Tea Time with Melanie

In this edition of Tea Time, CAMP Founder Melanie Prapopoulos walks us through the itinerary for the last quarter of 2020. Usually our busiest season, we've packed it full of new experiences and exhibtions—typically CAMP.
September 1, 2021

As we approach the 4th quarter at The CAMP gallery, we’re scrambling to prepare for a whirlwind of new artists,  a new website, exhibitions, art fairs, a new gallery space, and granting wishes. 


This September, we are honored to fulfill the lifelong wish of Stella Resnick, a 99 (and half) year old woman who, while caring for her family and business, steadfastly created textile art but never had the time to pursue an art career. In partnership with FAMA, we are installing her life’s work on the walls in our North Miami space on NE 125th Street, entitled Stella's Stitch. Right on the heels of that exhibition, CAMP is launching the season by participating in this year’s edition of SPRING/BREAK Art Show in New York, at 625 Madison Ave with artists: Aurora MolinaDominik SchmittLeslie SheryllTracy Nicholls, and new additions to The CAMP, Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti.

Directly after SPRING/BREAK, we are opening the doors at our new gallery space in Westport, CT at 190 Main Street. Our first exhibition is a solo show featuring works from Dominik Schmitt—or as the artist himself put it: “a Schmitt load of new works!” For more information, please feel free to email us at westport@thecampgallery.com.


Next month in North Miami, we’ll be launching our annual exhibition: Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse: FAMA Quilts. After the huge divide of 2020, we are looking at ways to unite, to piece together realities, and to blanket life in the security of a patchwork quilt.


In November, North Miami will see the first solo exhibition of Bego M. Santiago in our gallery, where viewers will be immersed in the world of video; life as seen through Bego’s eyes. In the Westport gallery, the walls will be dressed with the works of Franck de las Mercedes, who will also be having his first solo exhibition with us. 


We are also incredibly excited to announce that we will be participating in Scope Miami Beach this year exhibiting works by Idris HabibMoses ZiborElena MonzoDominik Schmitt and, new to our roster, Carlos Gamez de Francisco. Meanwhile, at the gallery, Shelly McCoy will be marching on society with her art. 


Lastly and very importantly, even though it’s the end of summer, we have been busy welcoming new CAMP artists, including: Michael Garlington & Natalia BertottiCarlos Gamez de FranciscoGiulia Caruso, and Majo Pino.


I’d like to thank Art Logic for helping us launch a new website to better present both our artists and what we do.


I can’t wait for this quarter! It is always the most hectic, pulling at one from all directions, but it is also the most fun and energized time of the year. We all look forward to seeing you, and hope you all stay well!


See you soon,
