The museum put on a spectacular wine and appetizer spread prior to the show opening that evening and it was packed with people coming to see the show. After the show all the artists and their guests went to an Italian restaurant where we were served dinner this time put on by the Susan K Black Foundation and the Blossom Competition. I really am happy that I was able to attend. I would never have traveled from Oregon to Florida to see the show had not my Sister-in- law who lives in Bradenton Florida allowed me to stay with her and to also attend and drive me the 100 miles to see the show. Although weather wise, I could have stayed in Oregon, Florida 's weather while there was not much better then at home. Somewhat chilly, very little sun, very windy and some rain.
In my next post I will give some history of the museum and its' founder, along with the winning entry.
