Southwest Gallery at 45 years

Congratulations to Southwest Gallery as they celebrate 45 years of providing fine art for the North Texas area...a pretty amazing accomplishment.  Located in Dallas, the gallery hosted a two-day spectacular event on 8-9 September with many artists in attendance and many new works on display. The event also featured several painting demonstrations, wonderful hors d'oeuvres and beverages, all enjoyed to the cool jazz of internationally known saxophonist, Benny Golbin.

Saturday evening, Bob Malenfant (gallery owner) and staff shared a very special evening and dinner with those artists in attendance. Many words of appreciation were expressed by artists and gallery.
