May 2016 Art Walk & Featured Artist's Reception

RECEPTION NIGHT and ART WALK FRIDAY

Tonight, in spite of the overcast weather all day, we had a good turn out of people attending the Opening Reception for Hope Myers and Don Doubledee. Many folks came in support of all the artists and it was such fun catching up on what so many artists are doing. We had a good number of tourists as well coming into the gallery—and walking throughout the Marina Square Complex for Art walk Friday. Hope and Don had good ads on Facebook too.

FOOD TABLES

We had such an array of wonderful goodies to nibble on throughout the evening. Hope and Don brought some awesome finger foods and our customers and artists loved every bite. We had so many wonderful choices…chocolate goodies, fruit and veggie platters, cookies, cheese and crackers…and so much more. We received so many compliments from so many visitors to the gallery. Thank you both for putting on such an amazing spread!!
