FACES OF CHINA
Miami-based professional photographer Tom Salyer showcases an exhibit of his work documenting his annual visits to China in "Faces of China." The exhibit features 32 works depicting his experiences with both ancient and contemporary China during an annual visit to the country between 2004 and October 2011. The work resembles more a casual observation of human nature than as an accentuation of differences between cultures. 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Mon-Fri. Exhibit through Jan. 21. ACND Gallery of Art at Archbishop Curley Notre Dame 6 to 12 Prep, 4949 NE Second Ave., Miami. Details: (305) 751-8367 ext. 28 or email@example.com or www.acnd.net.
