I wanted share a few opening night pics taken on May 1, 2015 at the Borders Gallery in Miami, Florida. Note: Juan Martin Executive Director of NAEMI host this annual show each year during the month of May (National Mental Health Awareness Month). The Borders Gallery in Miami exhibited the artwork including 4 paintings of my own. This is the 2nd year I have been invited to exhibit my work at this International Show and I'm grateful to Mr. Martin for his support and encouragement. Opening night for me was fun, wine & cheese and a variety of refreshments, beautiful women, good friends and interesting conversations with collectors and patrons of the arts. The amazing variety of creative work by the other artist on exhibit was truly over the top. The exhibit is ongoing from May 1st through June 3rd 2015. So if your in the Miami area during this time, take time out to visit the gallery, you will be glad you did. Here are just a few pictures from the opening night Enjoy!
