This year's event was a challenge in that we were not able to hold the event in its prior venue - the national museum. After months of scouting we ended up at the Puericultorio - a mouthful and fabulous old complex of buildings on the grounds of an immense orphanage housing approximately 500 children.
After much work, repairing floors, painting walls and installing electricity via cables to our generators, the galleries came alive and from October 2-5 we held a wonderful (and financially successful) art sale and show.
The art was not only in the galleries but also in the center courtyard through the use of lighting, music and projection onto an enormous fabric cube that had been constructed in the courtyard:
And, of course, this gave us the opportunity to get dressed up and join with friends for several fun evenings. Here we are with Ana Maria and Brian - our neighbors and friends:
And art purchases were part of the fun - here is one of the several (7 actually) pieces that have been added to our "collection".
