Vanna White impersonators Brenda Boylan and Thomas Kitts showing off the dress!
Wow! What an eventful evening! The Columbia Center for the Arts can really put on a great event. With such help from a great organized crew, a gathering of talented artists, curator Celeste Bergin, and juror Ned Mueller, I am sure this event will grow to something grand in the coming years. Upon entering into the gallery, we were flooded with 250 beautiful paintings from the past week. Much to my surprise, I was awarded a blue ribbon for Best in Marine! I was walking on air the rest of the evening. In my eyes, very painting was a winner.
