Michael Banzhaf Gallery Opening Is Feb. 5

For the first time in the six years of Michael Banzhaf Gallery, Banzhaf will have an opening for his own work along with artist Monica Rios on Friday, February 5, at 6 p.m.

A frequent visitor to the island, Rios has created a body of St. John themed paintings of seascapes and still life that include cats in each image. The gallery will donate 10 percent of sales from Rios’ work to the St John Animal Care Center.

Rios is a self-taught painter from Florida. Her work is inspired by dreams and tropical scenery. Rios’ work has been published on the cover of the Berkeley Psychic Reader and the internationally syndicated Apalachee Review.
