Lighthouse for the Blind Art Show
An art opening in the basement of San Francisco's City Hall was sponsored Tuesday evening by the neighboring Lighthouse for the Blind and the Visually Impaired (click here).
I attended the art party with my good friend Louisa, who volunteers with an elderly blind lady in the East Bay.
For some reason, I was feeling ridiculously clumsy this evening and kept bumping into people. "Sorry, I didn't see you," went through my brain but thankfully not my lips.
The best part about the annual event is the guide dogs which plopped themselves all over the marble hall.
It gave the affair a nice hippieish, bohemian feel.
Plus, the dogs got to make a few new acquaintances...
...while their artist companions got to glory in their acclaim.
CBS Channel 5 Entertainment Personality Liam Meyclem was a mercifully brief host as we drank wine...
...and talked to one of my favorite artists in the exhibit, Michael Jameson from Santa Barbara who had a whole series of "solar etchings" of personal heroes...
...including the wolf and the raven.
