About The Contemporary Artists Forum

The Contemporary Artists Forum (CAFE) is a group of serious artists of diverse backgrounds, who meet to discuss and critique their work in a supportive atmosphere.  CAFE IX, their current exhibition, highlights the work that has evolved from their positive criticism.

 Founded and lead by Mikel Frank, the Contemporary Artists Forum meets Tuesdays at 7:00pm (every other Tuesday beginning September 13th).

Mr. Frank holds a masters degree in painting from Pratt Institute, works at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has been painting and exhibiting for the past 30 years.
