October 2015 Reception Night


Tonight we had so many people attending the Opening Reception for Ardella and our Icon Group.  Wow!  It was amazing. So many folks came in support of all the artists…lots of locals from Morro Bay and Los Osos and all around the Central Coast. We had such a super FUN night.  We had lots of tourists as well coming into the gallery to participate in the evening’s event and get away from the heat of the valley—and walk throughout the Marina Square Complex.  Of course, it was super hot in Morro Bay today, and the weather was a huge conversation starter!!  Deb Festa took charge of the Iconographers, helping and guiding and introducing them to all of our members who were there.  She really did an amazing job organizing the food with her group too.  Thanks Deb!!  And Ardella had so many wonderful compliments on her beautiful works on paper!  The whole evening was full of artists and art lovers!


We had such an array of wonderful goodies to nibble on throughout the evening.  Ardella and the Icon Group brought some awesome finger foods and our customers loved every bite.  As you can see from the photos, we had so many wonderful choices…our artists brought dips and so many gourmet delights and veggies and a wonderful finger food trays and dips.  We received so many compliments from so many visitors to the gallery.  Thank you all for putting on such an amazing spread!!  Ardella brought her killer cookies and there were none left!!


And thank you so much to all the sweet souls who came to help us set up and take down, and worked at making sales through out the evening—Susan Wood and Linda Loebs who worked the day!  Special thanks to Greg for manning the Sales Desk, Gregory and his amazing Punch, Don, Galen, Beth who manned the Food Table tonight and helped clean up with Neal, Alice & Don, Carlo, Mike and his amazing music, Jillian Parks, Ingrid, Karen, George, Susan, Melanie, Sarah, Lois & Chuck, Spanky who helped clean up and took out all the trash at the end of the evening with Beth, Deb Festa and her family, and so many other helping hands that helped make the reception a success!  ...Thank you one and all.  It was such a great evening.
