Hundreds of loyal fans gathered at the Lowe Art Museum in late August to wish Brian A.Dursum a happy retirement. Mr. Dursum has been the Director and Chief Curator of the Lowe for the last 40 years. He said, “It has been my privilege to work for the Lowe Art Museum. With the support of our members, patrons, and staff, I believe we have accomplished a great deal over those years but there is always more to be done.” Dr. Shalala (who plans to leave her post at the U of M soon), thanked Mr. Dursum for his dedicated service and she and the Board.
Possibly the grand dame of all of the art galleries in Key Biscayne is run by a very clever, astute art-lover named Naydu Commenoz. The works exhibited in her art space are (in my humble opinion), picture perfect, gloriously symbolic and definitely top-notch.
The Oxenberg Art Gallery located in the heart of Wynwood is presently showcasing works by Alejandro Mendoza, Sophie Bryces, Volker Kuhn, Bea Oxenberg and Fernando Vignoli. In the same space art lovers can alsoview paintings and sculptures represented by Kelley Roy Gallery.
