Reclaimed Reception

This past Thursday was our reception for our exhibition Reclaimed; what a wonderful & vibrant night! We had an amazing turn out, including many of the artists in the show - one artist travelled all the way from Mexico! Our jurors for this exhibition, Steven and Linda Krensky, gave a lovely talk - emphasizing the importance of what all of these artist do & the positive impact art and galleries like ours has on our society.
