Fache Arts + Amy Alonso Gallery is presenting Behind Closed Doors, an exhibition by 80’s icon photographer Jamie Robinson and abstract artist Carla Fache.

Jaime Robinson, captures the images and feelings of those who are behind those closed doors, letting you all in once again to ” The Chelsea Hotel” in the 80’s and one of a kind drag queen portraits from the 90’s, while Carla Fache share her conceptual vision of the eighties through a special art collection inspired in the 80’s paradigms shift.
