Mingo Gallery Opening – December 17, 2010

After much patience and anticipation, I am very happy to report that last night’s opening at the Mingo Gallery, was by far, the most successful event of the year.  At times, there were almost 200 people in the room, and the energy and enthusiasm were magic.

Expose Yourself To Art
