This exhibit has been a labor of love and the opening reception exceeded all of my expectations. Despite the pouring rain and bad parking the place was full of wonderful people excited about the art and artist. The exhibition will be on view until April 22nd and Art Ark Gallery will be open from 11am-3pm the following dates: March 3rd, 9th, 10th, 23rd, 24th, 30th, 31st and April 7th, 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st For private tours on other days you can contact me directly at – email@example.com
