Closing Reception "The Hound Movement"

They say all good things must come to an end.   Thursday Jan. 6, 2011 was the closing reception at RCAA for The Hound Movement.
Apache and Terry at the reception. 
Apache and April were invited to the reception.   April the greyhound, unfortunately she was unable to attend because she hurt herself earlier in the day.   Didn't hurt Apache's feelings, he was the king of the event.   He stole the show.  When people walked into the gallery they could not believe their eyes.   He was such a gentleman and allowed everyone to pet him, love on him and take photos.   What a ham!

"Summer Fun" the painting in the exhibit.   This painting is 36 x 36 and just plain full of fun.  

"The Hound Movement" exhibit. 

Friends Abbe Shaw my partner in dogs and Fran Reisman both from Santa Barbara came down for the event. 

Guitarist and singer Ellie Joy Schwartz, singing to Apache and Abbe.   Ellie is always a joy to have at an event.   She is wonderful.   Everyone should hire her to play, you will not be disappointed.  

My friend Adeola and Apache.   Adeola is an artist and has an exhibit at the deli across the street.   Also, a couple paintings in the Ensenada exhibit.  

Clidene Roper from Beaumont.   Clidene is the director of Banning Center for the Arts.   Thank you Clidene for driving all that way to see the exhibit. 

This little guy came in with postcards of his mothers artwork.   He walked up and said I want to give you a postcard of my mom's artwork.   I told him he should be very proud of his mom, he said he was.  Then he promptly said "now can I have a picture taken with your dog".......He was a true character and I really enjoyed him.

At times the crowds were huge, no room for anyone, but they had to pet the dog and have their photos taken with him.

These two beautiful little girls got on the floor with Apache to give him some love.   By this time Apache was starting to wear down.  

Apache and Fran Reisman.  Fran is the editor of the Afghan Hound Review a national publication.  It was great to have her at the event.   Especially when Apache had enough.  

The End
to a beautiful exhibit and a wonderful evening with friends at RCAA.   Thank you Mark Schooley for the opportunity to have been a part of this International Exhibit in Riverside, CA.   Also thank you to all of you who took time out of your busy schedules to support me by coming by to see the exhibit either during one of  the 3 receptions or during the 2 months that it was on display.  I also want to say thank you to my out of the area friends and family who really wanted to see the exhibit but were unable to make it.  Your notes of encouargement were so thoughtful.    I really appreciate each and everyone of you.     Thank you!
