AWARD CEREMONY AND RECEPTION: 4-9-2008

This was my first art show. There were about 40 people at the opening reception where refreshments were served. This gave me an opportunity to meet and talk with several artists. During the evening I was awarded a cash prize for my painting, 'River Through the Adirondack's'. My family and I had a good time.
