Post 137: PWAS 50th Anniversary More Pictures Part 2

PWAS 50th Anniversary continued - Part 2

Recently, the Prince William Art Society celebrated 50 YEARS! Isn't that awesome! The members celebrated that golden milestone on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at The Winery at Sunshine Ridge Farm located at 15850 Sunshine Ridge Lane, Gainesville, VA 20155. Their website is https://www.thewineryatsunshineridgefarms.com/

In my previous post I had my photographs as well as a few that a friend of mine took and those are found in this blog post: https://donnascavepainting.blogspot.com/2021/06/pwas-50th-anniversary-celebration-at.html so be sure and view those too.

On with the show...

I wish I had asked what was on the mantle, an interesting object is it not? If anyone knows, let me know! Artwork above L to R is 1. "Strutting My Peacock Stuff" by Donna Liguria, 2. Jim Gallagher, 3. unknown, 4. Jim Gallagher, unknown.

The photographs were taken by various PWAS members so I am not sure to whom the credits toll.  The first two artworks above from left to right is by Bettie Sperty, 3. unsure, 4. Bettie, 5. unsure. I will update if I learn more, so please let me know!

Artwork L to R: 1. unknown, 2. unknown, 3. Wendy Zaidman

This is the upstairs of the winery which is available for lots of events. The view from the windows is AWESOME and the view in the room is awesome because of the artwork AND the PWAS members!

Sandra McClelland Lewin, PWAS President did the opening honors and introductions, and Mr Sperty played guitar, although not at the same time.

Table Decorations were lovely, doubly so because artwork was also added for door prizes by PWAS members.
