Our first animation night took place at Roos Arts Gallery in Rosendale, New York, on Saturday, July 28. It started at 7pm, but the room was packed to max by 5 minutes after 7. It wasn’t a large space, but the turn-out exceeded our prediction. Those who couldn’t enter the screening room stayed in the reception room, or went out for drinks, and came back when we showed the collection the second time. Despite the heat and cramped situation, people looked happy and pleased. Needless to say, we were ecstatic!
In addition to showing animation clips, we were very fortunate to have talented Lucia Legnini performing her song with ukulele during the intermission. She was absolutely delightful, and had so much grace even in the hot, crowded condition. Thank you, Lucia! We love you.
