Web site changes

Made some changes (mainly to the Welcome page) - reduced the font size and removed the photo for now - due to readability issues at various screen resolutions and with different browsers. Newbie error :) Hopefully this takes care of it .

Juried Exhibit hanging

Belated thanks to Ghislaine and her crew of volunteers for doing a great job hanging the images at the Arts Centre. Ongoing construction work and less cables to hang on than expected made it a challenge!
