Opening Reception

The opening reception for the Transference group exhibition, featuring artists from Animo Justice and Animo Bunche high schools, was an absolute success! It was a lovely evening of artists, family, friends and colleagues supporting the arts. Thank you Stephanie Torres and Starbucks for hosting this beautiful exhibition of photographic work! Below are highlights of the evening.
