|Entrance to Bay Street Cafe'. My latest painting greets you!|
|Just inside, canvases by Rica and Trina, Ikecoo's sculpture, Yukie's pottery and Yuuco's printed bags.|
|Rica chats with two guests who are about to take up oil painting.|
|Many people were fascinated by the Mail Art Suitcase ~ so much to discover in there!|
|Where better to enjoy a chai tea than surrounded by art and music?|
|Speaking of music, Walter played for us most of the evening ~ such a treat!|
|The murals at Bay St. are lovely & complimented my canvas and Shingo's framed works.|
|Three of Chiori's new acrylics: Morning, Daytime and Night.|
|Rica's print went well with Ikecoo's Animal Kingdom illustrations.|
|Ben was inspired to sit down and start drawing. He gathered a crowd; Rica and I were thrilled to have live art at our show!|
|Kanae's triptych got a lot of attention. This quiet wall really displayed the detail of her work.|
|Anyone like sweets? Or savories?|
|As promised, Sayid made his now famous coffee art too!|
|One young artist brought us her portfolio to review. She's only 6 years old but very dedicated to art.|
|We hung one of her drawings in the show and took a picture together, posed like the lady she drew. Her mom has promised to send me photos of her new artworks now and then! :)|
There actually ended up being three additional drawings from young artists added to our show, which was a delightful highlight of the night as they were so proud to participate and become a part of the "magic". We received the sweetest notes and drawings in the guest book describing the night as "magical"!
I am so thankful to everyone that came to support us, and everyone that helped to make this happen! All the artists, all the Bay St. staff, Davin (our coordinator), our families and all the musicians, artists, photographers and other art lovers that joined us ~ it was a splendid evening! Thank you!
Our art will be on display for three weeks, so if you missed out on Opening Night there's still time to enjoy!
