OoHA Reception

Our "Gala Reception" has come and gone. The seven of us cleaned up pretty darn good. From left to right: Sharon Crute, Margaret Watts, Lorna Effler, Nancy Moskovitz, me, Moe Hahn and Mary Verrandeaux.

We had a nice turn out, especially for our first group show. And better yet, a few paintings were sold. The show will be up until November 14, so there is still a chance for you to stop by the Brick and take a look.

My husband, Harry, was a big hit when he walked in with his top hat on to act as bar tender, along with Nancy's husband Rick Moskovitz.

It was a fun evening. The work looks great. New contacts were made.
All in all---I count this show a success!!

OoHA Exhibit

There is a great deal of satisfaction that comes when you put a show to bed after you have done all you can do to pull it together. "OoHA H.U.G.S. Ocala" will be either a great success or a big failure, but I am at peace with the fact that our salon did as much as we could to make it successful.

The Gala Reception is tonight, Friday Nov. 6, so at 5:30 all seven of us will be in position, ready to greet all those who come to support us and H.U.G.S. Charities, Inc. We are giving a lot away on this one...25% of sales to H.U.G.S., a non-profit organization that raises funds for the research, prevention, detection and treatment of all forms of cancer and assists individuals and families whose lives have been affected by it and 25% to Marion Cultural Alliance to further the arts in Marion County.

If you are in the area tonight for the reception or anytime before the show closes November 14 come by the Brick to be treated to some of the best art found in the area. I am confident you will walk away with a new appreciation for the quality of art and artists that are right here in Ocala.
