    What a great facility for this event. Renee gave a great lecture on her works and inspirations and outook, setting me up to more fully understand and enjoy the exhibition. The reception following was very food, all healthy foods and followed by King Cake. She signed copies of the show catalog for quite a while after, speaking a length with each person. Glad I got to know this Artist in this way.
