Designed to connect, engage, and inspire all people, this event also includes a complimentary guided meditation.

Sergio Gomez is a visual artist who has recently made the move from Chicago to South Florida. He is known for his striking large-scale figurative abstraction paintings and charcoal drawings that delve into the profound cycles of life. With a compelling artistic career, Sergio's work has been featured in over 45 solo exhibitions across the United States, as well as in museums in Romania, Italy, Mexico, and Vienna.

In addition to his solo exhibitions, he has participated in over 150 group exhibitions in a wide array of countries, including Spain, Sweden, Mexico, Austria, Italy, South Korea, England, Kairo, Belgium, and the United States. His work has been acquired by prestigious public collections, such as the National Museum of Mexican Art and the Brauer Museum, as well as in the homes of avid private collectors.

Beyond his studio practice, Sergio Gomez has curated over 100 exhibitions in the US and abroad. His extraordinary journey as a curator began in 2010 and has since unfolded through various influential roles, including his current position as the Director of Exhibitions at the Zhou B. Art Center in Chicago, and his directorship and founding of 33 Contemporary Gallery.

He is not only an accomplished artist and curator but also co-founder of the renowned coaching academy Art NXT Level® which helps artists build a sustainable art career. In 2015, he launched the Art NXT Level podcast, which garners thousands of listeners from the artist community each week. With a vast repository of 375+ podcast episodes, and 750+ YouTube videos, Sergio's content continues to inspire and educate contemporary artists worldwide.

Lastly, Sergio Gomez is honored to be part of the Lunar Codex Project by Dr. Samuel Peralta, a digitized collection of global contemporary art and cultural expressions. Deployed on the moon by SpaceX, a selection of Sergio's artwork, along with curated exhibitions from 33 Contemporary Gallery, contributes to this extraordinary initiative. The first installment landed on the moon on February 22nd, with more lunar launches scheduled throughout 2024.

His dedication to nurturing and empowering artists is a testament to his unwavering dedication to the creative community and his role as a beacon of inspiration for artists and art enthusiasts alike.
