Ellen Shefi Exhibit

Ellen Shefi writes:

My art opening at MI FAMIGLIA restaurant in Oregon City was a lot of fun. Not only was the restaurant packed to capacity, many of my friends and patients came to enjoy the art and dinner. I received interest from a man eating dinner there - to buy one of my favorite pieces, and he returned again to the restaurant at closing. I sold some cards and 3 cutting boards which have my artwork on them. All in all - a wonderful evening.

For those who missed it - my artwork (17 pieces) will remain on the walls of the restaurant until June 1st.

What a wonderful opening we had tonight at Elements Gallery! The space is big and impressive, the art was arranged so beautifully, the music was wonderful, the food was plentiful and the wine flowed. But most of all, the PEOPLE kept coming!

We are so very blessed to have such wonderful friends in this community. It made us all feel so good to know that people support what we are doing. Thank-you to everyone who came to our reception tonight. Thank-you to Elements Gallery for housing the exhibit, and for their generous assistance. Thank-you to Laurie Fendel for heading up this whole exhibit, taking care of a million little details. Thank-you to Fred Harwin for his invaluable help in arranging all the art.
