A lovely evening of art, wine, hors d’oeuvres and great company at the Los Gatos Museums Gallery’s holiday reception! It’s so nice to spend the evening with all our local member artists and our fabulous art loving community!
The holiday reception invitation was based on a detail from the painting, Joyeux Noël by one of new member artists, Johane Amirault’s. Her vibrant, (usually) abstract work is a welcome addition to the gallery!
I love the way the community comes our to celebrate with us every year!
The tree was hung with the small treasure paintings, proceeds of which are earmarked for our party fund! Looks like member artist Belinda Lima is working the desk.
Member artists Ellen Howard (who’s new to the gallery this year with her beautiful oil landscapes) and Ed Lucey chatting in the corner.
Member artist Veronica Gross conversing with quests in this corner.
I love when this kind of thing happens, I had gone over to complement this woman on her fabulous taste (loved her vintage style) only to find out that she was the very person who now owns the folding screen that is in the background of my painting Feathers! Her friend, Lisa, had discovered this the month before when she was admiring my painting and brought her to the reception. It was a blast to talk with Shanna and Lisa, who are both portrait lovers, and to hear their fabulous stories of the portraits in their lives. I felt like I was finding members of my tribe!
Member artists Mary Ann Henderson and Carole Rafferty talking with artist Tom Yacoe.

Is that member artist Kevin Kasik on the left (I’m not sure as it looks like he’s traded his standard page boy for a holiday fedora)?
Member artists Julia Watson and Nancy deWeess looking to thank co-owners Larry Arzie and David Stonesifer for all they do to make this great gallery possible!
Thanks too to Julia Watson, member artist and part time manager of our gallery for all her hard work making this year a very successful one!

Thanks to everyone who turned out and to those who volunteered to make this a such a nice event!
