A great big thank you to all those of you who ventured into the gallery this weekend to grab a piece of of Original Halloween Art and fun.
The Town of Sanford really gets into the Holiday spirit as seen in these pics of some of their window displays including the local newspaper.
Take a peek in the lower left corner and catch one of Joanna Parkers creations.
Jeanine Taylor of Gallery on First put together a great group of Artists this year.
There was Chris Klingler of Designs by CK with his whimsical and elaborate drawings and prints; you can't appreciate the detail until you see them in person.
The Lovely Dianne Waldron of Sew Primitives and her oh-so infectious creations.
A Sweetheart of a Gal, Deb George and her humorous and spooky characters.
The Charming Sara Whitmore and her fantastic mixed media art.
Not even a broken leg could keep an old hand like Melissa Menzer away form a second show, I have a feeling that cast around her leg will turn into some of her wonderful creations.
And of course there was me and my dog and pony show.
It was great fun getting to know all the new artists as we set up on Friday.
The Fun started that evening with a great Champagne reception for dedicated collectors and a raffle. Jeanine put on a spread that would make Martha Stewart proud.
All black and orange foods. Yummy!!
Folks were already in the Halloween spirit wearing their creepiest finery for the event.
It was an intimate event that let artists and collectors get to know each other. I certainly enjoyed it. It allowed everyone to wind down and relax before the big day.
Me and a visiting Glamorous Ghoul!
The doors opened and the FUN began. The room soon filled with familiar faces from last year, the night before and excited new ones. I can't thank everyone enough for the warm welcome and encouraging words that were offered to us.
As the day wore on and the tables were cleared by collectors, we all reluctantly tore down our little worlds knowing that goodbyes were at hand.
There were old freindships renewed and new ones forged between artists and collectors.
Now I'm back for a couple of days before heading to the next great event, the First Annual SpookyTime Jingles Soiree this Saturday the 16th with a preview cocktail on the Friday 15th.
