The opening reception for Vitrified was held at Ambience on Thursday, October 14. The Bergen News conducted an interview, and published a blurb about the show on October 20:
"Local artist Patricia Benitez opened an art show at Ambience at 22 City Place, Edgewater, on Thursday, oct. 14. The show is part of a continuing series of exhibitions at the Ambience boutique showcasing local women artists. Ms Benitez' show is titled Vitrified, featuring 40 of her original paintings, drawings and digital prints. Ambience co-owners Grace Guido and Dorothy Regan feel that the beauty of Ms. Benitez' work compliments the clothing selection offered by the boutique."
