AVA Fine Art at Acoustic Architects had its debut during Art Basel 2010.
Acoustic Architects, a high end home automation installation company,
resides in the heart of the Wynwood Art district. With their 1000 square foot
open space, they decided to invite local artists to display their art during Art
Basel and at the same time showcasing a state of the art 12’ projector screen
presented by Digital Projection and Stewart Film Screens.
The Art Basel exhibition “Sensory Luxury” received such accolades that
Acoustic Architects invited the artists of “Sensory Luxury” to create a
permanent gallery in the space, now called AVA Fine Art @ Acoustic Architects.
AVA is an acronym for Audio and Visual Art, thus integrating the talents of both
Acoustic Architects and AVA artists. AVA is committed to featuring
contemporary works of art by local and international emerging and mid-careers
artists through solo and group exhibitions. Works will include original
paintings, photography, sculptures, wood, metal, and multi-media art.
The 12’ Digital Projection Screen also provides state of the art technology for
video and digital artists. AVA will also be the host to a variety of social, local
and national non-for profit events.
There are four resident artists at AVA. Jen Haley, Kurt Merkel, Troy Simmons, and Christina Major. Each month, the 2nd Saturday of each month, The Wynwood Arts District in Miami Florida hosts a gallery night. This is when all galleries stay open until 10 pm, and crowds of people come to enjoy art, music, wine, and food.
