Setting up for November’s Show

  
Does this look right yet?
Gallery at Marina Square’s featured and guest artists set up their shows for November. This month we are featuring the colorful work of artist Ardella (Jo) Swanberg, and Gallery at Marina Square’s Crafts artists. The 30th of each month is always of fun day of busyness as our exhibiting and guest artists bring in and hang work for the new show, other gallery members add to and rotate their artwork, and new artists hang their work for the first time. Afterwards, the artists get together for lunch at local restaurant nearby.

October 2012 Reception

 
We had our reception for our featured and guest artists, Dorothy Riggs, and the Silk Painters International (SPIN) group on October 12th. Dorothy's work brought so many wonderful comments from so many visitors looking at her work and hearing stories of her travels this year. And the Silk Painters brought in lots of folks who were so fascinated with the whole process of silk painting. Dorothy sold an original and a lovely silk wall hanging was sold, too, as well as work of many other of our artists.  Our food table was amazingly good with lots of finger foods for everyone to enjoy!

Just some of Dorothy Riggs’ wonderful work. 
Looks like somebody’s been eating well!
