The theme this year was Art in Motion, and the stage was set with breezy wirligigs.
There were also the wonderful floral arrangements everywhere you looked.


We had good attendance in spite of the bad weather as you can see in this photo.

But there was still room to ponder your favorite painting.

The Mini Art Sale did a brisk business.

And, of course, Lucinda provided the music at the reception on Friday evening.
