CHEERS!  The members of Artistic License would like to thank everyone who came to the fabulous Artisans Ball last month at the Green Room in San Francisco.  The event celebrated the Guild's 30th anniversary and raised $4,500 for the Bayview Opera House and its community and arts programs.

Here are some highlights from this swell affair!  Thanks to Adrian Mendoza for the photography.
