Fredric Snitzer Gallery’s current space includes a 1,400 square foot indoor exhibition space, divided into two galleries, and a 2,600 square foot outdoor sculpture garden.

The gallery is committed to presenting work across all media including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, and performance from a diverse range of contemporary artists, the gallery has maintained a rigorous exhibition schedule that features at least eight rotating exhibitions by its artists each year.

 
 
 

Snitzer was one of the early champions of contemporary Latin American art in the States.
Avant-garde Cuban artists in particular continue to have a strong presence on the gallery’s roster.

“In the 1980s and ‘90s, contemporary Latin American art was new territory and extremely undervalued, so I saw the opportunity. Because of the political situation, there were like 5,000 rafters a year from Cuba arriving on the shores of Miami. And because I had started out representing Luis Cruz Azaceta, my gallery was attractive to those artists. I became sort of the outpost for Cuban refugees. There were a lot of really exciting artists in that group including Carlos Cárdenas and José Bedia, who already had an international career when he arrived. Many others followed.”

 
 

In the new millennium, Miami went global with Art Basel.


Snitzer’s continuous presence in the Miami art scene as artist and dealer, his local knowledge and his extensive list of longtime collectors made him a natural choice for Art Basel’s selection committee when the fair launched in Miami. He has served on the committee board of Art Basel Miami Beach since its inception.
