BOX Art Studio Party

IMG_1029

Dave White here!  On May 4th, I had an amazing opportunity to pitch in on makebright and cover the tremendous talent of four artists at the BOX 10 Studio Party.  The incredible Cathy Farwell organized this event as a thank you to the BOX 10 sponsors and donors, as well as the official opening of BOX 11.

Michelle Salter, Denise Strong, Fatima Garzan, and Cathy Farwell (above) all demonstrated techniques of their chosen media.
