The Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show, South Florida’s largest and premier home improvement expo will take place, Labor Day Weekend, from Friday, August 31st to Monday, September 3rd (Labor Day) a NEW LOCATION, Mana Wynwood Convention Center, 318 NW 23rd St, Miami, 33127.
One of television’s most recognized architects/designers, John Gidding of TLC’s “Trading Spaces” will be the Home Show’s featured speaker presenting, Living in Art: Decorating Through Self-Expression. Gidding will also paint an original work of art during the first day (before and between presentations) which will be raffled off to an audience member at his final presentation.
“I enjoy painting ad hoc and I think it’ll be a great way of getting people to think about where they’d put a contemporary piece in their home, as they’ll potentially win the piece that’s right there,” comments Gidding.
Gidding will share some takeaways on how to feel about your own “art collection”; identify ways of making walls have a purpose in each room; introduce different usages of art in interiors through furniture, installations, paintings, graffiti, etc.; and discuss the role of art in “Trading Spaces” and why it’s always put off as “homework.”
Giddings’ seminars take place at the Ygrene Home Improvement Stage at 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 2nd and Monday (Labor Day), September 3rd.
