Though it has come and gone, our Best of the Northwest Spring Show 2014 was a dazzling success. Numbers were up as patrons came out in strong support, and we received positive feedback about the quality and variety of our participating artists, a number of which did our show for the first time.

The Basket of Art raffle was a hit with everyone. It was a coveted prize full of fabulous art that created excitement at the front door, and fun for all who participated. We will definitely be doing more of these baskets at future shows.
