We had hundreds of children in the gallery for trick-or-treat this Halloween. There was a steady stream or witches, fairies, elephants, cows, dogs, Mary Poppins, Dr Spock, Spacemen and little mermaids. Ten women artists Kara Taub, Susan Haskell, Mannig Gurekian, Linda Fenster and Anthea Brown were on hand to give out the candy. Kara as a kindly witch and Linda in her Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night Halloween costume, complete with a very realistic blackbird on her shoulder. The stream of children never ceased and Susan had to run out for four more big bags of candy to meet the rush. It was a lot of fun but by quarter of six we were completely out of candy and were forced to give out black plastic spiders and balloons, to the relief of many of the parents. Next year we will be ready for the onslaught!
