Here are the attendance numbers for our Exhibit at the Rose Shenson Gallery, September 4 thru October 3, 2010. We had a total of 199 visit the Gallery, 90 of whom attended our reception on September 11. Sorry if any of you missed visiting this exhibit. It was excellent! The lucky winners of the three beautiful Bud Hunziker watercolors were all from San Jose: Gail Dance, May Jones, and Brad Santos. Congratulations to all of them! FYI, Janice had nothing to do with Drawing Brad’s name (other than praying).
