Cremata Gallery is pleased to present at arteamericas Booth # 912
an exhibition of paintings by DEMI, one of the most critically acclaimed Cuban-American artists in the United States.
March 2 -March 5, 2012
Miami Beach Convention Center, Hall A
1901 Convention Center Drive
Miami Beach, Florida
The exhibition is an extensive body of work, executed within the past five years by a painter known for her mastery of color, light, and texture. The exhibition will open on Friday, March 2 at 5p.m. for the private preview by invitation only and will continue until Monday, March 5.
DEMIÕs work is highly acclaimed and has been widely exhibited and published.
She has been represented in group and solo exhibitions for more than 25 years, and often uses her work as a forum to raise awareness for childrenÕs rights. Since 1998, the SmithsonianÕs Archives of American Art has been collecting DEMIÕs primary records (correspondence, notebooks, drawings, photographs, catalogues). In 2009, DEMI was personally invited by the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, Miguel Diaz, to display one of her works in the U.S. Embassy residence in the Vatican City.
One of her paintings, Two Artists and Their Children of Their Imagination, will be on view for two and a half years as part of the prestigious Art in Embassies program. Established in 1963, the U.S. Department of StateÕs office of ART in Embassies plays a vital role in our nationÕs public diplomacy through a culturally expansive mission, creating temporary exhibitions and permanent collections, artist and cultural exchange programming, and publications.
DEMIÕs biography, artist statement and images of her paintings has just been included in the prestigious Feminist Art Base of the Brooklyn Museum Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, together with renowned women artists as Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Pilar AlbarracIn, Sara Charlesworth and Andrea Bowers.
DEMIÕs works are featured in many public and private collections worldwide and have been widely exhibited in galleries and museums in Switzerland, France, Panama, Puerto Rico and the United States.
