Art Party at the Herndon Gallery & blog interview

The John Bryan community-wide tile-making project is coming along and what fun it is to explore all the pieces! A chance to see it was at the Yellow Springs Arts Council annual Art Party at the Herndon Gallery on March 2nd. What a fabulous setting to enjoy an evening of sharing art, and meeting local artists as well as a fabulous exhibit called "Human Rights Painting Project" by Tom Block. We would like to thank all those who came, those who shared their work with us, Carolion for the music, and Winds Cafe for donating 2 gift certificates for our drawing. Thanks also have to go to the Herndon Gallery for allowing us to host our event there, as well as the staff who arranged the seating and tables-it was truly appreciated.

Check out the blog interview of a local artist known in the blog world as Jafabrit on Philip's blog.
