The artist collective presented in this exhibition was founded by Carlos Solis in 2008 in response to the lack of Latin American representation in the Atlanta art scene. Fellow artist Stanley Bermudez suggested the name Contrapunto (Spanish for "counterpoint") because, "In music, Counterpoint (Contrapunto) is the technique of combining two or more melodic lines in such a way that they establish a harmonic relationship while retaining their linear individuality." The group works jointly and separately through visual art to promote awareness and appreciation of Hispanic and Latino culture, folklore, and history.
Stephen Smith Fine Art specializes in cutting edge modern and contemporary fine art with a primary focus on artists whose work engages social issues. Our mission is to share what we believe to be some of the most important and inspiring artists today. Located in a silent-film era theater in historic downtown Fairfield - ten minutes from the Birmingham Museum of Art - Stephen Smith Fine Art strives to cultivate a culture of exploration and art appreciation, and supports public art initiatives throughout the Greater Birmingham area.
Stephen Smith Fine Art is open Fridays and Saturdays from 11am-2:30pm, Sundays from noon-3:30pm, and by appointment.
