Client Muci Clemens is exhibiting oils and pastels in a solo show called "Reflections of Light" at Artists Guild Gallery, Vero Beach, Florida. The gallery is at 1974 14th Ave., Vero Beach, FL. There is an artists reception Friday, March 5th, from 5-7 pm.

Clemens works in still life, landscape and portraiture, and says of her own choice in subject and mood, "There is much pain in the world, so to choose to focus on the positive - on light, color and uplifting themes - is a conscious choice."

I wish her good luck and hope she'll report back from Florida with some pictures of the gallery.
