The opening night is filled with a genuine celebratory atmosphere. This event presents an opportunity for the artists to share their works, and welcome the feelings of pride and admiration which are evoked in their family, friends and the public at large. This event exemplifies a community at its best.

The artists themselves will be making a special appearance at the vernissage to showcase their works of art. Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase and bring home unique pieces of art adding to the encouragement and enthusiasm of the artists.
