“I see my work as away to unite the past with the present by melting vintage and modern with unmistakable artistic flair. My goal is to spark a sense of history in others, uniting us all through time with an unforgettable multi-sensory experience.” Raymond Fernandez

 

 

This MUSE exhibit features an eclectic mix of paintings, photographs and sculptures from Black, Hispanic, Caribbean, and African artists residing throughout the US and abroad.

 

“Beach Slayer” by Matthew Yeandle ( Palm Beach County) Photograph Printed on Metal Size: 36″x36″

 

 

“My creative foundation developed as a multimedia artist and my experience over the years in the fashion and beauty industry has manifested itself in my present works of photographic art. My goal is to create images that resonate with current modern sensibilities. I am inspired by putting a fresh face on even older iconic subjects. Beauty draws me with a single hair.”
