Life Is Art and Robin Rile Fine Art
Official Call For Artists
Summer Show and Celebration
Life Is Art has partnered with Robin Rile Fine Art to produce a fine contemporary art show featuring south Florida artists in an upscale sales environment targeted at real art collectors and buyers, as well as potential art lovers.
Robin Rile Fine Art presents
The 2012 Life Is Art Summer Show and Celebration
Sponsored by Dan Sehres and Carl Kruse
1545 Meridian Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33139
Date & Time:
Saturday, June 23, 2012
Art Show: 4:00pm – 7:30pm, By Invitation Only
After-party: 7:30pm – 11:00pm, Open to All
After-party cost: $20.00 donation at the door
This will be an art event in two parts. The first half, 4:00pm to 7:30pm is invitation only and targeted on up-market art collectors and buyers. Robine Rile Fine Art and Life Is Art will identify those persons through various channels and reach out to them directly. The art show portion will include soft music and light beverages to help set the mood. During this part, we will focus on art sales and educating buyers on the quality of work available from south Florida artists.
The second half, 7:30pm – 11:00pm is open to everyone and is more of a celebration of the arts in south Florida. For a $20 door donation, it includes a live band, sponsored bar and light bites. The goal of this portion of the event is to expose young professional potential art collectors to the work produced in south Florida.
This is a show for real art lovers; those interested in learning more and purchasing work from artists based in south Florida. While there are many amazing fine contemporary artists practicing in south Florida, many collectors do not realize it. Not because of any lack on their part, but because of a lack of opportunities. How are they to find the new masters with so few chances to see them? The Life Is Art Summer Show and Celebration connects south Florida art lovers with south Florida artists.
The Villa is a beautiful two-story venue in the heart of South Beach. Just blocks from Lincoln, it includes a lovely enclosed courtyard area with a pool. The event takes place both inside and outside.
