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!

Setup Day for October 2012 Show

Featured artist Dorothy Riggs

her mixed multi media work.
Gallery at Marina Square’s featured and guest artists have their shows all set up. This month we have the wonderful work of featured artist Dorothy Riggs (New Mixed Media), and guest artists: the SPIN Group (“Sensational Silks”).

On the 30th of each month our exhibiting and guest artists bring in and hang their work for the new show. Other gallery members also come in to rotate their artwork, and new artists hang their work for the first time. Afterwards, the artists get together for lunch at local restaurant nearby.
The SPIN group’s wall looks great!

Here are pictures of setup day for October’s show...
