Art Fusion Gallery was conceived in 2002 as a result of the collaborative efforts by a Cuban-American Artist and entrepreneur, William Braemer and local financier Jay Jakela. Their combined vision and business platform of the gallery is to provide the opportunity for emerging to mid-career artists from around the globe to exhibit, promote and enter the discerning Miami art market.
Quite often, emerging artists encounter difficulties in promoting, marketing and selling their works. However, through William"s extensive and successful business background, combined with his passion for art as an Artist, he founded the gallery on the principle that all emerging artists have an equal opportunity to enhance their artistic career through gallery representation.
Ten years later, Art Fusion Gallery is now one of the longest-standing art galleries located in the Miami Wynwood Art District, a testament to the vision of the galleries' roots. Situated in the heart of Miami's Wynwood Art District, the 8,000 square foot Chelsea-style gallery showcases an international collection of original art from a spectacular array of talented artists. The gallery presently represents over 800 artists from around the globe, this scope of cultural artistic diversity is reflected in the galleries' vibrant, distinctive and provocative energy.
The gallery features four dynamic exhibitions annually, each highlighting a display of contemporary colorful works of art. Described as eclectic and diverse, a wide array of artistic styles and mediums offer each visitor to the gallery an elaborate collection suited for any discerning collector.
In addition to each exhibition, the Miami Wynwood Art District celebrates Gallery Nights held on the second Saturday of each month from 7-10 p.m. This event features live entertainment, refreshments and valet parking, each Gallery Night provides our artists the opportunity to meet the public and gain exposure through local and international media coverage. Most of our artists are available for commission pieces, we are competitively priced and offer art consultative services. Corporate art leasing programs are offered with financing available. Art Fusion Gallery has an extensive network established with local and international interior design houses, we honor trade discounts and ship internationally.
Art Fusion Galleries has joined forces with the Hotel Urbano in Miami, an Art Boutique Hotel located on Brickell Avenue in the financial district. The hotel exhibits all original artwork exclusively created by artists represented by Art Fusion Galleries. All artwork is displayed salon style and available for purchase. This strategic partnership offers our artists an alternative venue to exhibit their artwork in addition to the gallery.
