As was the case with last month’s Arts Alive! exhibit at ExNovo, the attendance was robust. Over 300 visitors were counted during the day-long show. Spirits were high and conversation was lively. The theme for the event was the Art of Chili. Five galleries and businesses offered tastings of chili prepared by Corrales chefs. Everyone reported strong traffic. Event planners counted this event as a grand success and a continuation of what is hoped to be a long-lived, monthly activity.
