Local artists mingled with parishioners and guests as we gathered for our first art show and silent auction. The auction offered curios and carpets, tickets and trips and rare books, while the art varied from traditional watercolours and pastels to more avant garde and mystical. Patrons also enjoyed a wine tasting featuring a variety of reds and whites and appetizers that tempted us to go back for more. Thanks to all the volunteers who worked so hard and well to create the event. It it hoped that it will become an annual one.
