February's Reception

We had a good turnout on Valentine's Day for our February Artists Reception. It marked the introduction to Mark & Kristi Gonzalez, owners of Bridal Veil Winery, who will offer free daily wine tasting in the gallery starting in March. They joined us over the weekend to offer samples of their wines and sell wine by the glass and by the bottle.

Mark and Kristi will also share the story behind their new venture in a free presentation - "The Marriage of Art and Wine"  - on Sunday, March 22, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the gallery. The presentation is free but registration is required. To register, email
In addition to wine, there was an abundance of chocolate at this reception, with the big hit being a decadent chocolate covered chocolate chip cookie dough delight made by Bert Cohen; and guests were treated to their choice of either a white or yellow rose to  celebrate the special occasion. In case you missed the evening, here are a few photos:
