Our last art opening for the Fall Artists-in-Residence program occurred on Saturday, January 26th from 2-4pm. We had a wonderful turnout! Thank you to the Arts Council of Brazos Valley, who graciously assisted us in hosting and promoting this event, as well as to the many Arts Council visitors from College Station.
Also, thank you to the many local Navasota residents, including Pattie Pederson with The Gallery in Downtown Navasota, members of the Garden Club, and Two Rivers Heritage Foundation, who were also able to attend. We were grateful to have the historical ‘Best Museum’ at the Horlock History Center open as well for the occasion!
It was a bittersweet celebration for the artists, since this has been such a rich experience personally and professionally for each of them in different ways. Rebecca Dias was honored to have her family visiting–Robin Dias and Bill Gillen from Phoenix, Arizona, as well as her sister Elizabeth Dias from Washington, D.C.
Lastly, we would like to thank Johnny and Lisé McNally for playing incredible music for the event, and Matt with the Navasota Examiner for stopping by!
