Coming to sexy Miami from the trendy streets of Los Angeles, ABRA Gallery, South Florida’s newest art curators, officially opened its doors earlier this month. And now, to celebrate its Bay Harbor Islands debut, this eclectic gallery is welcoming Miami’s finest to a swank grand opening soiree unlike any other – and it’s taking place later this week.
Home to everything from figurative acrylic paintings and bronze sculptures, to abstract, limited-edition prints, ABRA Gallery – which stands for “Art By Renowned Artist” – boasts some of the most eccentric art collections around. The haute gallery’s brilliant team of organizers and collectors regularly collaborates with top museum curators and catalogues, becoming both a renowned locale for art enthusiasts worldwide, and a key figure in the continued education and development of avid art collectors.
Set to take place this Thursday, February 25th, the grand opening event will feature a live, unconventional large-scale painting by ABRA Gallery’s esteemed artist, Hessam Abrishami. Born in Iran in 1951, Hessam constantly debuts powerful creations largely influenced by Iranian and European history. Within his dynamic career, he has created nearly 20,000 private collections worldwide, and has presented his art in over 100 One-Man Gallery Shows and 25 international exhibitions. At the new ABRA Gallery, his works will be joined by pieces from other global artists and creators – including respected talents like Goli Mahallati, Behrooz Valiani, Hamid Asadi, Saeed Asadi and more.
The new ABRA Gallery is located at 1086 Kane Concourse. The grand opening event will take place this Thursday, February 25th from 7 to 10 PM, and will include cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres.
