Just for fun I took a bunch of photos of the current show at the Gallery. This is in one room at the Gallery called the Featured Artist Room. It is a long, narrow room with skylights. Usually we feature one artist or perhaps two or three whose works fit together well. In this particular show we invited all of our artists to create something with flowers for celebrating spring and summer.
I've made the pix small to fit them in, but if you click on them, they should enlarge for closer view. You'll be surprised at some of the details!
First are miscellaneous shots around the room.
This chair/stool doesn't have flowers, but it has some leaves. I put it in because it is made by the wood artist I mentioned who made most of the wooden features in the house I visited a few days ago. This chair, like the doors of that house, is completely wood. No metal, i.e., nails, etc.
Some absolutely exquisite earrings
Silk painted scarves by the artist whose scarf I bought at the auction
A felted hat
Wall hanging of linen and dried flowers
Wooden furniture. Look at the interesting little "feet" on this table.
Wooden bench Same artists as the above table.
Sculpted clay doll
Photography (no, not mine)
Multi-medium wall art. This piece has carved wood (the "rocks" and "bamboo sticks" on oil painted canvas.
This in one of the most bright, lively and diverse shows we've had. Everyone who has come in just loves it. I swear, you can not walk out after seeing this without a smile on your face!
The Gallery is full of an eclectic mix as reflected by this one room. It is absolutely NOT one of those minimalist galleries. Our inventory has a little of everything imaginable. There are wind chimes made of horse shoes, tortilla warming bowls made of lariats, ceramics that are functional or just beautiful, wearable art from jewelry to hats to scarves to felted and beaded purses, part on canvas and on rocks, gourds that have been etched, carved or painted, etc. And of the nicest things about the Gallery is this .... 98% of the art is local, from artists in this county. A local showplace in every sense of the words.
Anyway, it is a really fun place to visit. So ..... come visit!! What's holding you up??
