Joy Reed Belt and M.J. Van Deventer were hostesses for a brunch at JRB Art at the Elms. They invited friends, artists and writers to drop in after the Prix de West festivities at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
Large bouquets of sunflowers decorated the gallery and the food table. Chicken salad on croissants, egg and rice casserole, fruits, sausages and bacon, chocolate bundt cake, cookies, and Van Deventer’s famous rum cake were among the food items that were served.
Among the guests were Lou Kerr, Jennifer and Drew Duggan, William Kalwick jr., Doug Wade, Shirley Thomas-Smith, Doug Hyde, Maureen and Randal Dutra, Ross Matteson, Beverly and Vic Lyster, Brenda and Tony Eubanks, Betty and Herschal Crow, Dana and Randall Shadid, Robin and Brad Krieger, Donna Hopper, Russell Swartz, Dr. Kathleen Moore, Shari Morrison and Joan Gilmore and Al McLaughlin.
