High Point Opening Reception, Salida CO

The opening held last night at Paquette Gallery in Salida featured the equine artwork of Barb Haynie and Cheri Isgreen. Guests were treated to a variety of barn-themed food to enjoy at the reception and to bring home to their equine friends, including carrot cake & oatmeal cookies, ginger snaps, honey grahams, baby carrots, apple slices, peppermints, and sugar cubes. For Year of the Horse, patrons sampled spring rolls, rice cracker mix, and crescent almond cookies, while exploring Zen brush painting and zhezhi paper folding at the interactive arts table. A silent auction for the painting, “Plenty” and monoprint cards brings the total of funds raised for the Colorado Horsecare Foodbank to over $400 since the beginning of the “High Point” art tour. A musical medley of horse songs contributed to the festive atmosphere, celebrating the horse in art, food, and song. Four lucky patrons were recipients of artwork created by Cheri Isgreen as doorprizes for the opening reception.
