For the past couple of months Christie has had her art hanging in Soulshine Studio in Corning (website). Her official gallery opening was Saturday, December 4, 2010, which coincided with Corning Sparkle, and it was a great time of music, art and festivities! The Aces and Acettes performed during the evening and just about knocked everyone's socks off! Here are some photos from the wonderful evening:

Christie with 'Canal Street Trio' - one of my favorites. :) I have to say that Christie was an awesome sport considering she was on the very (very) cusp of coming down with strep throat (which, unfortunately, lasted for several days).
A lovely holiday display.

They are so great!

Ann offers several different jewelry making classes at Soulshine Studio - I know Christie and I will be returning for one of them soon!
Ann has her studio so beautifully decorated...

Here's to a creative 2011!
