- Well-known artist Carol Fryd
was feted at the opening of her one person show "Miami Salsa," at the Galeria Del Museo de la Casas Reales in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on March 21, 2012.
The success of the show prompted Santo Domingo's Museo del Arte Moderno to offer her a one woman show next year. Family and friends gathered to show their support and stayed at the luxurious Hosta Nicolas De Ovando hotel in the Colonial city.
Fryd was a founding member of Miami's women's coop gallery, The Continuum, in the 1960s, which gave a voice to serious women artists, and brought such New York art world luminaries as John Chamberlain
, Hans Hoffman
student James Billmyer
and gallery owner Betty Parsons
to Miami. Other one woman shows where Fryd has exhibited include Hamptonite Isabel Barnard Biderman's
Madison Avenue eponymous gallery in the 1990s.
