ARTS HOW

This past Friday Scott and I attended the ARTS HOW show at our friend Sarah and Josh's home. They had been preparing for the awesome show for awhile now, and I was so happy that we were able to attend.




The first time Scott and I visited their house, Sarah and Josh told us that they wanted to make their front entry way into an art gallery. Well, that is exactly what they did for their very first art show and I really think it turned out great.


Both sides of their walls were filled with amazing art from local artists. I really loved the range of styles they had featured, and also that Sarah and Josh included a few pieces of their own work.



I spot some of Josh and Sarah's work!




Sarah made the yummiest chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies for her guests, and had sparkling water, wine and beer for refreshments.


Scott and I may have stepped outside to admire their newly remodeled pool, and take a peek into the art gallery from a different view. All of the photos above were taken quite early on in the evening, but let me tell you, later on that night the gallery was full of sweet faces. I also really loved how everyone could move about into the living room, and kitchen, leaving spaces for others to admire the artwork as they arrived. Kara and I may have stopped around the refreshment table for a little bit, talking about blue jeans and eating cookies!


It was also great to visit with Adrianna, who was visiting from California, and her boyfriend Juan. Adrianna owns an amazing accessories online shop, Shop Le Mode, and alway has the cutest necklaces, bracelets, and purses whenever I see her!


Sarah and Josh were gracious hosts and the night went off without a hitch. I already can't wait until their next show!

Do you enjoy going to art shows? What are you up to today?
