Art on the Edge Reception at Last

The Boatworks was filled with people tonight looking for some edgy fun. Even the food was part of the fun. That cream cheese skull and cupcakes were among the many treats brought in my BAC members, plus we had a few items provided by local businesses Sweet! and Matisse.

A good crowd was on hand tonight to enjoy the reception and to check out the 68 artworks on display.

The back room not only had some cool art on the walls, but also Dr Void and the Death Machines providing some rockin' music on our stage.

Meanwhile, local artist Doug Z (below) was set up outside, doing demonstrations of his spray paint and stencil technique.
