On Friday evening, July 7, the Hayward Arts Council held its reception for the Arts & Letters show. More than ninety artists participated in the show. The reception was very well attended, with artists and their families and friends on hand to celebrate art and artists. Awards were presented for First and Second Place and 5 Honorable Mentions. Attendees had fun trying their hand at brush calligraphy at a table demo.

Below are some photos of the festivities. If you missed the reception, fear not. The show will remain up in the Community Gallery in the Hayward Historical Society Museum of History and Culture through Sunday, September 10. Click HERE for location and hours of the gallery.
