21st Century Vintage - Show Opening!

Thanks to EVERYONE who came out for the opening of our 1st Annual Juried Art Competition, 21st Century Vintage. We had SOOO many people come out to help us celebrate. Our headcount totalled over 300, and, jeez, did we have a blast!

Sadly, because it was so busy, I didn't get a chance to take any pictures. Luckily, Sandy Wright, Josh Judkins Mother, and artist in her own right, brought her camera and has graciously allowed me to post a few pictures she took.

If anyone else has pictures, pleasee-mail me at I would greatly appriciate it!
