Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who helped with the show (Kelly McCurdy, Becky Bales, James Gilbreath, Robertus Van der Wege, and Gaby Pruitt). This organization runs on volunteers and I don’t know what I would have done without you this last year!! Also, a big thank you to all the artists who submitted their work. Without your creativity and talent, there would not be a show of this caliber!!

Virtual Tour of the Members’ Show Exhibit

A Virtual Tour was filmed on March 3rd and is being edited. We will send out an announcement when it is posted. A slide show version was posted up on the Plano Art Association Facebook page on March 4th.  We will also post the video tour when we receive the edited version. Thank you to Amy Pagan, Kyle Bradford, Sean Trauth and Katelyn Cave for working with us to produce this video. 

Special thanks also go to Jennifer Seibert and Jerry Smith. Jennifer hosted the virtual tour. Jerry Smith was the judge for the show and filmed a special segment dealing with the judging and the elements that he used to judge. It should be very educational. I can’t wait to see it live!! The film crew from the Gallery @ Courtyard Theater are also planning to post a shorter version on the Plano Art and Events social media page.
