CityArtsFactory Orlando in Art Basel

I am beyond excited to have been selected to participate in the Special Preview Exhibition: AQUA Art Miami here in Orlando. With Central Florida’s growing community of talented artists, the Downtown Arts District wants to generate greater awareness of Orlando as a cultural destination. Art Basel week in Miami offers an international audience with several art fairs at one time. The Downtown Arts District/CityArts Factory applied and was accepted to participate in the 2017 AQUA Art Miami fair, December 7-10. Central Florida artists were invited to submit up to five pieces for consideration. The call was a competitive application juried by a distinguished panelist including: Shanon Fitzgerald, Patrick Greene, Theo Lotz, Alya Poplawsky and Tiffany Sanders. Six artists of 51 were accepted to participate:
Gianna DiBartolomeo I Fahan McDonough I Kit Mezeres
Adriaan Mol I Patricia Lois Nuss I Richard Reep
