Showcasing exciting new art inspired by our internationally recognized Dark Skies. Saturday, August 7th brought over 80 people in attendance to look at the awesome 2 floors of artwork, two unique shows, listen to great music by Smythe and Taylor, some good eats and drinks, and Deb Yarra of Dark Skies was kept very busy with various Alcohol Ink demonstrations as well as judging the upstairs Spotlight Gallery show, Nocturnes.
We would like to say a huge Thank You to Smythe & Taylor, Deb Yarra, Dark Skies of the Wet Mountain Valley, the participating artists, all of you who came out in the smoke to see the shows, and the Sangres Art Guild volunteers who helped make this possible!
