AIS comes to Kirkland . . .

American Impressionist Society's 2016 National Exhibition opened in Kirkland's Howard/Mandville Gallery last weekend. It is a beautiful show and will be up until October 30th. The entire exhibition has been posted on the ais website.

 Opening reception with Michele Usibelli
and Jack and Obadinah Heavner

Calvin Liang's Friday evening demo . . .

Three days of membership events ended Saturday with paint out at Kirkland's Marina Park . . . complete with early morning coffee, box lunch, clouds, sun, clouds, wind and rain! Several hours later an evening reception in Howard/Mandville Gallery closed the opening week events.

I enjoyed the time with old friends and meeting artists from across the country, who came for the exhibition's opening week.
