A beautiful JCA show

It's hard to believe the month is almost over, but this month we had a wonderful show at the Jewish Community Alliance. They have a great gallery space, and do sell paintings from there, so it's a wonderful place to show. We had an excellent turn-out at our November 4 reception.

I've been to quite a few receptions at the JCA, and due to their strict kosher requirements most groups just contract with the JCA itself to provide the food, which is always fine but rather boring. However our amazing hospitality chair, Kathleen Trued, chose to cater it herself, and it was the best reception food I've ever had at the JCA! Kathleen really outdoes herself.

Thanks also to show chair Janelle Waggoner for all her hard work in getting the show received and hung.  It looks lovely.

As I say every single time, pastels under glass are notoriously hard to photograph. The JCA gallery faces a wall of windows, and it was a bright, sunny day. You can't just face a painting head-on and shoot as there is so often much glare. I had to twist and turn like a pretzel, from all different angles, to try to get even a hint of what many of these lovely pieces looked like, and even then I did justice to very few of them. However it's a wonderful show and here is a taste of what we all did. And you still have a couple more days to see the show in person if you haven't seen it yet.
