It's that time of the month again — Second Saturday — so check out the latest openings at the Wynwood Art Walk. Luis Gonzalez Palma's sumptuous gilded photographs echo across time. The Guatemalan artist creates baroque portraits of mysterious characters, dressed in opulent, theatrical garb; shanghaied from faraway places; and delivered unexpectedly to tenebrous shores.

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: April 10. Continues through May 1, 2010
