New art gallery on Wilton Drive

da Fonseca Contemporânea, the newest art gallery on Wilton Drive, will hold its opening reception on Friday. Nov. 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the newly remodeled Zig Zag Building, 2201 Wilton Drive. “For its premier show, da Fonseca Contemporânea presents the works of its owner, Aster da Fonseca. Aster began working in 2012 on the Silver Series, presented in this show, which represents his interest in body forms and movement. In 2014, he began including geometric shapes, inspired by many of his contemporaries, eventually abandoning his curvy, sensual works and evolving in 2015 to more geometric work. The paintings presented in this show represent the evolution of Aster’s works and his move to Florida in 2016, hence the show’s title ‘From One State to Another.’” For more information, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
