Third Summer Sunday Didn't Happen

Due to the hurricane warnings. I had to cancel the third "Summer Sunday".  So disappointed.  But these things just happen so we make the best of it.  Sorry for any inconvenience.  Hope it doesn't happen next year.

2nd Summer Sunday

This past Sunday was the Second "Summer Sunday" at my gallery.  Just like the first, the people who came were friendly and enjoyed signing up for the "FREE ART"drawing.  I just finished calling all of the winners.  The artwork they have won really is a nice addition to the home or a nice gift.  August 26 is the third and last "Summer Sunday" for 2012.  It will be another fun time for everyone who comes to the Gallery.  Remember the date, August 26 from 1 - 4 pm. You don't have to be present to win but you do have to sign up on Sunday.  See you then!

Summer Time in the Tropics

Just an amazing change in the demographics of SWFL when "season" ends.  Traffic is so nice and sparse, people are not rushed and the stores are not filled.  I think the sound level even diminishes.  However, that being said, it is always a joy to see the tourists return - they bring an incredible energy to the area that I thrive on.  My studio and gallery are filled with special orders ready for me to emerge myself in.  So much fun and such a challenge. Every day is an affirmation of what I love to do.  I am very grateful.

Off Site Exhibit and Sale

April 25th went well and the exhibit is still hanging.  Hopefully, new folks will see it!  Things are winding down now.  "Season" is over and each day more tourists return north.  I really enjoy the increased time I can work in my studio.  I have so many ideas!  But,it's always so good to have the "snowbirds" return.  They bring a lot of energy to the area.

Off-Site Exhibit and Sale

I am collaborating with another business (Mark Generales, Sr. VP Southern Trust Financial)  to present an art exhibit and sale in their offices.  Yep. off-site.  This is really challenging.  We will do a combined reception Wednesday April 25 with food, wine and violin music from 4 - 6:30 pm.  I will be offering a 20% discount on all artwork purchased during this exhibit.  Four other artists are joining the exhibit.  Should be a great way to thank everybody for a successful season.  Can hardly wait to see how this turns out.

The Opening Reception for Artist Barbara Brenton on Friday evening at the gallery was a huge suucess.  The poetry (ekphrasis) presented by Elaine Plummer was a delightful addition to the event.  Great fun with lots of good people, good conversation and refreshments.

March Featured Artist

It's hard to believe that this Friday,tomorrow,will be the last opening reception for an artist in my gallery until next year.  Barbara Brenton will exhibit her mixed media artwork,"All About Color".  Her work is monochromatic and explores the value range of one color.  Also,her friend,Elaine Plummer,  will accompany the artwork with "Ekphrakis" - poetry that has been inspired by the artwork and expands the viewer's understanding and appreciation of it.  Elaine will present 2 poems at 6:45.  Should be a wonderful evening.
