International Women Celebrate at AyrSpace

The opening gala. Donna Kaminski and Tammy Watt flew in from Calgary. It's funny how you can spend just a few hours with people but know they are kindred spirits ; ) I met and renewed friendships with lots of the artists over the weekend. It was a pleasure hangin' out with y'all (look, I'm already talking like an Albertan : ).
It was a full house!
The Honourable Sheila Copps addressed the crowd. She did a great job!

So, the show was packed and very much a success. For those of you who submitted work but weren't able to be there, let me tell you that the comments were wonderful and the art looks fantastic. It is a real pleasure to mill around and take it all in. And if you like, you can always order a book showcasing all the works and the artist's stories. It is a lovely keepsake. Thanks AyrSpace (Jill Yuzwa) and to everyone involved.
