Scenes from the Opening Reception

Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts

I thought I would share some of the photos from the opening reception on Friday night at the Palmer Lake Artist Group's Fine Art Show at Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts.

As I have mentioned, I do like this venue. The turn out for the opening receptions continues to be good.

The Krucoff Clan fared well as each of us won ribbons for our works. Dan won first place in the Photography category.

Mary received second place for her watercolor.

I received a second place for my wire wrapped glass jewelry.

And I also had the good fortune of receiving 3rd place for one of my glass bowls, Summer Days.

Suzanne Jenne, a gifted artist, was the MC for the silent auction. I'm happy that I won one of the items in the auction. The proceeds from the auction go toward the scholarship fund to help art students from the area go on to pursue their studies in college.

Here are a few more shots of the variety of work at this show.

And here are a few of the Krucoffs. You will notice a photo of Dan in front of his work is noticeably absent....hmmmmmm he does like being the photographer!

Mary and her painting.

Me with my jewelry.

A girl and her glass..... bowl that is, with ... a glass of wine!

Oh yes, those are 'adult beverages' that Mary & I have. What's an opening reception without a little wine or beer?

We had a fun evening. Hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of the surroundings.

Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.

Hi Kristin! Thanks so much. And the wine they served was really good too. :)

Karen said...

Congrats to the whole family! How funny that you all ended up winning something! I have to say though that the bowl I think should have fared even better...I love that one.
Of course you deserve a glass (or more!) of wine! :)

Kathleen Krucoff said...

Thanks so much Karen! Yes, I'd take a bottle of the wine they served...a very nice Merlot. The ribbons were great too.
