PhotographyThe Red Thread of Fate

Vernissage/Art Show for Neon Lilith’s new exhibition of photographs. The event will start at 6pm and the artist will be formally introduced at 6:30pm in a semi-theatrical performance. LP Jerry will spin carefully selected tunes from his extensive vinyl collection, finger foods will be served, and drinks may be purchased. The art show will be followed by Karaoke with Chinadoll, so stick around and enjoy the rest of the evening at Shanghai.

The setting is casual, and though this art party starts at 6pm, feel free to drop by anytime from 6pm to 9pm to say hello and take a look at the new works.

Legend has it, that two people who are destined to meet are connected by an invisible red thread. This spiritual thread may stretch or tangle, but never break. This, and many other legends, myths, and fairly tales are the inspiration behind the surreal photography we invite you all to see.

Artist on Display: Luminita Lou Serbanescu – Original Art

Luminita Lou Serbanescu artist at the shang

After I was invited to show my art at the Shanghai Restaurant and got to know some of the owners of the restaurant, I had the pleasant surprise of discovering that it is not “just a restaurant”, but a mini-community center! Everyone who is someone in Ottawa area, and some from outside, is a friend of the Shanghai! Well known people from all walks of life came in one time or another. So, now it is time that my friends join the crowd and meet me at Shanghai for the vernissage of my China Girl show, on Thursday September 6th, at 7 pm. Great art, good treats and great company! Please come by!
