Houston, we have liftoff!
By suppertime last Friday all the ArtWalk artists had picked up their materials. The signboards are out on display, the brochures are being distributed and the show has begun.
Many thanks to ArtWalk coordinator Gayle Kohut, her sidekick (and former coordinator) Carroll Smith and all the artists who worked so hard to get ready for this event. It takes a huge effort to ensure the success of this summer-long celebration of the arts.
Once the dust settled many of us enjoyed a relaxing evening at the Olds (Mountainview) Museum hosted by the Uptowne Olds Group. Munchies, cool drinks, good company and art — a perfect gathering.
A special thank you to our hostesses for the evening — Donna Erdman (Chairperson of the Olds Historical Society), Debbie Ohlhausen (owner of Different Strokes and a member of the Uptowne Olds Group) and Michelle Jorgensen (Administrative Assistant at the Mountain View Museum).
P.S. Here’s some great news — several ArtWalk artists have already sold pieces!
