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 June, the Gallery hosts the Three Women: Three Elements exhibition. The representative works reap from the creative strengths of three women artists who each works with a different element: water, clay and metal converging this space in time.

For the month of July, the works of two emerging artists will be featured in the Gallery: artist Tiffany Perpina and photographer Bradford Lloyd. Tiffany is a self-taught artist who found therapy in her painting, and inspired to explore her interests by her stepdad.
