Thanks to all the participants, helpers and attendee's - the J show was a success!
We raised more than half our goal, auctioned off 24 artworks, listened to great music until the wee hours, and welcomed a wide array of visitors into our studios and gallery space.
When the crowd got thick, nobody took any photo's!
