BAGSC members at the conference are: Beth Stone, Cristina Baltayian, Deborah Friedman, Deborah Shaw, Gayle Uyehara, Lori Vreeke, Melanie Campbell-Carter, Nina Antze, Sally Jacobs, and Terri Munroe. We are going to try to post some photos and updates as we can. I’ll confess, the blog postings aren’t behaving well from my iPad, but we’ll do what we can.

Wednesday evening was the kick-off opening reception for the Small Works exhibition. Gayle Uyehara took a panoramic view of the reception.

The Small Works is one of my favorite exhibitions. It’s wonderful to see the range of art and creativity. This year is no exception. As always, it’s hard to get close to the art at an opening, so I’m glad to get to go back today for a more careful look.

The hotel is within walking distance of the 16th Street Mall, with lots of shops and restaurants, and easy access to the Denver Art Museum. A free shuttle runs the length of the mall. Gayle, Sally, Anita Walsmit Sachs and more friends from the Netherlands, Esmee Winkel and Marianne van der Stee-Kuiper went to dinner at the Tilted Kilt, and reported the people-watching was excellent.
