June 2016 Art Walk & Featured Artists Reception

Hello Everyone—

We had such a good day and night of sales…both Bill Sima and Spanky Anderson sold prints, cards and giclees.  And we had a good crowd of people coming through the Gallery and enjoying our food and meeting artists even though it was Graduation Night for so many parents and students.  But they will be back this weekend!!  And Bill had to ask his daughter Arielle to stand in for him tonight as he had a conference in San Francisco he had to attend.  She did a great job.  And both she and Spanky talked to so many visitors and customers throughout the whole evening.  They both were so wonderful.

Arielle Sima

We had such an array of wonderful goodies to nibble on throughout the evening.  Spanky and Arielle brought some awesome finger foods and our customers and artists loved every bite.  Arielle is a Caterer, and you can imagine all the wonderful treats she brought—avocado humus in tiny glasses, and pulled pork sliders and so many other treats.  Spanky brought an incredible strawberry pie, and meat and cheese trays, pin wheels, and tons of fantastic cookies and other goodies.  We had so many wonderful choices…and we received so many compliments from so many visitors to the gallery.  Thank you both for putting on such an amazing spread!!  



Special thank you’s to all the sweet souls who came to help us set up and take down, and worked at making sales through out the evening—Karen Peterson and Ryan Carroll who worked the day and helped get the reception set up and carry up all the card loads of goodies!  Special thanks to Greg for manning the Sales Desk, Gregory and his amazing Punch, Beth who manned the Food Table tonight, Mike and his amazing music and singing.  Special thanks to Spanky, Arielle Sima, Don, Karen, George, Jo & Neal Swanberg, Sarah, Mark and Galen Allen, and Galen Griswold, Hope, Angeline, Ingrid and Jan and her parents, Jari, Lee Lawson, Sharon Sobraske, and so many other helping hands that helped make the reception a success!  Thank you one and all for supporting our Opening Reception for Spanky and Bill.  It was such a great evening.
