Matthew's Galleries "CompeteArt 2011" Reception




It was great to see so many of my artist friends today at the opening reception for competeART 2011 at Matthew's Galleries.
Also, it was a lot of fun to look at the art and guess who did it (the answers were contained in a list, provided as a "catalog"). Everyone gets one vote to determine prizes. Voting continues throughout the exhibit, ending Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at 5:30pm. The show will be exhibited for four weeks total and the awards will be presented Saturday, February 19, 2011, 4 pm.
Matthew's Galleries is donating a percentage of any sales to FISH during the CompeteArt 2011 exhibit.
(One of the best highlights of the reception was seeing Annie Salness!)

What a gorgeous showing, Celeste!! I can only imagine how difficult the judging will actually be!

Your blog of this is exciting. Congrats on the exhibit!

I used to shun those picasa slide shows, but now they lack the logo, and run automatically, and are not intrusive. You have mastered the slide show in a blog. I love them on your blog.
