Tonight was The Foundry’s third annual Christmas Party. We invite our members and their spouses or dates to attend. Members are to bring an original piece of art and we have a dirty Santa exchange. Its so much fun.
Tonight we also distributed four awards. First was Most Valuable Member for 2012, which was given to Diana Campbell Rice. Diana is our cheerleader, a rock and always there to lend a hand. Second was Most Improved Artist of 2012, which was awarded to Alexandra Ortiz. Alex has had a bumpy year but has pushed through and grown a lot. The third and fourth awards were Red Dot Awards. First Joel Arvallo was given a red dot award for the most sales in a solo show for Organic Abstracts, Untitled I. Lastly, Jason Stewart was given a red dot award for the most sales outside a solo show. Both Joel and Jason are very into their craft. They both have a style all their own.
The night was full of laughter, cheer and community. Onward and upward Foundrians! Let’s help support each other, grow and move ever so much closer to our individual goals. I’m proud to be a co-owner of The Foundry as well as a member with such a great group.
