Florida is large and culturally diverse, Miami is said to be the gate way to the Americas and the Caribbean. Kim(서양화가 김명식,김명식 작가,김명식 교수) could be positioned as the gateway story teller reminding us that simple is not always bad.

Please enjoy this talented artist who chose us to expose his housescapes in this our fair city undergoing much change. I feel the exhibition has the vitality that will inspire each of us to look deep within our soul and commit to execute work that has meaning and integrity.
