Under $500 Opening Reception

The “Under $500” opening reception at Maryland Art Place (MAP) was not the party for being fashionably late…not if you were an art lover.

Scores of the savvy showed up at the party’s start time to have get first dibs.
This was a first-come first-served art sale, where everything displayed was under $500 and there for the selling.
