Gallery Walk | Mar 1

“Family Time” is an exhibit of works by Christopher, Stephanie, and Jimmy Miracle.  The Miracle trio is presented as an underwater video installation, celebrating life through creative imagination, viewed in conversation through the meticulous lens of Jimmy’s family portrait drawings, paintings, and sculptures.  A walrus drawing by the natural talent of a child, a terra cotta portrait of a son by his father,  and portrait drawings of the pregnant Stephanie are a few pieces from this eclectic selection of works which display the Miracle family alive, creating, and still smiling underwater.
