Pictures in My Mind is a collective exhibition of artists from Cuba and Latin America that looks deep into the human psyche and reflects the healing effects of creative expression.
The style, techniques, and materials powerfully echo these artists consciousness and what lies in the depths of their minds.
“The works in this exhibition beckon you to look again, look directly and assume nothing.”Juan Martin, NAEMI Director.
We all have a distinct and fascinating relationship with art whether you are an artist or art enthusiast, you can fully explore, experience and connect this passion locally at the Commenoz Gallery, Key Biscayne.
