Mark Miller and Kevin Berlin in front of "Steamed Buns #2" at the opening of "Double Happiness"
A well-heeled, international crowd was on hand last night at Mark Miller’s highly anticipated “re-opening” at 92 Orchard Street. The gallery is still in need of some finishing touches but the visitors attending the opening of Kevin Berlin’s show “Double Happiness” didn’t seem to mind. Berlin’s vivid, large-scale oil paintings arrived directly from a show in Shanghai for their American debut. All photos courtesy of photographer Jenna Rice.

This week the Mark Miller Gallery will be celebrating two big events: the American debut of “Double Happiness,” the striking exhibition from renowned artist Kevin Berlin, and the reopening of the Orchard Street gallery after a two-year transformation. We stopped by last week to talk with Miller and Berlin, as they were rushing to prepare for a preview show for the YoungArts Presidential Scholars.
