On Saturday, April 14th, I was join by many Cocoon Gallery artists, customers and friends to celebrate 1 year in Historic Downtown Apex. Once again, the refreshments table featured a beautiful cake from Buttercream's Bakery as well as goodies from the artists. So often artists that we know have hidden talents. Such is the case with Bob Batura, one of the Gallery's woodworkers, who plays guitar, harmonica, and sings and brought his band - Filmore Valley Boys to play blue grass music for the crowd. Thank you to all who were at the party and all who have supported the gallery over the last year.
