Reception—December 2011

Our last reception of 2011—the year has flown by! Being the holiday season, we had a very festive reception... and we had some amazing food!

Our featured artist, Shelley Myers arranged with a friend to prepare food for our reception—and what a feast she brought! Wonderful slices of roasted lamb with rosemary, little endive leaf “boats” filled with veggies, shrimp cocktail, cold cuts, beautiful cheeses, cookies, chocolate... it was quite a spectacular display!

Artists Shelley Myers, Laura Dienzo and Bev Brown
admire their preparations.
Artist Alice Cahill explains the intricacies of the contents
of the food platters to an amazed audience.
Even Kris Kringle stopped by with a twinkle
(actually our own Don Doubledee)

November 2011—Set-up Day and the Lunch Bunch

The 30th of every month is “set-up day.” A new “Guest Artist” and a “Featured Artist” bring in their work for the new show. In addition, many artists of Gallery at Marina Square rotate their artwork. Afterwards, everyone gets together for lunch at local restaurant nearby.

The gallery is teeming with activity on set-up day! 

Rodney Meador cheerfully helps get our
featured artist all set up.

Here’s our November “lunch bunch”:
