MANO Fine Art is pleased to present the 2013 edition of Made in the U.S.A., an exciting annual group exhibition that examines shifting boundaries between the origins of creativity and ingenuity and how they’re influenced by contemporary American culture.
This year sixteen artists, all with ties to South Florida, have been invited to collectively create an interpretive, visual perspective for viewers to reflect on what it means to be “made” in the U.S.A. a question that resonates even more poignantly in today’s environment.The messaging and mediums presented in the exhibit are as fluid and varied as the artists. The work presents a challenging gamut of artistic mastery ranging from classic Americana as interpreted by Jane Harris’ oil on canvas ,“638”; Carlos Stincer’s silk screen perfections ,“Made in China”; Ed Berounsky’s aluminum sculpture ”Blue Woman”; MANO’s sculptural hybrid of re purposed objects, “Put A Lid On It”; and the project launch of “War Mammas” a powerful video installation by Patricia Figueroa Sowers.
The exhibition will open on Saturday, September 21st, 7-10 pm in conjunction with the Bird Road Art and will also feature a special performance by Invention Theater & Production Company —The Company’s two troupes—Negative Four Months and Always Cherish Cheese—will present a small showcase of short-form improve throughout the night.
Made in the U.S.A. will be open to the public every Saturday from 2-6 pm through October 13th. Artist’s talks will also be scheduled in conjunction with the exhibit. For more info and updates about events for the exhibition please contact: 305.467.6819.

On the third Saturday of every month we invite the art-loving public to join us from 7:00 -10:00 pm, for an evening of art and artistic vibes, and the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes in the artists studios which are normally only open by appointment.
The Art Walk takes place just east of the Palmetto Expressway’s 40th Street Exit and just south of 40th Street (also known as “Bird Road”). Primarily on SW 75 Ave & SW 74 Ave. Enjoy ample free parking, a complimentary shuttle service. Start your Art Walk at any of the participating studios.
