The 3rd and final Opening Reception for the TRIAD ART Exhibition with Debra Cortese, Karen Deilke and Pamela Palma is on Saturday, July 21st at VALMAR ART, 4150 SW 74th CT (in the Bird Road Art District), Miami, FL 33155.

Coconut Grove artist (and Founder of the Coconut Grove Drum Circle), Karen Deilke is exhibiting her vibrant and expressive “Hot Tropics” paintings.
Miami Beach artist, Pamela Palma is exhibiting her evocative fiber art works that incorporate uncommon materials including shredded one-hundred dollar bills, the delicious color interactions of hand dyed yarns, and textural elements.

Hard to believe it’s almost time to hang the final exhibition of our TRIAD shows! I was fortunate to draw the short straw when Karen Deilke, Pamela Palma and I first met to discuss the logistics of hanging and scheduling our run of three artists, and three openings during the months of May, June, and July*.
I say I was fortunate to draw the short straw for several reasons which have developed throughout the process. The first and most exciting to me was the fact that I now had 2 extra months to create the new series that had already been showing up in sketches throughout the beginning of the year. I thought this was reason enough, but as it turns out, rotating walls for each new opening challenged each of us to step further outside of our comfort zone – creating new work, mixing up the exhibits each month and learning how beneficial it is to share our ideas and communicate our needs.
As artists, we are often very accustomed to working independently and making or avoiding decisions based on our current state of affairs. Working as a team requires cooperation, and communication in order to equitably satisfy everyone. Our communication skills were fine tuned as we worked through the details of times, dates, marketing materials, and meetings. I’d say we now have a better understanding of the processes involved in this type of a cooperative exhibit. And I’d also say there is always more to learn 😉
Please join us on Saturday, July 21st for the opening reception of TRIAD III. I’ll be showing my new Seeds of Intention artworks, Karen Deilke has new work in her Hot Tropics series, and Pamela Palma will have even more mysterious goddess weavings on display. Of course there will be wine and finger foods and LIVE MUSIC – by my friend, blues legend, Rob (Wild Boar) Moore. You can hear Rob’s music at www.robmoore-guitar.com.
TRIAD 3 Opening Reception starts at 7:00 pm and runs until 10:0 pm. There will also be a drawing to win a very special Seed of Intention painting. You don’t have to be present to win, but you do have to attend and fill out an entry so we can contact you to pickup your art prize! 😉
