With his first solo exhibition “Welcome to MarZ” at Butter Gallery [On view through August 30th, 2014] in Miami, Jeffrey Noble presents five large-scale paintings that explore the digital future and related angst, the Internet generation’s nostalgia and the history of his hometown.

Noble, a graduate of Miami’s prestigious New World School of the Arts fuses traditional oil painting techniques with contemporary ideas of artistic story telling.

His work is inspired by the South Florida landscape, lifestyle and culture and he incorporates graffiti sensibilities and spray paint, to introduce a contemporary urban context to his paintings.

With a Collector's Preview Opening on Thursday, September 11th, 2014 from 6 to 8PM, the Wynwood-based gallery Zadok will inaugurate two solo exhibitions during the fall: "almost empty" by Japanese-born artist Kumi Yamashita (MFA Glasgow School of Art '99), and "Agitations" by Australian-born artist Lucas Davidson (MFA Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney '12).

Without much thought, we instinctively trust our own shadows.

With a free and open to the public Opening Reception scheduled for Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 from 6 to 9PM,  the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum will inaugurate a fall exhibition entitled "Still" (On view through October 19th) by Miami-based artist Marisa Tellería (BFA Sculpture, Florida International '93, MFA Sculpture, Virginia Commonwealth University '96).
