You can re-live the experience!  Now that the Artists' Breakfast Group has decamped from Murphy Hill Gallery, here are some (untagged) smiling faces to remind us of opening night.  And again, thanks to the Exhibition Committee (Sandra Holubow, Bill Whiteside, Ruyell Ho, Peter Jones) for organizing the show and making the bash a success.  They created a great night for us all, and may their many good deeds remain unpunished.

Thanks to Fred Holubow for the photos.
