On Friday, April 12th, the Market Street Art Spot blossomed with warmth as visitors came to view the wonderfully colorful works of Isabel Zaldivar.  On the keyboard, Kathy Reichenberger provided a perfect tonal backdrop for the evening.  With tasty temptations on the refreshment table *(Joan’s scrumtuous dip recipe posted below), a great time was enjoyed by all who stopped by. MSAS sincerely appreciates this month’s sponsor, Martin Pallet, Inc.
