Then, I happened to be there on July 1 -- the day the exhibit opened -- to hang wall tags when in came a collector eager to purchase two paintings. She was trying to figure out how to reach me to make the purchase -- but luck/good timing simplified matters.

I asked how she found out about the exhibit. It was the photo and caption in élan Magazine's July issue's Calendar pages that drew her to come see "Serendipity." Plus, she previewed the exhibit and many of my other pieces through a long look at my web site: www.JillBanks.com.
You're welcome to come to the exhibit any time the library is open (see the events page on my web site for library hours/days). The meeting room -- where the pieces are hanging -- is almost always busy with community groups and library events -- but go in and see the artwork no matter what's happening in there.
The official opening reception is coming up: this Saturday, July 20, 1-4pm at the Great Falls Library. I'm thinking about what goodies/treats to bring for that day. What foods go with "Serendipity?" I REALLY hope to see you there.
The next official event date there is a Painting Demonstration on Saturday, August 10, 1-4pm -- same place -- where I'll be painting two young ballerinas. RSVP to that event -- yeses only -- through my web site. Come cheer my models and me on -- your enthusiasm would be greatly appreciated.

Painting Demonstration (Painting ballerinas!!!): Saturday, August 10, 1-4pm. RSVP -- yeses only -- to the painting demonstration through my web site.
