Today I’m confirming the artists (names and images further down in this post) who will be part of our Holiday ‘Art’ Bazaar at The Mutiny Hotel on December 5th in Coconut Grove, Florida.
For one-night-only, you can shop, enjoy complimentary champagne and chocolates, listen to live jazz by Leo Casino, and purchase unique, original art, jewelry, sculpture, fine art prints, cards, handbags, and more ‘art’ gifts created by professional artists, designers, and craftspeople of South Florida, Latin America, and the Netherlands – all in one place!
A LITTLE BACKGROUND ART INFO:
On the first Saturday of every month, Coconut Grove hosts an ever-changing, stimulating, and more often than not, surprising (I always love when the people of Hare Krishna parade through the galleries and share their joyful music and energy!) Art Stroll.
December promises to be one of the best ever because, after all, Art Basel Miami is in town and… ART IS EVERYWHERE!!! So much that it’s almost a bit overwhelming, especially if you try to see it all and attend every event.
This year, you’ll have the option of taking a leisurely Art Break. Join us at the Holiday Art Bazaar, sip complimentary champagne, enjoy luscious chocolates and get some (or all) of your holiday shopping done at the same time, in the same place!
THE MUTINY HOTEL PRESENTS – PURE IMAGINATION – HOLIDAY ART BAZAAR
The Arts continue to thrive in historic Coconut Grove, and the once-infamous (I’ve heard many eyebrow-raising stories!) Mutiny Hotel now draws a new kind of attention to itself, every first Saturday from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The bright swatch of coral that is The Mutiny Hotel and the intensely blue South Florida sky offer the perfect backdrop for the colorful and thought-provoking works of South Florida’s artists.
Join us on Dec. 5th, 2009 for an exclusive,
ONE-NIGHT-ONLY, Holiday Art Bazaar!
This is your chance to see some of the most creative works of this select group of artists in a casual setting, with complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine pours, champagne and chocolates. Jazz musician, Leo Casino will be entertaining us in his impressive and incomparable style.
Enjoy Poolside Cocktails and Dinner… before or after Art!
Atchana’s East/West Kitchen is a sophisticated hideaway located on the ground level of The Mutiny Hotel. Open to the public and hotel guests, this unique dining establishment serves a sumptuous array of fresh, authentic Asian dishes, along with American Classics such as New York Strip Steak and Snapper Filets.
Enjoy dinner and/or cocktails in the intimate wood-paneled 45-seat indoor dining room, or outdoors, next to the poolside waterfall.

â€œIâ€™d Rather Be In The Studioâ€
Marketing & Business for ARTISTS by Alyson Stanfield
by Percy Cat | Apr 27, 2009 | art business, Art Marketing Salon, Miami Art Marketing Salon, Press Release
Miami Art Marketing Salon, an eclectic group of more than 20 artists, gather weekly for support at Windisch-Hunt Fine Art in Coconut Grove.
Coconut Grove, FL, April 27, 2009 “ The Art Market is not immune to recession. The Mei Moses Art Index that tracks pricing in the art market, is down 35% for the first quarter of 2009. Many Miami galleries are closing their doors.
But adversity breeds creativity and… leaders. To keep going, Miami artist Debra Cortese launched Miami Art Marketing Salon this month, a biz education and support group for local artists.
The idea was born last year when Cortese, whose trademark is Nature’s Energy art, took an online art business course by ArtBiz coach, Alyson Stanfield.
Stanfield, an author of I’d Rather Be In The Studio, the artist’s no-excuse guide to self-promotion, designed a concept of a â€œmarketing salonâ€ that offers a blueprint for artists to form a local support group.
The nine-meeting program plan can be downloaded from Stanfield’s website, artbizconnection.com, free of charge.
April 7, the day Cortese launched the Miami Art Markting Salon, more than 20 artists showed up at Windisch-Hunt Fine Art Gallery in Coconut Grove. Annamaria Windisch-Hunt, the gallery owner and artist herself, is happy to host this creative group.
Cortese facilitates the salon using the free nine-meeting program plan developed by Alyson Stanfield. The program coversÂ how to set goals, define your art, assess and improve sales opportunities and other important art business topics.
Balloon Artist, Irina Patterson, spotted Cortese’s post about the Miami Art Salon on Twitter and joined. Debra is a perfect example of a leader who turns an adversity into an advantage, Patterson said. If it wouldn’t be for her own desire to succeed, these local artists would probably never meet face-to-face. And what an amazing group this is!

On April 7, 2009, South Florida artists gathered at Windisch-Hunt Fine Art Gallery in Coconut Grove for the first Miami Art Marketing Salon. This is a nine session course with materials provided free of charge by Alyson Stanfield, Art Biz Coach and author of I’d Rather Be In The Studio, the artist’s no-excuse guide to self-promotion.
South Miami artist and handbag designer, Debra Cortese had participated in one of Stanfield’s online marketing courses and was so impressed with the material that she made the commitment to facilitate this course for fellow artists that are interested in promoting their work and careers. You can read more about the Art Salon in the following blog posts:
