South Beach’s latest hotel addition, Riviera South Beach Hotel opened its doors to Alexandria Hilfiger’s newest collection “Melting Water” on Thursday, December 5, 2013. Known as the “artist to watch” at this year’s Art Basel showcase, Alexandria presented the modern collection at a private high tea.

Accompanied by live jazz performed by the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, guests at the invite-only event were treated to the first look at Alexandria’s collection. The exhibit resided around the bamboo-lined, ground-floor pool at the Riviera South Beach Hotel, where it was placed on display for the following two days for viewing by hotel patrons. Pieces were available for purchase, with a portion of the sale proceeds going to the Lyme Research Alliance—a non-profit organization to raise awareness for Lyme disease (which Hilfiger herself contracted 22 years ago).

Among those in attendance of the exclusive viewing included fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and wife Dee Hilfiger, singer-songwriter Lionel Richie, actress Gina Gershon, singer-songwriter Alex Young, artist Marc Quinn, singer-songwriter Mike deLease, Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, DuJour Magazine’s Jason Binn, as if Magazine’s Tatijana Shoan, South Beach Group’s Alan and Nathan Lieberman, Früzen Ice and Bonito Mezcal CEO Hana Bisceglie and many more.

Alongside a traditional high tea menu of finger sandwiches and a selection of baked novelties, guests sipped on a selection of beverages from sponsors Bonito Mezcal, Früzen Ice, Peroni Beer, Pamplonne, and Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water. Guests were also treated to an exclusive gift from RumbaTime, the Delancey, a unisex watch and the latest release from the popular NYC-based accessory brand, as well as cosmetics from Smashbox and magazines from as if.

The favorite winter meeting place for the international art world, excited art connoisseurs, select media, and the Hilfiger’s closest family and friends gathered around the pieces to admire the self-described “spontaneous” and “emotional” qualities of Alexandria’s work. Known as an emerging star of the modern and contemporary art world, Alexandria was the focus of attention throughout the event as she conversed with and entertained her guests as they strolled from piece to piece.

“I work very intuitively and spontaneously. Painting is a form of meditation and a healing process for me,” says Hilfiger. “Each piece is like a journal entry of my subconscious and emotions. Anything that I paint greatly reflects what I am lacking or what I need in the present moment.”

Hilfiger has participated in several group shows in New York City, including the Chelsea Art Museum and a solo exhibition at New York’s Soho House where she was featured as their artist of the month.
