I had a wonderful morning on Saturday at the Deer Path Art League Gallery. I had a surprise visit from some past customers and met some new ones, as well as other artists and students there taking classes in the building.In the photo: Vicki Marasco, Gallery Director (on the right) and Lydia Backer, Gallery Coordinator (on the left) who hung a beautiful show…I also met the lovely lady in orange who complemented every one of my paintings with her ensemble (not to mention she made her beautiful sweater)! 

Also really enjoyed seeing the work of all the *other artists in the show:   *Kristin Gereau/Wearable Fiber, Lezlie Lenz/Painting, Eugenia Meltzer/Ceramics, Cady Watson/Painting, Nio Tavlos/Painting, James Wilbat/Glass

You still have time to see the show, it runs through February 24th: Open Monday through Friday: 10am-4pm. Saturdays by appointment only.
