The "Off The Wall Gallery" Art Show
The show at the "Off The Wall Gallery" at the Millbrook Library this Wednesday night was really lovely. It was so much fun to see all my artwork hanging together in one really large room, very cool affect, something I often don't have room for at home and don't always think of. This has inspiried me though to hang work in groupings when possible, I like the look.
The walls are actually yellow but I had a devil of a time photographing them at night , it was quite hard so the result was that these 3 pictures were the only ones that actually don't hurt your eyes when you look at them.
The library is decorated for the holidays and the tables are out this weekend for the silent auction to help raise funds. Since so many of my photos are a bit of a strain on the peepers to look at, you'll have to imagine the rest of the room hung with my artwork.
I got to meet some really nice people that came to the reception, at least it was a lovely warm night with no snow on the ground.
**Thank you Ann, for purchasing "Floating", my dragonfly painting above. I believe you left right before I arrived, sorry to have missed you. I hope the painting makes you happy each time you look at it. **
Millbrook Library is about an hour north of where I live, a lovely town, great library and wonderful arts program. My paintings are there through the month of December so if you are in the Millbrook area, stop and pay a visit.
Last but certainly not least, I was blown away when I went to my mailbox this week (that doesn't often happen, unless there is a huge bill waiting for us, then it is not being blown away in a good sense)....anyway, as a customer of Cheap Joe's Art supplies, I received this postcard in the mail. While my household was not affected by the hurricane, tons of people in different areas were, some lost everything. Cheap Joe's is offering to help artists that were hit hard by the hurricane by replacing lost art supplies at no cost to the artist. Just click to enlarge if you would like to read the whole card. I all can say is "WOW OW WOW", this is so incredibly generous of Cheap Joe's to do this, thank you so much for keeping all the artists affected by this horrible hurricane in your thoughts Cheap Joe's.
