Farrago Gallery Show
The FAACE show at Farrago Gallery was and is a great success! Thank you to everyone who participated. Many of our fabulous FAACE members came to the opening reception (and some brought food) even though they weren't in the show!
From Corrine Galla, owner of Farrago Gallery in Newnan:
You were all wonderful! Thank you so very much for all your efforts, hard work and FOOD! Everyone had a fabulous time, and the feedback on the show has all been so positive. I can't say enough good things to express my thanks for helping to keep Farrago Gallery the freshest gallery in Newnan! You all deserve a big hug!Best,
