A packed house, sweet libations, fantastic entertainment and talented, multifaceted women opened the art show party at the Old Schoolhouse Gallery this Friday the 12th. Risa Salsberg, Glenna Foerster and Gem Salsberg exhibited their creations with the whimsical title of “Where the Petals Drift”

The artists works included pen and ink, watercolour, clay, acrylics, photography, installation, flower arranging and collected materials. Outside, petals led you up to the Gallery and inside, the floor was ringed with petals. Ruby and Smith, halfway through the evening, sung and played to the appreciative audience.

Congratulations to Risa, Glenna, and Gem for presenting your creations in a fun social manner and opening the Gallery to the wide variety of patrons that seemed to want to stay and enjoy art and each other.

This show continues Saturday and Sunday, 2 - 6 PM.
