A dozen years ago, an artist friend suggested to Donna Guardino, owner of Guardino Gallery on Alberta Street, that she host a Day of the Dead exhibit.
An eons-old holiday celebrated in Latin America, Day of the Dead falls near our Halloween. From the eve of Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, people customarily set up small altars, or "ofrendas," in their homes to honor their deceased loved ones.

Imagine 1,320 paintings each measuring 2 by 4 feet set side by side to create a mural of the 1,320 miles of the California, Oregon and Washington coastline. Imagine the impact of the collective impressions of 1,320 artists, connecting viewers to the grandeur and beauty of the coastline while reminding them to nurture the ocean.

Last year, as a tide of intolerance against immigrants grew and gathered strength, Portland resident Sankar Raman took action to change its course.
He started a poignant website, The Immigrant Story, through which he's hosting two photography exhibitions to counteract xenophobia.
"After the presidential election, rhetoric was leading to changes in policies against immigrants. That rhetoric is also leading to hate speech and hate violence," Raman said. "Those two tracks are becoming the norm."...

Visitors to Palm Beach’s famous Via Mizner off Worth Avenue might not realize its namesake — noted society architect Addison Mizner — designed an office building to house his architectural studio and related businesses.
Nor might they realize that the building today, No. 2 Via Mizner, is home to a three-bedroom apartment, which recently entered the marketplace at just under $10 million.
In 1923, the three-story office-studio building was the first of the complex to be completed on Worth A...
Four years in the making, Malasky Homes’ West Indies-style estate at 488 Island Drive on the northeast tip of Everglades Island is finished and furnished.

The three have concentrated on building and renovating Palm Beach homes over the last 20 years.
