Meeting Imaginary Friends ...

I was really looking forward to checking out Imaginary Friends at 1310 Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, and the event, featuring three solo exhibitions on three floors of the gallery, did not disappoint.

A detail from Pail Caprio's Map of the Mind
Imaginary Friends came about after three artists (Juan Carlos Bravo, Paul Caprio and Ben Morey) from three counties were each offered a floor of the gallery to put on a solo exhibition. After they began communicating by phone and text, they decided they were all in some sense creating imaginary friends. On Saturday night, I met their Imaginary Friends, and brought back some images.

My story about the exhibition ran in Saturday's Sun-Sentinel ... and above is my slide show featuring photographs from the opening. After clicking the arrow in the middle, click in the lower right hand corner of the slide show to expand the pics and then click on "show info" at top right to see the captions that accompany each photo. Or simply view the Flickr set.

The show will run through the closing reception, 7-10 p.m. April 13 at 1310 Gallery, 1310 S.W. Second Court, Fort Lauderdale.
