The Gala Opening Reception was held on February 11 at Central Library and featured live performances from musicians and entertainers, activities for kids, a fashion show directed by Alpha Blackburn, and more. The artists' exhibit will remained on display at Central Library through March 25. Meet the Artists is an annual event - we look forward to seeing you in 2024!
