February 2nd NLAPW Meetup at the Columbus Museum of Art
A number of us met up to tour the Van Gogh Exhbit at the Columbus Museum of Art last week.  How fortunate we were in Columbus to host this amazing high-profile show before heading down to Palm Beach, Florida! 

Some of us met up for lunch in the Schokko Cafe, we had a general informational talk about Vincent Van Gogh's life and work by our museum guide, Gieselle, and then we were set loose in the immense exhibit about Van Gogh and the artist's that inspired him throughout his life.

Many thanks to Darlene Yeager-Torre for organizing the event and for our wonderful tour guide, Gieselle.
