Taking down the art show

On Tuesday afternoon, the Group of Several took down our 2015 show, which we had called "Something to Crow About" in honour of all our paintings of Max's rooster. Over the week we had 50 attendees at the Thursday night opening, and another 120 visitors during the week. Twelve works were sold for a total of $1300. Our most successful show ever.
After all the paintings were down we enjoyed a glass of wine and some nibbles in the glorious sunshine on the front porch of the Arts Centre.
