"I would tend to say that my first love affair was with a crayon and a white piece of paper.  Ever since I can remember, picking up a pen, crayon or colored pencil and letting my brain waver with thoughts superf



Yogi Box

 Wood box, carved and painted. Yogi boxes came after a weekly yoga class that I started taking about six months ago.  I was so inspired by the way the instructor closes the class, and a big part of it is the tonal quality of her voice, she always states “there is nothing to add, nothing to substract, you are perfect”.  What a mantra for a pseudo perturbed Cuban.  I came home and created the little yogi. Soon I was giving him/her/it away to friends and placing it on top of small boxes with inspirational quotes. So, in honor of my yoga instructor, the illustrious Rhonda, I bring you, the Yogi Box.  Each box is hand carved, you will notice that all lines are composed of dots, I am still currently teaching myself how to use the tool.  It has a nasty habit of getting a tad bit hot and my small digits take quick offense. The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.

ArtesMiami hosts event to welcome new chair of the board, and award money to filmmakers

November 09, 2022

ArtesMiami will announce $60,000 in grants to documentary filmmakers of Cuban-American origin or who are producing work about the Cuban diaspora at an event on Nov. 10 at Manolis Projects Gallery. The recipients will be awarded at an event that will be attended by trustees and directors of Perez Art Museum Miami, artists and collectors. The event will also officially recognize the new chair of ArtesMiami, Maria Bechily.

It was announced in June that Bechily would take over the position as Chair of the Board of Directors of ArtesMiami Inc., a nonprofit organization that supports and promotes the work of Cuban-American artists and cultural institutions. “I am honored to have been chosen by the board to preside over such a prestigious nonprofit group as ArtesMiami,” Bechily told El Nuevo Herald in an interview. “The programs and artists that ArtesMiami supports are critical to strengthening Miami’s position as an international center for art and culture. I look forward to providing strategic leadership to our board so that we can further develop the organization.” ArtesMiami has been led by publicist and philanthropist Aida Levitan, Ph.D. and has donated more than $2.7 million in in-kind services and cash to cultural organizations and artists, primarily in South Florida.
