Our Chapter's "Find Us Here" show was a resounding success. 40 fine art photographs from our membership were displayed at the Luna Star Gallery over a two week period with two different openings during Art Basel. Some were even sold! None of this would have happened without the indefatigable efforts of Dennie Cody who spearheaded and prodded us all to participate in the event. Special kudos go to DK Cody who was right there by his side and Matthew Pace, Paul Morris, my son Dave and myself who joined them in this Herculean effort (Can you say "transform a cafe into a gallery?"). To learn more about the show, click the highlighted copy above.

I think we can all agree that part of what made the show so great was that it brought us all together for the openings and the take-downs. Some of us haven't seen each other in quite a while and it was great to get together once again. Finally, a big shout out goes to Alexis at the Luna Star Cafe. Without her openness, it could never have happened.

Film Meets Art...and the ASMP/SoFla Archive

video

ASMP/SoFla promoted the chapter's Archive at Film Meets Art, a special pre-Art Basel opening with FilMiami.org, the Film and Television division of Miami-Dade County. The December 1st cocktail reception hosted by Jeff Peel, director of Miami-Dade's Mayor's Office of Film and Entertainment, happened at the Seth Jason Beitler Fine Arts gallery in the Wynwood Arts District. The Archive was projected on a wall separating member's work from the monumental sculptures of John Henry. As you can see from the short video by Jorge Parra, the opening attracted many people from the film, TV, and arts communities.
