FACADES, Caryn Koffman
Through the art of photography, Caryn attempts to shed light on our complex world by presenting a simplified and restricted view of a subject.  Nothing is moved or removed, only emphasized by zooming in on detail, thus divulging the essence of the images. Caryn states, “I view the world through the lens of the camera, even when I’m not carrying one.”

Exhibit: January 3 – February 1, 2018

DIMENSIONS, Samira Pinto
Samira’s mission as an artist is to bring imagination and curiosity into the energetic realms that are invisible to the human eye.  She questions how everything is tied together in infinite consciousness and aims to spread love through her work.  That love for the world continues to be daily motivation to help create positive change, sharing love one piece at a time.
Reception: Wednesday, March 7, 2018
Exhibit: March 6 – April 6, 2018


WOMEN, Sylviane De Roquebrune
As a multimedia artist, Sylviane has been drawn to a wide range of art practices.  Not entirely satisfied with any one approach, her work is interdisciplinary cross-referencing, fusing and interpreting the established genres.  Her new work is inspired by women with extravagant hair or hair pieces and sometimes masks.
Reception: Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Exhibit: April 10 – May 25, 2018
