Reception Night and Art Walk for May 2017


Craig’s and Yael’s shows have brought in the customers this month. All the beautiful colors and textures of Yael’s photography and incredible renderings of Craig’s paintings heralded in the month of May. And the customers have loved all the wonderful choices that their shows have offered them—framed pieces, greeting cards, folios of all sizes, bookmarks, and much more. Look how great our Featured Artists looked this evening as they got ready to meet and greet the customers.

And with all the activities planned in Morro Bay this month, MOTHER’S DAY on Sunday, the AMGEN TOUR on Monday and Tuesday (remember parking will be challenging on those days so come to the Gallery by 9:30am at the latest), MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND from the 27th-29th (with Art in the Park as well)—we have lots to look forward to with tourists and locals coming to visit. So many happy faces tonight. We really had so much fun.


Craig Harrill and his family, and Yael Korin and her family, really put out an amazing food table tonight with all the awesome finger foods and goodies that they served. Jari de Ham covered for Beth who was sick tonight and took over Hostessing the Food Table. Gregory McIntosh created another fabulous punch for us all. Our customers and artists loved it all!! We had so many wonderful choices…and we received so many compliments from so many visitors to the gallery. Thank you all for putting out such an amazing refreshment table!!

I appreciate all the sweet souls who came to help us set up and take down tonight... and worked at making sales throughout the evening—Jack McNeal, Jeremy Baker and Linda Loebs worked the day and helped Greg Siragusa get the reception set up and helped clean and so all kinds of jobs. A special thanks to Greg for manning the Sales Desk during the evening, Gregory and his amazing Punch, and Jari who manned the Food Tables and with Spanky’s help, cleaned up the Gallery tonight.

Special thanks Jack, Karen, Spanky, Galen, Jari, Linda Hill, Jeremy, Linda Bench & Ted, Susan Wood, Yael & Paul, Craig and his wonderful family, Walter & Daphne, Marjorie Zlotowitz & her other half, Melanie, and so many dear art-loving friends of the Gallery whose helping hands and big hearts helped make the reception a success! Thank you one and all for supporting our Opening Reception for our wonderful artists.
