Let the Good Times Roll!
Let the Good Times Roll! And roll they did -- with 2 opening receptions, brass marching bands, tarot reading, mask-making and more, The March First Friday at the Gallery was filled with fun and festivities.
Last night was the opening reception for the Expressions in Abstract, a state-wide show juried by Kristen Autobee. She must have had a hard time deciding who to award prizes to as there was a lot of striking abstract work to choose from.
On the community wall was an extensive display from the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists. These amazing botanical studies warranted a magnifying glass to study the details. Such beautiful work!
Revelers wore their Mardi Gras beads and masks; kids and adults alike put their crafting skills to the test to decorate their own masks, much to the delight of the little ones.
Off in the corner, Madame Annette told fortunes with her tarot cards, while Donna Sorensen demonstrated her talent with pastels.
And of course gallery-goers were treated to all sorts of goodies including King Cake from our hospitality ladies.
If you were out and about visiting all the other galleries in the 40West Arts District, you were also treated to a New Orleans style brass marching band.
What a fun night to celebrate the arts!
