If you were among the guests who attended the opening of the One Woman Show by painter Vicki Johnston, you not only saw her wonderful paintings, but you were fed well! Molly's Table, the restaurant owned by Donna Nagle in Paola, Kansas, just south of Greater Kansas City, is in a great old building, just a few doors off of the town square, was decked out with Johnston's paintings and Molly's desserts and Somerset Ridge's wines! Needless to say, a great time was had by all!
Vicki was present, looking beautiful as usual, dressed in black and white. Also present were the Somerset Ridge Painters, talking to the guests about the artist's work. Soon the restaurant was full of very happy people, enjoying the paintings, the food and the wine....great combination!
The one painting that everyone seemed to see as the "Star of the Show" was a 40" x 40" painting of a rooster with style and attitude! He doesn't have a name, so if you can send me a suggestion, I will forward it to Vicki. He deserves a name! send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Iif you are looking for a fun place to have lunch, make it an outing to Paola, Kansas! Molly's Table will be there waiting for you. The paintings will be hanging for the next few weeks, before Molly's closes for 2 weeks for a much deserved vacation! When they reopen, who knows, maybe Vicki will have a few new pieces added to those hanging now! After all, as the day ended yesterday, there were 5 paintings that went to new homes!
