Never a dull moment here at the gallery and here’s a quick update:
We’re having fun hanging for our new show which opens on Thursday. It’s the second year in a row that we’ve presented Arts and Ale – a lively exhibit that showcases great new art from our gallery artists to the toe-tapping sounds of one of our favorite local bands, Smokey's Farmland Band. We like to wash it all down with some microbrewery ale…and we’re expecting good art, good music and good suds will make for a fun evening.
And, here’s a little sneak peak of what will be on the walls:
Meanwhile, across the pond in sunny and glorious Provence, Nancy Franke is hosting the first of two one-week painting workshops. Those lucky artists…their days will be filled with a perfect mélange of activities that will run the gamut from antiquing to wandering the local markets, digging into heavenly two-hour lunches…and plenty of excellent painting advice from our own Nancy Franke. Nancy is the perfect storm of an instructor: immensely talented but able to convey techniques in a humble, fun and spontaneous fashion. We can only imagine the goings-on going on!
Finally, a quick visit to the future home of Huff Harrington Home was exciting: walls are primed, electrical is going in and today the bones of our checkout counter will be put together. Ann and Linda have just returned from a buying trip in Paris and are over the moon about some treasures they have found.
Stay tuned and ta ta…
