Two days of art openings - the Southeast Open Judged Exhibit, well what can I say? Wow! This was an exciting event. As the Visual Arts Coordinator I get to see what all goes into putting on an event like this. Between myself and our dedicated group of volunteers that make up the Exhibit Committee, we were all very busy getting this exhibit ready. In the end, all the hard work truly paid off. The Juvenile opening on Monday April 2nd was great. Seeing how proud all of these kids were to see their work on display in our gallery really made it all worth it to me. It's nights like that that make me proud of what I am trying to do at the Steinbach Arts Council. On Tuesday April 3rd, we opened the adult exhibit. The best part of the whole night was seeing the shock on Edmund Raguindin’s face when he spotted the first place ribbon on his beautiful work of art. A big thank you goes out to the volunteers who came in to give us a hand with refreshments and even a little bit of entertainment.
