Each attendee had to opportunity to vote for their favorite painting and photograph. Many a person commented that they could not possibly pick just one image. However , eventually they did manage to select their favorites. There was a tie for first place among the photographs. Cathy's "Lioness" and Mark's "Reticulated Giraffes" tied for first. Among the paintings, Walter's "Maasai Cattle Herders" was judged to be the favorite.
Many thanks to all of the people who helped to make this reception a great success. Special thanks to Benjamin Ofori, our African drummer, for providing entertainment. I would also like to thank Linda Wagner for her great handling of the food and beverages. And finally thanks to Joe Eiers for photographing the event.
Stay tuned for more news on upcoming shows.
