November 30 – December 4th
SPECTRUM MIAMI – This is happening now! Spectrum Miami is one of the largest shows under the sub-event of Art Basel Miami – an influential art week held in the trés chique arts and design district of the city. Dimitra Milan as well as her parents John and Elli Milan are exhibiting some of their newest and most inspired work yet. They are not in attendance, as they are gearing up for important shows later on this month, but Owner Larry McCarthy and GM Justin Montgomery are there to meet with collectors and gallery owners. Meet them at Booth #811 and #912 sponsored by Blink from 12 – 8PM today!
Also this weekend – if you’re already on the North Shore checking out the winter waves, come visit Heather Brown at the 11th Annual Wyland Gallery Haleiwa Surf Art Show! Heather will be in attendance with her latest originals, alongside other inspiring surf-inspired artists from around the world. Later on this month on December 30th, Heather will be saying goodbye to 2016 with a solo show at the Wyland Gallery in Waikiki. If you can’t make it out this weekend, come check out this awesome gallery and the charming surrounding boutiques.
December 9th – 10th
Take your date on the perfect date night with part two of Dimitra Milan’s Hawai’i Tour. This art-filled weekend includes stops in Waikiki, and Waikoloa on the Big Island.
