Exhibitions, fundraiser mark the week in South Florida’s art world

▪ Torrid Flora, an exhibition exploring the tropics through artworks by Jennifer Basile, Xavier Cortada, Sarah Henderson, Deborah Mitchell and Tina Salvesen, opens April 12 with a special reception from noon to 6 p.m. in the Hibiscus Room at Pinecrest Gardens, 11000 S. Red Rd., Miami. Curator Ananda DeMello of Art Habit channels Aristotle and his study of climate zones, an effort in which he rated weather conditions around the world from frigid to temperate to torrid, to express a need for local preservation efforts. Miami is close to the philosopher’s Torrid Zone, an area labeled as uninhabitable. See or contact
