Opening Night Success

Friday's opening was a huge success and a total blast! Artists mingled with art enthusiasts, enjoyed some wine and a delicious bite from Deli Plaza, the shop owned by artist Mohamed Mansour, which donated trays of yummy treats for the event.

TWO pieces of work sold Friday night - a papier-mache head made by Yodi and a small cow painting by the late Greg Weaver.

On Saturday morning, a quick look at the sign-in book showed 136 people registered Friday night. And there were more people there than that...those are just the ones who chose to sign in!

Here are some images from Opening Night. These photos were taken right before the doors opened, so there are unfortunately no crowd shots. Enjoy! And don't forget, the "Momentum" continues Monday through Friday from 11-2 and closes with a potluck artist party (open to the public) on Saturday from 5-9 pm. Please come and support our local artists!

I have to confess, I had such a good time chatting and chowing and drinking that I didn't spend enough time admiring the art! We'll go back tomorrow - everything looked amazing.

Sorry that I did not attend the opening reception but I plan on veiwing the exhibit possibly next week.
Is there a list of the names of the local and regional artists that participated in this exhibit?

Best Wishes!

I just posted some pictures of the crowd on the blog. Funny, I took pictures of the scene, and forgot to take some of the art. We should definitely work together.
