    Just returned from Alex's show in Emporia. The Art Council had a sign outside announcing the reception, and the gallery was very nice. Emporia is a small college town, and here's hoping Topeka's Washburn University beats the Emporia State Hornets this afternoon. Go Ichabod's!

    Alex's show looks to be a big success, quite a few pages of guests signed in at the door. Many people were lingering at each display and discussing the prints and how great each picture was. Many enjoyed wine and snacks while reviewing the work.

    Alex had 23 prints displayed, and each was truly excellent in composition and and presentation.

    Alex is becoming the Godfather of Kansas large format artist's.

    Great job Alex.

    Mike

    I would have loved to attend but not possible even from Tulsa. It seems I can hardly get to Oklahoma City because I am tied to the computer at work these day and working 10 to 12 hour day, and some weekends. It's just no fun anymore.

    Also went down to take a peek and say hello. Great job!

    And I really like the calendar too! Now I know exactly where to go if the stack blows at Wolf Creek! :smile:

    Thanks to everyone for stopping by. I sincerely appreciate it. We had about sixty people come through. Not bad considering there was a hot football game going on down the street. :smile:
