Amerant Launches its Newest Amerant Art Exhibit Just in Time for Art Week 2020

Works feature sculptures in the headquarters lobby

November 30, 2020

MIAMI, Fla. – Building on a 40-year legacy of supporting the arts, Amerant, one of the largest community bank headquartered in Florida, is proud to announce its latest art rotation that will be exhibited until February of 2021 in the bank’s headquarters featuring works by local and Latin American artists.

The unveiling arrives just in time to pay homage to Art Week 2020, and includes more than 40 pieces, by eight artists. This year, artworks can be viewed on the 2nd, 5th, and 12th floors and include beautiful metal sculptures in the bank’s main lobby.

“As a community bank committed to supporting the arts in our community, we at Amerant are all very excited to be unveiling this latest collection of works during Art Week,” said Millar Wilson, CEO of Amerant Bank. “We are truly proud to showcase the talents and creative individuals that make up our local community and display their labor of love in our spaces.”

The exhibit titled (UN) BALANCES, expresses what many people have been feeling in this unprecedented seasons and features works by, Rafeal Ranguel from Miami, Sigfredo Chacon from Venezuela, Igancio Muv from Chile, Mariela Perez from Venezuela, Pedro Vizcaino from Cuba, Marcus Blake from Jamaica, Nestor Arenas from Cuba, and Alberto Cavalieri from Venezuela.

These collections of works have color as the main expression of visual arts, among other components that complement color – including its composition that can be seen through paintings and drawings. Color plays a vital and emotional role in contemporary art – whether it evokes a pleasant feeling or not – color in modern pieces are an essential component, while optical blends of pointillism and cinetism do not play as much a role in contemporary works of art; it’s all about color to express art forms. Amerant Art’s current rotation, (UN) BALANCES aims to interpret this paradox through the curated selection of works.

Espacio Visible, which is led by Adriana Gomez and Anilu Gomez, two of the area’s most respected art consultants in the industry, curated this collection on behalf of Amerant Bank. Small private tours are available and can be reserved by emailing: espaciovisiblearte@gmail.com.

Most recently, Amerant, also introduced the ‘Amerant Latin American Gallery’ in a partnership with The Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH) in Houston. An impressive gallery located within the new Kinder Building that is dedicated to exhibiting the museum’s fast-growing international collections of modern and contemporary art.

On Dec. 9th at 12 p.m., the bank will also be hosting a virtual LIVE Art Talks panel with the artists on FaceBook Live and on IGTV.
