2009 is the year artblog had its sixth birthday and graduated to a WordPress design and a real logo and new maps and listings! Liberta made it to the Miami art fairs this year for the first time.

A nice crowd turns out for ! Gallery’s grand opening I don’t know how to get to 727 Oak Lane with public transportation. But after I saw the exhibit at ! Gallery, I wish I had.
