For the 14th edition of this popular exhibition and fund-raiser, the Center will give ticket buyers on the closing-night draw two options for selecting their artwork – in person in the Center’s Main Gallery or they can have a designated Center staff member pick their artwork by proxy while watching the event live streamed on the Center’s Facebook Live. For details on how proxies work, please call 954.921.3274. 

Vickie Pierre

A solo exhibition of new works by artist Emilio Perez. This exhibition, composed of large-scale paintings produced over the past year, explores the artists' connection with the tropical landscape. Perez's paintings exemplify the dynamic forces of nature and lead the viewer through unfolding narratives of fictional, intimate, and emotional places.


Nick Mahshie

Nick Mahshie, b.1985 in Southwest Miami-Dade County, Florida and lives and works in Miami, Florida. Mahshie received a Masters of Design degree in Fashion, Body & Garment in 2017 from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 2007. Shifting freely between Art & Design practices, his work makes clear reference to the visual language of saturated Miami culture while challenging the seductive palette of both our landscape and our sartorial inclinations. His background in Painting, Fashion, and Print Design coalesce in the immersive installations, wearable sculpture and designed objects he creates.


Nathalie Alfonso

Nathalie Alfonso (b. 1987, Bogota, Colombia) currently lives in South Florida. Alfonso holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University, Dallas TX, and a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Florida International University, Miami FL. Alfonso has exhibited and performed her work in public spaces, such as NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, Dimensions Variable, Spinello Projects, Art and Culture Center Hollywood, Miami Beach Urban Studios, The Projects – Fat Village, Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, Sweet Pass Sculpture Park, Site131, Marymount University. Alfonso received the SouthFlorida Cultural Consortium (SFCC) 19/20, she was awarded the Experiencing Perspectives Mercedez-Benz Financial Services prize in 2019, and she has received the Jones Fund and Zelle Fund Grant. She has been selected to be part of the Home + Away Art Residency by Oolite Arts Miami in Atlantic Center for the Arts in Smyrna FL, and The Anderson Ranch in Snowmass Colorado. Unseen work and the exercise of emotional control are central to Alfonso's practice. The qualities of invisibility and visibility become the foundations from which she develops drawings, installations, performances, and videos.
