The reception for ceramicist Leslie Thompson was very successful last night. The sparkling wine flowed freely and Duffy’s appetizers were fabulous – we ran out of both between 6:00 and 7:00 pm. We sold about a dozen of her “final” ceramics. There are some left for those who want one of these collectible keepsake works of art. Leslie’s ceramics will be on display in the gallery for the rest of this week and in to next Saturday’s Art Alliance of Idyllwild’s members’ show (mark your calendar for this event that will be from 6-8 pm) after which her prices will go up as no more of these fine pieces will be created.
