Below is a preview/overview of the show.  The works are beautiful especially in person, and each piece is carefully placed in order to harmonize with the art next to it.  Cynthia Schubert (who organized the exhibit and directed the placement of art on the wall),  MaryAnne Long (who assisted the entire day), and the members who helped hang the art did a wonderful job. Thank you to all our excellent  volunteers and to the members who are displaying their talents.  WAG hopes our visitors enjoy the show!
