Following up from producing their stellar art show featuring one of the nation’s most popular artists to date — Hebru Brantley’s Penny Candy exhibit at the posh Loews Atlanta Hotel in Midtown — AllWays Open Creative Solutions is set to make history once again for Georgia Capital’s art scene.

Taking place in Loews Atlanta Hotel’s stunning lobby, the highly anticipated Latin ConTEMPOrary is set to showcase recent works by mixed-media genius Esteban Patino from Colombia (estebanpatino.com) and fascinating sculpture created by Uruguay’s Bruno Armesto. Pieces from internationally recognized art dealer Gerardo Reyes’ Ger Art collection (Ger Art LLC) will also be presented via a “TEMPO” journey from modern to contemporary, between inspiring “geometric abstraction” and the exquisite expressions of today. This collection includes Jesus Soto (Venezuela), Carlos Cruz Diez (Venezuela), Julio Leparc (Argentina), Carmen Herrera (Cuba), Francisco Sobrino (Spain), and Fernando Canovas (Argentina).
Esteemed guests will also vibe to the live sounds of the Bossa nova-seasoned GoZon & Gay band and Loews Atlanta Hotel’s favorite performing collective Calle Flamenco. Additionally, proud Dominican Republic representative DJ Mafioso will spin Latin-inspired tunes from various music genres throughout the evening.
To keep art enthusiasts refreshed, Loews Atlanta Hotel’s award-winning Master Chef Olivier Gaupin will provide complementary delectable bites. There will also be an assortment of libations from the bar including beer direct from Brazil and Guatemala; cocktail specials featuring rum, tequila, and cachaça; and especially Latin-inspired vodka drinks courtesy of Svedka of will be served.
And to embrace the TEMPO theme, Toyota will be showcasing their gorgeous, all-new Avalon luxury sedan, and Scion unveils the highly anticipated 2014 tC sports coupe during the evening. There will be representatives on hand to give you an informative walk-around of the models on site. There will also be a special prize for a few selected guests courtesy of Toyota and Scion.
