ABOUT ON THE EDGE OF LIGHT promises to be a landmark exhibition - a fusion of cutting edge contemporary art uniting interior and exterior space to bend, reflect and amplify light in all its manifestations.
This exhibition will feature five artists and a streetscape incorporating the trees along NE 2nd Avenue with the participation of students of the Design and Architecture Senior High School in Miami coordinated by their sculpture professor Hans Evers.
The theme of light is embodied in the word "Maor." In Kabbalistic philosophy the Maor is the source of light and the place to which all light gravitates. The mission of the gallery is to become a source of light and a conduit for Jewish spiritual exploration and discovery.
