As we were preparing for our Opening Reception night, we installed a new member on the one foot wall in the upper room. Lauren Chow is a photographer working in small formats which fit perfectly on the little wall. And we had Ryan Carroll who was cashier today give us a hand in setting up for the Reception Night as well as Walter Saul!

Featured Artist Jeremy Baker
Featured Artist Jerry de Wilde

We had a good crowd! And Jeremy and Jerry had good coverage in the local papers with Jerry having another in New Times yesterday. So many folks shared just how much they loved the shows and they would be back again.


Jeremy Baker and Jerry de Wilde really put out an amazing food table tonight with all the awesome finger foods and goodies that they served. Jeremy brought all the sweet finger foods, such as fruit slices and veggies and tons of cookies, while Jerry brought all kinds of savory treats that were amazingly delicious for all of us to enjoy. 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. Special thanks Louise, Karen and her sister Julie, Jo, Galen, Gay & Jack, Alice & Don, Don Doubledee, Linda Bench, Carlo, Sarah, Jerry & Mary, Jeremy & his family, Christina, Angeline, Yael & Paul, Beth, Walter & Daphne, Marjorie & Tom, and so many great friends of the Gallery…all the helping hands that helped make the reception a success!
