We are looking forward to welcoming many guests.  The exhibit will be open from 5pm-8pm. There is no charge. Come! Talk to the artist, visit with each other, and most importantly experience the exhibit. The reception is open to everyone. The sign-up sheet will be in the sign up area by the narthex.
