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.

Debra Cortese is exhibiting her new series titled, “Seeds of Intention”. Each piece is based on variations of a Flower of Life pattern and represents a positive meditation for the future of humanity in cooperation with nature’s energy.

“The Honey Queen” painting honors one of the smallest and most significant creatures on our planet, the bee. Cortese has dedicated this painting to long-time beekeeper, Mike Price of Bees-n-the-Keys as well as other compassionate beekeepers in Miami and all around the world.

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.

Live Blues with Miami guitarist, Rob Moore – all at VALMAR ART during the monthly Bird Road Art Walk on Saturday, July 21st starting at 7 pm.

Just feeling my energy levels recover after all of the pre-opening preparation work AND another great TRIAD art opening this past Saturday night at VALMAR Art & Framing Gallery in the Bird Road Art District.

Karen Deilke, Pamela Palma and Debra Cortese (that would be me), have been working together to present the summer 2012 TRIAD shows (with a lot of great support and assistance from everyone at VALMAR – Chris, Claire, Michele, Donna, Leo and Doris).

If you’ve already attended TRIAD I and/or TRIAD II, you know there is one more summer exhibition to come. The Goddesses gathered together and arranged the rotation process way back in April and I was delighted to have the ‘featured’ wall during the final exhibition because…. that way I would have the necessary time to create the paintings for a new collection – Seeds of Intention. Of course, there’s a dream and many resources, interests and cosmic connections along the way that inspire artists to create and believe me, this one has been life-changing for me. I’ll have more information to share at the TRIAD III opening and YOU will be participating with the ‘intentions’ as well!

Don’t worry, it will all make sense on July 21st!

In the meantime, here’s a preview of the one of the “seed” paintings.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 21st, 2012 and join us at VALMAR ART, 4150 SW 74th Court, Miami, FL 33155 from 7 to 10 pm. All new art, live music with Blues Guitar Man, Rob Moore and of course, complimentary refreshments.
