Alejandra Von Hartz at Wynwood Gallery Night

By Alexandra Figueredo
Gallery Night every second Saturday of the month is the perfect opportunity to explore contemporary art in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Enjoy a glass of wine and hors d’eouvres while strolling through dozens of local galleries and collections, including Alejandra von Hartz Gallery owned by Key Biscayne resident Alejandra von Hartz.
Alejandra von Hartz Gallery represents both US and international artists ranging from established pioneers of modern art in the 1950’s to emerging artists.  The focus is on Latin American contemporary art with an emphasis on Geometric Abstraction, Minimalism and Conceptual Art.
Opened in 2002, the Gallery serves as a platform to promote Latin American art on a global level. It has also participated in art fairs locally and worldwide, including Art Basel Miami Beach held in December 2010.
Upcoming events at the Gallery include exhibit entitled “Working Premises” by Martin Pelenur, a Uruguayan artist known for Geometric Abstraction, through April 2, 2011; and exhibit by Argentinean artist Teresa Pereda with conceptual art works, photography and video, from April 9 – June 4, 2011.
Regular Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday from 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday from 12 - 5 pm. Gallery Night is every second Saturday from 7 – 10 pm. For more information on the Gallery, visit www.AlejandravonHartz.net.
