Archive: AQ/Art Quake Exhibit Opening Reception

Thank you to all who attended the AQ/Art Quake Exhibit Opening Reception at Five Myles Gallery last Friday!  AQ/Art Quake is a group of 10 internationally known artists who have contributed to a portfolio of original contemporary prints available for collection.  All proceeds from the portfolio sales benefit artists of KOLAJ.

In attendance from KOLAJ that evening, was Co-Director Anderson Ambroise, who spoke to guests about this current project.  Other participating artists such as Vladimir Cybil Charlier and Rejin Leys were in attendance that evening.  Guests enjoyed delicious Haitian treats, an intimate ambiance, and a special performance by poet and performance artist Gabrielle Civil.  Gabrielle’s piece was absolutely captivating and opened up room for discussion.  You can watch her performance here on Youtube.

Even though the Opening Reception was Haiti Cultural Exchange’s last event of the year, it was just the beginning of a one-month art installation and event series.  The installation will be on display until January 15th at Five Myles!  Please visit the AQ/ Art Quake Program page to get more information about the AQ/ Art Quake events taking place in January 2012!
