Artformz Alternative presents "Rapture," a collection of new work by Natasha Duwin and Henning Haupt. Mr. Haupt’s color-space paintings celebrate the rapture of change after his move from Berlin to South Florida. Ms. Duwin’s work is a statement on the feminine condition by using traditionally "feminine" techniques and non-traditional materials, such as mixing soft fibers with metal structures. Ends May 3. Artformz Alternative, 171 NW 23rd St., Wynwood. Details: www.artformz.net.
