Bagel On!

Yesterday three of our ORA members participated in the first annual "Bagel-On!" street fair at Congregation Kol Ami in Vancouver, Washington.

Eddy Shuldman sold her striking glassware, Esther Liberman featured her beadwork jewelry and Judaica, and Nitzan Lilie showed his amazing blacksmithed objects d'art. Diane Fredgant was also represented in absentia, her hand-painted silks gracing Eddy & Esther's booth.

It was a HOT day, and strong breezes wreaked havoc with our exhibits, but it was wonderful meeting and schmoozing with so many people. For a first effort, the event committee at Kol Ami did a great job of planning, getting the right number of food vendors, great live music, and marketing to the community. Hopefully the attendance next year will be even better!

Events like this are fun, because old friends drop by and delight us, while new contacts are made, and you never know where they will lead.  We encourage all of our members & guest artists to get out there in the world and SHOW YOUR STUFF!!

Our event coordinators Brauna Ritchie and Sharon Segal did a great job organizing our first TRUNK SHOW! 

We are grateful to our host The Mittleman Jewish Community Center for everything they did to support this art sale!
