Miriam Gomberg was born in Encino, California After moving to Reno, Nevada, she attended Earl Wooster High School, graduating in 1985.
Miriam developed a deep appreciation for art fashion and design having been surrounded by fine objects as her parents owned a collectibles store.
in 1991, Miriam opened her own boutique, Formals Bridal, in Reno. Her love of fashion design coupled with her outstanding entrepreneurial spirit, proved to be a perfect combination for success. Miriam built Formals Bridal into one of the largest local bridal stores in Northern Nevada. About the same time, fulfilled a lifelong goal by completing an undergraduate degree in Health Ecology at the University of Nevada Reno in 2008; going on to complete her MBA at UNR in 2011.
Having always been artistic, Miriam transitioned from simple appreciation to active creation when trying to fill an empty wall in her home. Not quite finding what she wanted, a natural solution was to experiment with her own art by up-cycling and reusing found objects, inserting them onto canvas. Ultimately this led to producing more paintings for family and friends where she developed her unique Expressionist style. She loved the idea of applying similar techniques to vintage furniture and frames to showcase design. Art by Mimi G was born.
Light refreshments will be served. Carson City Art Gallery is located on the NW corner of S Curry & 2nd Streets.
