A Spirited Thank You

Now that I’m catching my breath I would like to send out a quick but heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in this years Spirits in Sanford, Wow! So much fun was had. Thank you to the wonderful collectors, faithful and new. Thanks to all the talented Artist that get together and make their creations available. And thanks to the hard working and dedicated organizers that keep making the show a great success and a destination for all Halloween lovers.
That said. time now for some eye candy. Wish I could have been in more than one place at a time so that I could have snapped up all the goings on. Apologize for anyone or thing that I couldn’t catch on film.

The Great Pumpkin who, brought along Mr. Bones, standing and greeting guest by a vintage Hearst outside the gallery.
The fun started on preview night as everyone brought there appetite for food, drink, fun, friends and art.

Couldn’t help a photo op with sweet Robyn who’s gaze was mesmerizing...
Everyone was all decked out in their Halloween finery...
Before long the gallery was packed to the gills… 

We all reluctantly called it an early night in order to be fresh for the next day. It’s a good thing as well cause the crowd was there waiting for us to open the doors to fun.
All in all it was a fantastic time for everyone, and everyone is already looking forward to next year. So thanks again for your continued support and encouragement on behalf of everyone at Spirits in Sanford, see you next year!

The Show Must Go On

The Show Must Go On

Hello everyone. Finally able to sit and jot down some worlds in-between shows. First off a most heart felt thank you to all the collectors and artist that made Halloween and Vine a bang of a show. It's alway been a wonderful venue but, Lesley, Stephanie and Dennis brought in some wonderful new energy and artist. Thank you for all their hard work.

There were the usual suspects of artist and collectors, and many new ones whom Im store be putting H&V on their annual schedule of events. I was alone so I wasn't able to document all the goings on as I wanted to. Apologies for blurry pics.

There were early morning risers that make up the long line that has become tradition at H&V, by opening time it went round the building and down the block. Some of my favorite collectors and all around wonderful people could be found at the front of the line.

Inside was chuck full of pumpkins  and amazing halloween art. Every where you looked there was talent, building excitement and anticipation. I know that it was difficult for me to choose which piece or pieces were going home with me this year within my budget. I can only imagine what everyone else goes through to make that excruciating decision. I only wish is that I could go home with one of everyone's.

It was great fun to catch up with old friends and make new ones all sharing the same enthusiasm for all things Halloween. I look forward to being part of next years show, and can't wait to see what the H&V team has up their sleeves. If this years success was any indication then "the skys' the limit".

Meanwhile Im busily preparing for Spirits in Sanford on October 13th. I can't believe it's only days away. This years line up is stellar and from all  early indications and buzz will be a smash. Be sure to get there early for the best treasure. Now back to packing, and once again thank you for everyone's continued support and encouragement.
