    As an accomplished national and international artist, Dorotha Grace Lemeh, is best known for her mixed media paintings, though most recently, her painted, and sometimes collaged, digital still & moving imagery. A northern-born southerner, as she (at times) describes herself, Dorotha’s foray into the digital world emerged from her own love of photography, collage, painting, box art assemblage, art installation, plus moving & still imagery.

  • Music

    Victoria Cardona

    South Florida native Victoria Cardona is a guitarist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, one-woman jam band. Her loop performances are a sonic and visual experience that take the audience on a ride through the mind of an improvisationalist.

    With the aide of the Boss RC-300 Loop Pedal Victoria stacks intricate layers of guitar, bass, percussion and vocal harmonies that are complimented by alto vocals that are reminiscent and often compared to Janis Joplin. Victoria’s Cuban roots and obsession with multicultural/ world music genres provide the inspiration for the strong Afro Cuban rhythmic undertone she delivers, in conjunction with a harmonic counterpart that fuses elements of Jazz, Blues, Soul, Reggae, Afro-Caribbean, Rock ’n’ Roll and folk.
