Gary Nader is pleased to present a Fernando Botero Sculpture Exhibit at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood from Feb. 9 through April 9. The exhibit was curated by Nader to showcase the modern master’s significant contributions to the modern and contemporary art world.

 

Fernando Botero was born in Medellin, Colombia in 1932. His signature style portrays people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece. He is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America. In 1960, Botero took up residence in New York and, in the same year, won the Guggenheim National Prize for Colombia.

 

Botero’s work has been featured in several solo and group exhibitions at Gary Nader’s galleries. Botero has exhibited his work at the Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, the Maillol Museum in Paris, the Palazzo Benezia in Rome, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the National Museum in Bogotá, among others. Botero lives and works in Paris, Monte Carlo, Pietrasanta, and New York.

Gary Nader Art Centre is proud to present an exhibition by Brazilian contemporary master Claudio Tozzi. The exhibition “Territorios” will feature Tozzi’s most recent work and will be on view from March 2 through April 2 at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood, located at 62nd NE 27th Street.  Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Claudio Tozzi initiated his career as an artist in the early ‘60s, with the appropriation of objects, images taken from newspapers, comics and photos associated with social issues through symbolic connotations. In the ‘70s, he created a new syntax through the construction of a thread of reticules and chromatic granulations that led to structures and spaces full of intense symbolic meanings. From the ‘80s until his more recent works, he intensified his formal concerns and started to work with basic structural elements such as lines, planes, colors and organic forms and materials that create formal analogies with pre-existing images and enlarge their constructive characteristics. Gary Nader Art Centre is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Tour Bach’s Organ World, July 17-28

Noted organist Lee Ridgway leads this year’s tour to cities and organs with connections to J. S. Bach, as well as other organs of historic importance. The tour is centered around Dresden, Leipzig, and Berlin, with day trips to Naumburg, Halle, Altenburg, Störmthal, Wittenberg, and Tangermünde. Organs include instruments by Silbermann, Scherer, Ladegast, and Sauer. Of particular importance are organs by Hildebrant and Trost which Bach played and knew well.

The tour, of which this is the 5th edition, originated with Quentin and Mary Murrell Faulkner, who had to withdraw for personal reasons. They asked Lee to take over the tour in their stead. Lee participated in two previous tours, and has extesnive experience with historic organs, including those on the tour.

Time is built into the schedule for organists to play the instruments, as well as hear about their history and restoration. But the tour is not only for organists! It is for anyone interested in historic cities, churches, and organs, and anyone interested in seeing the magnificent attractions of eastern Germany reborn since reunification. Plenty of time is in the schedule for sightseeing.

The well-organised tour includes stays in 4-star hotels, most meals, and travel by deluxe motorcoach. Accompanying the tour is English-speaking German guide, Lothar Mohlmann, who also assisted with the previous four tours.
