Thanks for the food demonstrations by Dave Durrance, Janet Lightfoot and Scotty Cathcart; you showed us different ways to work and create with food. Also a big thank-you to DJ Naka G; as usual, he got folks dancing.

A special thanks to those of you who celebrate art with us every First Thursday and attended this special event to show your support – it was really great to see you there. And, of course, thanks to anyone we may have missed.

Our theme and goal was a night of art, music, food and fun. We hope everyone had a good time!
