Ginny and I had a great party after we took down the show at the Cultural Center in the loop. Our exhibit was there at the same time as the Art Expo at Navy Pier so alot more people were in the city for that. Our party and distribution was at a wonderful restaurant called The Wishbone and the owners liked the show so much they wanted to hang it indefinitely. But we convinced them otherwise. We gave them first choice and they picked Alice and Wonderland and the calligraphy from Japan. (I thought you artists would like to know). Then each person got to pick their favorite. Everyone was quite pleased with their acquisition as these photos indicate.

Ginny and I were kind of sad that it was all over.

We already have some ideas about the next show. Thanks to all artists for their contribution to a very exciting idea.
