Annmarie Garden After Hours Reception Friday May 25th

had a colorful bird photo accepted into the Annmarie Garden "Of a Feather, Birds in Art" Exhibit.  The macaw photo titled "Pedicure", will be on display and for sale all summer in the main gallery. 

This Friday, May 25th, I hope you will consider attending the after hours reception with me and many other artists from 5-8 pm.  The receptions are always very nice with light refreshments and live music.  They will also announce the winning entries.
