Vista Lights 2007 in pictures


(Above: Pat Gilmartin’s ceramic Catfish with a trio of oil panels by Stephen Chesley.)

The artists of Gallery 80808/Vista Studios have hung a beautiful exhibition of recent work for the annual Vista Lights celebration. The Thursday night reception was marvelous. The show will hang through November 27. The gallery is generally open throughout the midday as well as in the late afternoon and early evening…basically, whenever artists are working in their studios. It is always a good idea to call (803) 252-6134 before venturing out…but, if you are in the area, please just drop by. To learn more about Gallery 80808/Vista Studios or any of the artists working there, please visit www.gallery80808vistastudios.com.
