As posted recently, if you come by the gallery, you'll notice a lot of changes for the upcoming season.
The front window wall is now a bright blue. We're introducing some new artists and we're in the midst of displaying small works from them as well as our in-house artists. (More to follow on our Small Works Show soon.) A new display showcases some different work for Gallery 9, like Crystal Hanehan's figures and my miniature pastels.
Along with that change, and answering our design challenge posting, Ann Gorbett has created the new blog banner you see. See Dave there? He's saying "art" rather than "arf." Love it, Ann. Nicely done and thank-you for your time in its creation.
Yesterday at the gallery, Julie and I focused our efforts in the classroom getting it spiffed up for a season of activity. We have art classes there but I've been toying with other ideas, too.
Would you be interested in some workshops where you'd create a hand-made piece you could give as a gift? I know I'd take Nancy MacCallum's jewelry-making workshop or maybe a collage workshop or a frame-your-own-small-memento workshop with Julie.
We're working hard during this difficult economy to meet your needs in creative ways which don't break all of our budgets. Your feedback is always welcome either here in a comment or to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thank-you for reading!
