With a larger selection of artwork including many artists not exhibiting before, our visitors had a wide variety of selections to choose from.
This year we did a few new things to enhance our visitors’ experience. On entry we passed out Passports to visitors with the instructions to have 3 artists on the main level and 3 artists on the lake level initial the Passport. We collected the Passports and had 2 drawings for gift certificates at local restaurants. By asking people to visit both levels, we ensured that all artists had an equal opportunity to show off their wares.
We also shared the silent auction earnings with the artists, who you can imagine were very pleased to earn cash for their donated art.
