    Last night, guests at the Leila Taghinia-Milani Heller Gallery were transported into an oasis of Florida flora and fauna for the opening of artist Elizabeth Thompson's solo exhibition "The Everglades." Thompson, a painter with studios in New York and Florida, studied her subject matter while participating in the National Park's Artists in Residence Program, and likened the Everglades to her own personal Walden Pond.
