Reception Night for May’s Shows

What fun we had tonight. We had so much positive feedback for all the artists tonight and such a great crowd of visitors to the gallery all day long, and they continued to come into the gallery throughout the night for our reception. Mother’s Day weekend really brought in the customers all week long. Our guest and featured artists George Asdel, “Jo” Swanberg, and Virginia Mack each sold original work and cards and folios.

The gallery artists always have such fun talking with so many other artists and art lovers, and when there are new gallery members it’s the first chance to meet them for many of us!

Setting up May’s Shows

“Show setup day” is always the 30th of the month—this is the day when our exhibiting artists set up their shows, new members set up their spaces, and older members bring in new work and re-arrange their walls. This is always a busy and hectic day, but great fun for the artists to spend time together. Hungry artists who are around join the “lunch bunch,” going to a favorite local eatery to take a needed lunchtime break.

This month the gallery was setting up for our exhibiting Artists, Jo (Ardella) Swanberg and Virginia Mack (In the Moment), and George Asdel (Paintings, Poems, & Whimsy).
