THEME: “The Light You Bring” is not merely an art exhibit; it’s an invitation. This collection explores the inherent light that resides within each of us, a radiant force waiting to be acknowledged and shared with the world. The featured artists utilize a variety of mediums to capture this essence. Whether through vibrant colors, evocative textures, or thought-provoking forms, each piece invites viewers to contemplate their own inner light. This exhibit is not just about aesthetics; it’s about empowerment. By encountering the diverse expressions of light within the artwork, we are encouraged to recognize and celebrate the unique light we each bring to the world. The space becomes a catalyst for self-discovery, prompting us to consider how we can radiate positivity and illuminate the lives of those around us.

“The Light You Bring” reminds us that we are not passive observers of the world, but active participants. We have the power to illuminate darkness, inspire hope, and create a brighter future, one luminous act at a time. Recent works by local South Florida artists in a variety of media of painting, photography, 3D/sculpture, mixed media, ink drawing, and graphic arts.
