Below are some pictures from the event. As you can see there was quite a crowd. I had the opportunity to talk with other artists, and I introduced myself to Diane Aeschliman. Diane is one of the elected Lyme Gallery artists. Jennifer and I were fond of one of the landscape paintings by Diane that was in the exhibit.
