Opening Night at Quail's Roost Gallery

We had a great night at the opening to my show as the feature artist at the Quail's Roost Gallery at the Rustico Winery in Oliver, BC. Left to right; Donna Cooke (my aunt), me and Mike (my manager and husband).

Family and friends gathered to celebrate with me.

Special guests (artists) included Cameron Ogilvie, Shannon Ford and Leza Macdonald. Plus many other local artists were in attendance!

All in all, it was a great night and I was a bit overwhelmed with how many attended!

A big thank you to Sally, Arvie, Donna and Bruce for making this all happen for me! I am truly blessed.

There are many other artists in this gallery and my work will be up until May 30th, so there is plenty of time to wander in over the next few days.

Plus, tomorrow, May 27th is the "Half Corked Marathon" which is sold out at 700 entries! They are expecting up to 1000 people to wander through the local wineries as this group of marathoners make their way from winery to winery here in Oliver! Should be something to see! I heard that there is a contest for best costume!

I will be at the gallery tomorrow afternoon to meet those who want to venture upstairs to the gallery (Quail's Roost). I look forward to meeting you!
