2011 started with our remodeling of the gallery...lots of changes happened and it took us the whole month of January. We've streamlined the space, cleaned out the cobwebs. We opened with new hours and moved the office to the upstairs. We love it and hope everyone else does as much as we do.
Our first show of the year was the 9th annual 100 Artist show. 100 clay artists sent plates to the gallery in support of CERF.
Tina and Roz celebrated their birthdays with handmade party hats and fun.
New shops were opened on State Street...we loved the cotton candy!
One of our favorite artists had a baby (Kim Hamblin and baby Cash).
We visited our art that had been placed in public spaces.
We had our 5th Door Show
We met clients in our Gallery 2 space.
We met with ceramic artists at Mahonia Hall (Governors Mansion) and curated a display of their beautiful work. We also had lunch with the First Lady.
