Janet - SchoolHouse Gallery
Another Season is over......and by any measure it was our most successful one. A general, overall thank you to all those dedicated volunteers who put in the time and effort to keep our community Gallery open and thriving.

Very Special Thanks to:

All those artists who put on such great shows for us to attend: Amy Robertson, Ayami Stryck, Iris Steigemann, Naomi Cairns, Krista Smith and the Childrens Forest young artists, Kristen Scholfield-Sweet, Terri Storey, Judith Williams, Susan John.

The group who did all the work so there would be another great Member's Show: Denise Gibbons, Kathleen Horne, Lynn Marttila, Lynne Barker, Meinsje Vlaming. And the 32 talented artists who participated in this year's show.

The Board who keeps the Gallery open and vital, year after year: Carina Verhoeve, Denise Gibbons, Janet Turpin, Kristen Schofield-Sweet, Lynn Marttila, Lynne Barker, Meinsje Vlaming.

Richard Trueman for photographing each show and penning wonderful reviews for Tideline and Facebook

Carol and Richard Trueman for hosting the Galley every Friday Opening Night throughout the summer.

Doug Brown for supplying special libations for our Friday Openings all season long.

Kathleen Horne for ably managing our Facebook page and special events postings.

Doug Hamel for repairing our sign before the season opened. It's a good as new. And to Chris Napper for supplying materials needed for the repair.

Bill Dougan for our "new to us" picnic table and Chris and Beth Napper for repairing the old one...we definitely needed two on those hot summer evenings.

And, of course, our very supportive Cortes Community who came out to enjoy local and very professional art in our lovely Gallery and to visit with the artists and each other.......We wouldn't keep going without your support.
