SCENE AT SURTEX 2015

July 6, 2015
       

It’s like Christmas: months of planning, preparation, and projecting success…Then, suddenly, it’s SURTEX time! Three days that put the other 362 to the test. Three days that set the course for the next 365. Three days of art, excitement, camaraderie, and professional growth. Here’s how they looked through our camera’s eye:
