Second Friday: Hotel Paradox

I will be the featured artist at Artist Reception on the second Friday of December 2019 with live music and light appetizers. With over 20 pieces up for display you can spend time to soak it all in, stay awhile and dine at Solaire; it's the perfect way to appreciate each art piece, which will adorn all the walls from the lobby, halls, restaurant and bar! Come by and say hello! I'll be turning the big 4-0 also, which gives me a wonderful way to celebrate doing what I love with people who I enjoy seeing.
