Thanks to members of the arts council who put pieces in this show. The staff of St. John's was very pleased with the result. A very special thanks to Abby Gazley, who hung the work, Mary Ketchen, Bev Lombardo, and June Peterman who helped transport and hang it. Also, a lot of prep paper work was done by Bev and Mary. It takes a team to take on something like this show. And we appreciate our hard working, underpaid, oh wait, not paid team!
