Happy New Year!

As the clock ticks down the remaining hours of 2009, we reflect upon all of the joys, successes and opportunities this year brought to us; CMMAG more than doubled its membership, became involved in a variety of artistic endeavors as a group, met challenges, hosted events, supported the creativity of our members, and had BIG fun in the process! 

We hope 2010 will bring even more of the same, as well as increased opportunities for creative expression, for sharing our talents with others, and more art, fun, food, and friendships found.

Stay tuned, and watch as it all unfolds....

Make & Take area (which allowed us to seat up to 16 guests at a time!) and the World of Art Challenge Gallery.  BOTH areas were hot attractions throughout the show!
