Last night was the annual Clay Ball art auction to benefit the Salem Art Association.  Money was raised, art changed hands, friends were greeted…

some chose to wear “virtual” hats…(including Clay Ball originator Mary Lou Zeek who was thinking about her upcoming pop-up art show BLINK coming February 23))

And, of course, there was a hat competition judged by Janet Ogdahl (who owns the nice shop Ma Valise)

but I think everybody in the room pretty much agreed that the winner HAD to be this guy…Andy?…with this topical hat for Salem (and as Janet pointed out, the theme was “Over the Top”…)…we’re having a little trouble with owls, just now, here in Salem.

No more photos…the lights in this dining room are orange subverting my photographic urge…it was fun…
