Westchase Artists Society at JCC

Yesterday, March 14, 2010, the Westchase Artists Society officially took up residence at the Tampa Jewish Community Center. Well not us physically, but some representations of our artwork now are residing at the JCC. Another venue that our group is really excited about because this, hopefully, will turn into a long relationship with the JCC for exhibition and sale of our members' artwork. Thanks go out to Mara Gessele and Dean Mackey for taking on the task of hanging the first show! We'll be having a reception soon to celebrate this new show. Take a look at Dean's video to get a preview of the show.

A Perfect Day

It's a great feeling when a group project comes together and the end result is one that your proud of. The current group show for the Westchase Artists Society is a great example of many different parts coming together for a smooth fit and a beautiful outcome. On March 2nd everything worked in our favor, the rains came early in the morning, all of the participating artists delivered their artwork on time, and the hanging crew, Teresa Trubilla, Judy Freeman, Dean Mackey, Wayne Barrett and Craig Royal, worked incredibly well together. Special thanks also go out to the staff at Ruth Eckerd Hall, especially Lisa Taylor and the wonderfully talented artists that participated in this group show.
