Join us for a fun reception to introduce the paintings produced by Chicago artist and Lakeview East gallery owner, Nancie King Mertz. Enjoy a Cuban Welcome Drink: “Cuba Libre”, and light Cuban appetizers by Cohiba Cuban Cuisine. You’ll hear Cuban music in the background and the courtyard will be open to enjoy your Cuban cigar!
Six days in Cuba resulted in 13 paintings, and more have been added since her return. Nancie was 1 of 100 artists allowed into the country in Feb. to capture Cuba on canvas before it begins to change. She is a Master Signature member of 3 international Pastel organizations and much of her Cuban work will be shipped in mid-April to a gallery in Annapolis,MD for a group exhibit -- so don't miss this historic show!
