Thank you...all of you!

The gallery is quiet today....(but don't worry, it won't look this way for long, a brand new show hangs tomorrow). Thank you, all of you. Our walls were graced with the most beautiful show (ever)! We're already thinking about next year. Do you have ideas and suggestions for us? We're just an email away. (gallery@columbiaarts.org). Have a wonderful "rest of the summer" and see you next year!
