The purpose of an art show. Art and looking at art.
As I said on my home page, artists don't have "recitals" like performing arts students enjoy. Thus, on Feb. 28, 2014, my students had their first annual "art recital." While the students showed off their art on the walls, Esme and Dalloway Smith were gracious enough to provide the chamber music. This is Esme on the violin. The photo below is of Dalloway on the cello. They were a delightful addition to a wonderful evening.
The following pictures are of students and family and friends enjoying the art, eating lovely refreshments and having a great evening together. I am so proud of my students and their dedication to learning and growing in their artistic endeavors. I hope they all know of the esteem I have for them and my gratitude for their enduring loyalty and friendship.

My nutty brother, John, photo bombing Judith Nielson and me. By the way. This evening would not have happened without Judith's help hanging the paintings and otherwise helping me spruce up the studio. Thanks so much to her. This is what great frineds are all about.
