The Summer Salon art exhibit continues throughout the month of June.

Many of the participating artists will be at the Gallery this Thursday evening, June 11th to celebrate the Opening Reception of artist, Leonard King’s amazing Kinetic Art Exhibition. Leonard is known for his innovative Kinetic Art forms. The new gallery is the first Kinetic Art Gallery to be opened in Florida. The contemporary artwork features abstract art forms that transform the commonplace into images that interact with the movement of the viewer. 

For more information on the L.K. King Gallery call 786-266-1547 or visit www.leonardking.com.
