This year’s Members’ Show filled up at warp speed with all 250 entries submitted in just under four hours. Several artists fully embraced the theme with cosmically inspired pieces. Whether using paint and canvas, concrete or stone, eggs or feathers, our members created boldly. The opening party was an intergalactic success as well. Members braved the first snowstorm of the season for a fun, family event that included a face painter, photo booth, and interstellar art projects.
