Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW

Closing reception at Iona show was a lot of fun

During the November 18 closing reception at the Iona Senior Wellness Center, the book authors held everyone rapt as they read their books and also explained how and why they created the books.

Thanks from all of us to  Patricia Dubroof, the gallery director at Iona. She really made this show happen, starting with coming to the Wednesday Studio three years ago to meet with us and talk to each of us about our experiences in art and goals for the show.  Thank you so much, Patricia!

Here are some pics from the book readings last Saturday.

    The show was an excellent experience. So nice to see so many works from our group in one place. Iona staff and Patricia Dubroof went out of their way to make the artists and guests feel welcome. Thanks to all.

    It is my pleasure to honor and exhibit artists at Iona. You all made this a wonderful experience. Hats off to Ellen Cornett for putting all the pieces together. You are all so gifted. Keep up the creativity!!
