I'm looking forward to an evening of painting, wine and cheese alongside artist Karen Pedersen at the Evanescence Gallery in High River. Each month, the gallery hosts 'First Friday' from 7-9 pm which is a fun evening to meet and greet artists as well as enjoy a lovely evening out. The gallery is a beautiful gem full of diverse artistic talents which features a variety of fine art and craft and is one of my favorite places to pick up beautiful handmade gifts as well as quality art supplies. The photo above was taken six years ago during one of their openings...as you can see, I had a great time. There's nothing like spending an evening painting, snacking and chatting with wonderful people.
