SHOW AT CENTENNIAL GALLERY
Opening Day reception on
Saturday, February 16th was a huge success. So happy…NO SNOW until much
later in the evening! We had a great turnout of visitors and a nice
variety of tasty food. We appreciate members who brought wonderful finger
foods. Also, to the craft artists, their beautiful handmade jewelry,
cards and craft items added to the enjoyment of the open house.
A lot of effort went into
hanging over 80 paintings in the show on the previous Saturday, Jan 16th.
In case I missed someone, thank you again to all who helped hang the show and
stayed late so that each piece looked
great in the exhibit and showcased the talented artists of PAA. One
painting was sold at the opening. Hopefully more to come. The Sale
of art work is done by contacting the artist.
