Participating artists include Erika Ehrman, Formento & Formento, Jay Martin, Vikki Michalios, Robert Obier, Jason Piken, Carmine Santaniello and Denny Theocharakis, who are among the 50 indy artists slated to showcase work. Tickets are $55 for the VIP Opening Reception, $35 for the Art Lovers Networking Brunch, $20 for general admission and just $10 for students/seniors.
