THE WIRTZ GALLERY
Located in the lobby of the First National Bank of South Miami, each month The Wirtz Gallery presents local & international artists. Gallery hours are Monday to Thursday 9a-4p, and Friday, 9a-6p. Artist receptions are generally held on the second Friday of the month from 6-9p and are open to the public.
In February the gallery will host native South Floridian Rick Poston. Growing up here, he has found much enjoyment in the tropical native surroundings, and his work captures the beauty around him. His work is part of numerous collections in South Florida. It was natural for Rick “to concentrate on the Everglades as a nascent venue for creativity and portray the subtle and sometimes dramatic beauty through art. Access to the more remote areas by kayak began to and continue to fuel my work,” according to Poston.
Marcy Grosso art will be exhibited in March. Her life and art embody the bridging of traditional Cuban culture and modern American dynamism: literate in the romantic Spanish sentiments of the past, yet comfortably situated in the unaccented English currents of contemporary Miami. Marcy works solely on black canvases, giving her paintings – lush with an array of colors a deeply compelling richness and personality.

Last fall, arango went from the mall to main street. The store regularly features exhibitions of modern design artists with their collections.
