Even Literature – Annual Visual Arts Exhibit
Hanging and Receiving (4-2-2008) – Annual Visual Arts Exhibit
I volunteered to help hang the exhibit. In addition, my family, wife, and children also assisted with the hanging process. During the hanging, I met several artists I would get to know better in the coming years.
Award Ceremony and Reception (4-9-2008) – Annual Visual Arts Exhibit
With great excitement and anticipation, we arrived early for the award ceremony and reception. There were about 40 people in attendance. As a result, I met and talked with many people, including some artists in the exhibit. During the evening, I received an award and cash prize for my painting, “River Through the Adirondacks.” My family and I had a good time at the 2008 Annual Visual Arts Exhibit by Cheshire Art League.
