Our Musical Guests

Here are some highlights from last night's event.

We started off with a wonderfully intimate performance from Elizabeth Birr...

And later on, we jazzed it up with The Jason Spottek Trio...

We had a great time at the Furnace Show's Silent Auction Event last night. Thank You so much for giving the RAA such incredible music to enjoy!
Also, A BIG THANK YOU to all of our local visual artists who contributed to this show. We could not have done it without YOU!

Our Pick Of Pics

Out of the many photos taken on our Furnace Show's opening Night, these are our favorites!
Enjoy the pics and come on down for more bidding throughout the rest of the week.

On Gallery Night, here's what happened.

there were intent looks at the art...

we learned that John IS Riverwest (so doncha be messin')...

and he puts out a really good spread...

all artwork is still available for purchase...

people really enjoy 'found objects' in their art...

a good, diverse crowd came (some with fur hats)...

I managed to catch some behind-the-scenes tom-foolery from Theresa and Adam of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee...

I took this blurry shot, but I love the little girl's pink rain boots, and everyone is happy...

we got even more support (and tom-foolery) from 88Nine Radio Milwaukee...

I looked down the length of the gallery and here's what I saw...

and I saw these two dudes, deep in their artistic thoughts...

and lots of discussions that were going on...

at many points in the night, the gallery was this full...

however there is still time for you to quietly bid on our show...

Please come and join us on Saturday April 25th for the Silent Auction Event! We are open 12p-9p. There is still time to bid!
