Gallery Debut

So much paperwork comes home from school that sometimes I glance at something and its contents may not completely register until later.  That's what happened with a letter sent home about some work Kate had done in art class.  I looked for the same letter in Wes' folder but there wasn't one, but still I didn't think much of it.

When Matt came home from work he said, "do we need to go to this?", so I looked at the paper again. 

Your child's artwork was chosen to be displayed at the Ward Museum's 'Life on the Eastern Shore' exhibit.  Or something close to that.  Then it stated the date of the reception and how long the exhibit would run.  So we packed up everyone tonight to see what it was all about.

There was a gallery displaying several art projects and pictures from area schools, grades K-12.  And sure enough, Kate's Blue Heron was among them.

It was such a fun event and I'm so glad we actually went.  There were treats, wreath making with wood wreaths and cloth acorns, cool art displays since it is a museum about water fowl ... mostly carvings that were really beautiful; it was just an enjoyable, spur of the moment evening.
