Reception Night—November 14th, 2014

Our reception nights are the best, and they are such fun! It was great seeing Jari de Ham, with her “Brush Flying, Ink Dancing” Chinese brush watercolor & ink exhibit, talking with so many customers looking at her work, finding it so amazing and spiritual too, as one customer shared.

Our exhibiting craft show artists (14 Central Coast crafters) were also there, and posed in front of their wonderful, varied display.

November Shows—Setup Day

As we always do on the the 30th of the month, we did our “setup day” today for our exhibiting artists—this month it’s Jarien de Ham with her wonderful Chinese brush watercolor and ink paintings, and then we have our Craft Show 2014, with out Central Coast Crafters—of which there are many! They are showing beautiful works in wood, silk, fused glass, blown glass, jewelry in all media, pottery, fabric, and stone.

Setup day is also a day where new artists joining the gallery for the first time come in to set up their work, and many of the other artists come it to switch around their work. It’s always a busy and fun day, and the artists have lunch together at a nearby restaurant.

Here are a few pictures from this month:
