Having just returned from the Second Saturday art event at the Cashmere Arts and Activities Center, I can say that it was an unqualified success. Folks came and enjoyed the art and some bought art and all enjoyed the wine and sparkling cider. A new young artist from India was exhibiting form the first time. I only wish I could pronounce or for that matter spell his name, but I can without hesitation say I enjoyed his work. I will get his name and write about him later as I think we will be seeing more of him in the future. Artie Bowman the director of the gallery at the center was so appreciative of the three wineries, Crayelle Cellars, Waterville Winery and the Horan Estates Winery that donated wine for the event. And I can say that everyone there who partook of the wine thought each of the selections was thoroughly enjoyable. All in all an enjoyable evening with the folks from the gallery, those who came to enjoy the art and the wonderful people from the senior center who provide the space for the gallery. Hats off to Artie, Sandra, Janet, Jackie, Ronie and Dorethia for a wonderful evening in Cashmere.
