The mood was festive at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine tonight as it held the opening reception for its first art show, featuring a combination of artwork by regular peeps and some of the best in the region, a democratic approach that pleased many of us.

Some of the artwork was amateurish, but the bulk was good and it was all entertaining and of value, as the appreciative and large crowd demonstrated.

Among those whose work was shown was that of slain University of Virginia student Morgan Harrington, whose father, Dan Harrington, is a physician at Carilion Clinic. He was in attendance, proudly showing off his daughter's artwork.
