Successful show!

Another successful weekend show is over and we are so grateful for the reprieve from the terrible weather predicted. Though it was cold, we were warm inside and the visitors appreciated the warm respite while visiting our displays.

One weekend show down, and another to come this coming weekend....December 15 and 16th. Due to holiday time crunches, the number of ArtChix participating will be five; but there will be room for expanded displays so stop by to see everything we will be sharing.

The artists participating in this show will be: Ruth Malins, Sharon King, Ann Stubenrauch, Norma Miller and Susan Roper.

Check out our new feature!

On the sidebar to the left, you will see The Faces of ArtChix, a new section for our blog. When you click on the link in this section, it will take you to a slideshow of our individual ArtChix members. The photos will be replaced with newer, closer focus ones so our faces will be more visible. What do you think? Eventually, the sidebar will include a link to a slideshow of our combined works, but this Blog Mistress will have to figure out how to label each painting with the artist's name, etc.
