mila | exhibit . bridging the gap

last month i had my first ever gallery exhibit called bridging the gap.  it was a fund raising exhibit to support the missions in the philippines .  we had quite an awesome turn out for the artist's opening and i just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone once again for coming out and supporting the cause despite the pouring rain.  also, i wanted to share some of the photos from that exhibit.  special thanks to hanssie's daughter mackenzie for being the official photographer for the night!  she did such an awesome job.  curtis is already working on her brand and logo lol. 

if you would like to view the work, it's not too late!  the collection is moving to the violethour studio in fullerton.  old town fullerton is starting a new tradition.  they have an artwalk on the first friday of every month and the kick off is this week!  don't miss it and make sure to stop by and check out the bridging the gap exhibit.
