Folks who came to the Creative Alliance at the Patterson got a two-fer - the opening of "Wonderland," an exhibition of photographs taken by J.M.Giordano, followed by an onstage preview of Creative Alliance's big shindig, the Marquee Ball. This year, the ball's theme is "Kiss Me Deadly." So, guests were treated to a torch singer and actors performing vignettes from famed film noir movies. Alessandra Torres, artist/sculpture instructor at Maryland Institute College of Art (far left) accepts a drink from J.M. Giordano, artist/photographer (far right). Jim Lucio, life coach (center left), and Heather Keating, Baltimore-based photographer/graphic designer (center right) round out the happy group.
