Reception at the Northwest Hills Gallery

Last Sunday, November 9, the Austin Pastel Society had the opening reception for the show at the Northwest Hills United Methodist Church Gallery. The show will be up until December 1. You can see the art when the church office is open, you can call for times. (512-346-0190) More info here. The reception was from 12:15 p.m. through 1:30 p.m. It was a very nice opening with a nice group of artists and visitors in attendance. It was well supported by the Church Gallery committee and members.

Some of the artists in attendance.

Entry in the show was open to Austin Pastel Society artists and our juror was Jeri Salter. Jeri is a member of the APS and past president of the Central Texas Pastel Society.

Robin, sorry I don't have more photos, maybe Debra's niece will share some of hers with us. Thanks.

It was a very nice reception, Jo, and congratulations on your award!

Jo Castillo said...

Thank you, Regina. Like Susan says, awards are nice and when they come with a little $ prize, that is fun, too. I was very surprised. There was beautiful work there this time, yours included. :)
