CONTINUUM PB Arts 2020 VIP Opening Night

Thursday, January 23, 2020   7:30 – 10:00 PM 

Featuring: CriStyle Renae 

 

The amazing CriStyle Renae will be performing on opening night and promises to bring the house down. If you were lucky to see CriStyle  this past summer at the Sunset Lounge, she opened up & did background vocal for Angie Stone. However, CriStyle’s performances literally gave the crowd goosebumps. She delivered, and then some. An act you don’t want to miss!

Paul was also a protégé of the great Henry Geldzahler and in the early 90’s traveled with him internationally as a Cultural Attaché for the U.S. Information Agency. Upon meeting and marrying his artist wife Irina in 2001, he set down roots and began regular exhibitions. The gallery is known for showing a balance of 20th Century masters and young and emerging talent.
