What: ‘Don’t Quit Your Day Job’ is a exhibition of photographs by gallery owners. The exhibition is a lighthearted indulgence in the fantasy of ‘what might have been’ for these lovers of photography had they not decided to pursue their day jobs. ‘Don’t Quit Your Day Job’ is equally a celebration of the gallery owners’ careers and contributions to contemporary art and photography, highlighting the origins in creating photography and art that led them to own galleries in the first place.
*The proceeds from sales will be donated to Lotus House Women’s Shelter, a quiet enclave in the heart of one of Miami’s poorest neighborhoods.
