Thank You for a Successful Joy of Art Show 2023



I want to thank everyone who helped get the word out, volunteered, bought art, and/or was a sponsor.

“It Takes a Village” and the “Village of Bnai Israel” stepped up to make the Invitational Joy of Art Show a huge success. I was blown away with the number of people attending and purchasing art.

Below is a list of everyone who helped make this event a success. Hopefully I haven’t left anyone out.
