The range and talent this year is extraordinary. We not only have every medium and subject imaginable represented, but we also have work from all over the nation -and world!- showcased. From your beloved local artists to talent you've never had the privilege to see. With 160 works of art that has traveled from New York, California, Canada, even Ireland and Norway; Art Comes Alive is the epitome of all art shows. The Pièce de résistance.

The gallery was buzzing with energy. We had 250 artists, sponsors, jurors, family and friends come to see the show and support one another during a beautiful awards ceremony where we gave away 70+ awards to deserving fine artists.

The food, by Elegant Fare, was vibrantly colorful and delicious and the classical guitar by Rick Wiley set the stage for a warm environment and evening of art and celebration.
