Mixing it up at Milan's

Ft. WorthThe Milan Gallery here is breaking the stereotype that art galleries are stuffy, snooty places for the rich and cantankerous. Okay, one out of three, maybe, but no one snooty or cantankerous here last night as our Metroplex affiliate, BizRadio 1360, hosted a viewing and presentation for Ft. Worth Fans.

FOB is now the officially-designated acronym for “Friends of BizRadio;” or FOBR, if you must.

The Milan’s have operated their gallery for years in Ft. Worth, and later this Spring, will re-assemble their eclectic collection of paintings and sculpture in a newly renovated space. Last night’s suarez was well-attended by a diverse crowd: a private jet broker, a national publisher, a political analyst…and painters.

Cynthia Bryant has been exhibiting her work since she was 15. Her Texas-themed landscapes are rich with hill country vistas, and storm clouds as only the weather can produce over the Lone Star state, and she charmed the guests with her genteel grace.

Henrietta Milan is the matriarch of the gallery, preparing for a major art show in Florida this Spring. She nearly had her exhibit planned for that project, until she remembered this photo.

Rome Milan produced a painting on the spot during the event last night. He changed hats every 15-minutes.
Must be an artist thang.
He works fast, too!

Kudos and thanks to the catering staff at Ferre Restaurant in Ft. Worth, under the able direction of Ashly Yoder…and our special recognition of ShaBang! Exhibits for their production of our new display piece!
