The opening reception for “Moments Like This”, an exhibition, didn’t just contain high and low notes; with Art Walk moments that were quiet and rousing, it offered, as always, LIVE action with plenty of soul and magic!
Performing LIVE Shirley 88, Shirley Smith-Yates sang “You’ve got a friend” for visitors and guests, including greyhounds, who were part of a show and tell about doing good works by featured artist Aliza Allen. 20% of her art proceeds will go to Greyhound Adoption-NW.

Moments Like This, an exhibition through August, offers a rich and varied mix of art; loosely woven together by summer time artists mesmerized by sparkling waters and fiery sunsets (“light so soft and tender, despite its brilliance” as Henri Matisse said).
Just minutes before the opening of MOMENTS LIKE THIS, art walk hostesses relax (sans shoes). Pictured left to right: Kay, Denise, Ellen, Joan, Kathy F., and Kathy B.

Gallery interns: Miss Amanda and Miss Amy
“Amanda has been selected repeatedly for lead roles at work, even travelling overnight with the work team for school sales (she is a rep, selling and taking orders); Amy has been on-call for many neighborhood house, garden and pet sitting jobs PLUS her school district work; (with their summer jobs, both girls are definitely going to be able to pay for all their college books and other expenses for this approaching college year; their work ethic gained through working at your gallery over the years has definitely helped their employers see their work ethic! THANK YOU for teaching them how to do things right and follow directions!” —Shannon (Amanda’s and Amy’s mother)
“Thanks so much for a great show. In appreciation for all you do, here is a gift just for you. This is a painting of one of the flower bouquets you were handing out during the show IN FULL FLOWER, back in May.
