Top 5 Picks-Big Easel Preview Party-Mallory Page Chastant, Kathryn Crosby, Caroline Chunn McCarthy, Camilla Drobish, Ramsey Ayers, & bonus Hope Hebert

I've been asked by a couple of area art collectors what my top 5 picks are of the pieces that will be for sale at the Big Easel Preview Party this Friday night.

The Preview Party is where the 60 artists participating in The Big Easel choose their absolute best piece to be on display and for sale for the area art collectors, patrons, & sponsors of The Big Easel.
