ARTpARTy February 13, 2015

We had another ARTpARTy the night before Valentine's Day and this might have been the last one at this location. Hopefully we will be moved into our new home or at least have it finished enough to host the next ARTpARTy there. But we had many fine pieces of art there, and in the end 19 pieces were exchanged. Apologies though for the crappy iPhone pics

I am now the proud owner of Miau Lisa that Mitch and Scott brought to the party.

The Tiles project by Brad and his kids proved to be quite popular.

Paige and Andy crafted jewelry for this edition of the ARTpARTy.

Julia's LOVE photo collage was very appropriate, and so were Brian's flowers.

Sarah and Barry have missed a couple parties but came back with passion.

Jessica and Jade were at the ARTpARTy for the first time, and fit right in.

Anna and Adam now live closer to us, but still had to juggle hard to come. We greatly appreciate it.

Aruna is a seasoned ARTpARTY pro and crafted this colorful pillow.

Her husband Michael always brings popular photos to the gathering.

Elizabeth and Michael also were ARTpARTy newbies, and we are glad they came.

Caitlin and Ben live next door to us and this also was a first time event for them.

Our friends Anna and Greg brought home crafted beer to the ARTpARTy, an item stolen often.

Amy and her boyfriend created these 2 very popular pieces, and I tried very hard to get the "guitar."

Maria and Jan drove all the way from Mount Airy to be part of that evening. Yeah.

Our Au Pair David created this Origami chair.

The terrorist attacks on Charlie Hebdo were sill on my mind.

Another ARTpARTy in Winston-Salem

A bit later than usual we had an ARTpARTy last night and it was a success.  We all enjoyed great conversations, creative thinking and excellent food from The Porch in Winston-Salem.  Below are some images of folks who attended and the at they created and brought to the ARTpARTy.

                                  For our Au Pair Sara this was her first experience like this.

                              Kevin and Kristen worked together on this pregnancy project. 

                           Andy and Paige made these great Steve Prefontaine homage t-shirts. 

                                      The world's smallest orchid captured by Anna.

                 Greg's cool magnetic bottle opener was very popular at the ART drawing later.

                                        Christina with the beautiful soaps she had created.

     Brad has been at many of these ARTpARTy events and his candle holders proved popular.

          Leah's project was excellent and is adorning the home of someone else as I write this.

                            We had 3 architects at the ARTpARTy but Matt is not one of them.

                             Our neighbors from up the street were ready to head to the moon.

                              This is an awesome picture of a fountain from Evan and Caitlin.

         The first time at the ARTpARTy and hopefully not the last time either for Chad and Martina.

                                                            New but certainly no rookie.

                         His sister was a late entry and added some of her jewelry to the art mix.

                                       Mike got a bit of help from his partner for this project.

                        Brian and Julia are also ARTpARTy regulars and we are glad that is so.

                Aruna and Michael had an art project each and we approved of Aruna's brownies.

                                            Matt is another cool creative neighbor we have.


                 This is a tiny representation of the Chestnut house project Mark had submitted.

                                            Adam and Anna were also ARTpARTy newbies. 

                                               My butterfly project for the ARTpARTy
