"Seen/Unseen" Scene

Robin DuBrin, Douglas Howe, Ron & Ann Morford
Last evening, there was a great ZINO Society social networking event hosted by ZINO Society member and 2009 PONCHO Artist of the Year, Judith Kindler.  The event was held in her studio for a preview of her work titled "Seen/Unseen"before it ships for a major show in Los Angeles later this month.
Kindler's studios are a treat for the senses! Everyone enjoyed seeing her new works and hearing the background psychology on what Judith is trying to tell the viewer with this body of her work.  There was much to see including works that are in progress and numerous studios devoted to the individual medias in which she works. It was a real behind the scenes unique libation, food and art experience.
Judith Kindler and husband, Kyle Johnson (also a ZINO Society member) are partners in William Ryan Distributors whose primary product line is the premium Aha Toro tequila line, so there was a tequila tasting comparing several premium levels of tequila with one another led by their business partner and tequila guru, Sang ChaeSang who attended with his wife, Connie, admitted that he decided to go "into" the tequila business when people told him that it was impossible for a Korean-American to be successful in selling tequila.  He decided to prove them wrong and was proud to announce to us last evening that in their third year of operation, Aha Toro has become a profitable business.

For non-tequila drinkers, wine was also served by ZINO Society Wine Professional MemberScott Fivash of Fivash Cellars. Of course, a gourmet taco bar and traditional Mexican appetizers was the featured food for this casual evening.  A big hit was the small grilled sweet pepper poppers.
