Photographs by Anthony Jordon of Average Joe Art Sale and Annette’s 50th Birthday Party at Yo Space on 1/4/15

Photographs taken by Anthony Jordon of Average Joe Art Sale and Annette’s 50th Birthday Party at Yo Space on Sunday, January 4, 2015.  What a wonderful way to celebrate my 50th birthday, surrounded by amazing friends and beautiful art. The Average Joe Art Sales had visiting artists along with their resident artists selling limited edition prints, original art and wonderful merchandise ranging from $5.00 to $500.00, so you can find something no matter your budget.  While you are there, you can visit with the resident artists and see what they are currently working on in their studio. To make it even better they donated 10% of all sales to a non-profit organization , this month it was Life Is Art, Inc.

About YO: “Founded in April 2011, what began as a passion for art, music and Miami has evolved into a force to be reckoned with in the local scene. Bringing together creatives from all walks of life, we strive to shine a light on the elements of Miami culture that should be recognized and celebrated. The company was born on a Facebook page and to this day that’s where content is most frequently updated/uploaded to. The website is a great resource for it’s Event Calendar to keep you up to date on what’s going on in advance, and also for the Blog section where you can read everything from artist interviews to philosophical ramblings.”
