When we opened Radiance, almost exactly a year ago, our friend, Mimi Shapiro was our first featured artist. We were deeply honored by her support for our new venture, and are thrilled to have her back for a new show just in time for our first anniversary! She hung them yesterday, and one of them has already sold! You will want to see this wonderful show!
Mirror, Mirror ... Mirrors reflect ...Reflections on Life ...
This is a beautiful new collection. Mimi quotes Erica Jong: It is the city of mirrors, the city of mirages, at once solid and liquid, at once air and stone.

Showing at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, through January, 2008, with artist receptions on First Fridays 12/7/07 & 1/4/08 from 5 until 8pm. These wonderful mirror collages are very affordable, too, at only $40 apiece. Wow, original art at affordable prices! Who would have guessed?
