Art Show 2015

We held our 5th annual art show this past October.  We added our first car show to the Saturday portion of the 2-day event.  Over 250 visitors had the chance to enjoy and purchase the various art pieces,  Christmas crafts, and Chinese auction items.  The two days also featured special music and drama vignettes.  On Saturday we offered workshops on various types of art.  Some of the highlights are show below.

Our art group, CCADA, recently held its 5th annual art show–combining it with its first car show.  We had artists of all ages, a wide variety of media, a new featured addition of many Christmas crafts, dramatic vignettes, music, and, of course, the car show.  The turnout of visitors who oohed and aahed at what they saw and heard and noted that they wished they had the talent of the various artists. But, to paraphrase Will Rogers, “We can’t all be heroes.  There also has to be somebody to clap for them.”

It is the complete and eternal blueprint for our lives–the ultimate “self-help” book because the Author knows every aspect of “you.”. You may feel defeated, depressed, disillusioned, sure that no one appreciates you? How can you change that?

The Butterfly Effect

I am neither a physicist nor a mathematician, but from what I have read about the “butterfly effect” is that it has to do with a seemingly inconsequential event or incident having momentous consequences. The “ripple effect” is similar in that it states that a single incident or occurrence may have consequences and ramifications beyond the scope of the original phenomenon. Apparently, these two concepts are part of “chaos theory.”
