Last Wednesday, artist Sharon Menary's theme for food and dress was Moroccan. Art enthusiasts turned out in droves.
In keeping with the traveling artists' motif, she provided a map of the world with pins in it. Each pin indicated a painting's location, making it convenient for viewers to pair the painting with the country or region where it was inspired and created.
One portrait, for which a past real estate client of hers had posed some time ago, resembled him so closely that this uncanny likeness drew the lion's share of attention all evening. How much attention? So much, in fact, he had to buy it.
Several pieces were sold that evening.
