Photos from the Nokomis Gallery Event

Hey Everyone!
Wanted to share some photos from the Nokomis Gallery event that we had on December 17th. Lots of people attended and helped us celebrate the opening of the gallery and showed their support for CAFAC. Many of the artists that are currently featured in the gallery were in attendance and mingled with shoppers. We also had some of the coolest jazz holiday tunes around, provided by Minneapolis duo Charmin & Shapira.

If you weren't able to attend, don't be discouraged! The gallery is open again tomorrow night, December 22nd, from 6 - 9pm. New gallery hours will be posted in early January.
