We had a grand time yesterday during our "Art of Travel" Zoom program sharing artwork collected by members during their US and world travels. Given that we are pretty much stuck at home right now, it was very nice to see the unique artworks collected, reminisce about past trips and get some inspiration for future travels. Penelope and Alexandra donned their Mongolian and Greek headwear as we wrapped up the meeting - they looked fabulous! 😁
