"New Year, New Works" Saturday, January 8, 2011 6 to 9 P.M. 12570 SW Broadway St., Beaverton
Amato's will start 2011 with an artists reception featuring the jewelry of Bert Cohen and the watermedia paintings of Donna Sanson. Mark your calendars now so you can enjoy the new work by these two talented ladies. The reception will also include live music by Bossa Duo, and complimentary appetizers and local wines.
As always, Amato's will display the latest creations of its twelve member artists who work in an array of exciting materials - glass, stone, metal, fiber, pastel, oil, acrylic and watercolor. We have it all at Amato's! We hope to see you on January 8.
Our very own Annie Salness was honored Tuesday night by her family, friends, and community with an evening to celebrate her spirit and the love we all have for her. Her closet friends and neighbors put together an awesome fundraiser based on prints of Annie's work and donations by a community of fellow artists. Annie surprised us with her presence and what a joy it was to see her, looking radiant as always in a Christmas green sweater and smiling face and eyes.
Joe Pogan's donation of "Bird on a Hitch" was the first piece of artwork to sell - and well over the asking price. Attendees were very generous and the event was an overall success - happy crowd of people, yummy desserts and coffee, music in the air, and artwork all around. Go Annie.
I posted an album of photos from the event on my Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=44223&id=1838922784
We're all set for our holiday tree event. The new artwork is in place, the trees are installed, the cookies have been made, and
the gallery is decorated.
We hope to have a good crowd tomorrow afternoon to see the new art, to enjoy the live holiday music, to nibble on the "World's Best Sugar Cookies," (a recipe from the kitchen of dear Mrs. Donovan), and to bid on ten of the most delightful little holiday trees you could ever hope to see in one place at one time.
The trees will be displayed and available for silent bidding through noon on December 18. Be sure to make a visit to Amato's a must-see experience this holiday. You won't be disappointed!
