 “THINK SPRING” MEMBERS 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. 

Phone numbers of each artist is listed next to their name.   I encourage you to bring your friends to visit the exhibit now through March 5, 2016, open to the public Monday – Friday 8:30 – 5:00
