Thursday:) The Art Club of McKinney

10 May

“Art should not be admired from afar, but rather lived up close and personal.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

**************************

Today, The Art Club of McKinney had their end of the year luncheon at the beautiful Heard Craig House.

The event was catered by Hugs and set up in the gorgeous dining room of the historical home, surrounded by brilliant stained glass windows, antique furniture, hand-painted china, most of all, good friends.

Also on display, were the auction bowls created by local artists that will be featured in this year’s Empty Bowls charity event, coming up on May 16th at MPAC.

I was especially honored to have my auction bowl on display.

A lovely luncheon and beautiful day.
