The collective works of over 100 artists from around the world will be on display at Sunset Drive November 7 and 8. The setting for this fine art show alone is inspiring. Find yourself surrounded by a lush landscape, wide sidewalks, lovely cafés and quaint little shops.
The juried event features art in the categories of ceramics and clay, digital art, textiles, glass, jewelry and metalwork, two-dimensional mixed media, three-dimensional mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking and drawing, sculpture, and wood. Sponsoring the event is Chamber South, the chamber of commerce for Greater South Miami-Dade.
But wait! How can any Miami event be complete without music and food to set the mood? Find delicious international food and live musical entertainment the entire family can enjoy together.
