I will take the keys to my new Studio Gallery in about 2 weeks. Needless to say, my mind is spinning with details…all in a good sense…while my pocket book deletes at an alarming rate. I have met some very talented people in my travels the last few weeks. Everyone that meets a certain criteria will be asked to join. I have selected to begin with a few unknown Artists that specialize in jewelry, textiles, acrylic and watercolor, fusion glass, sculpture, basketry and photography and have been so very pleased with the diverse backgrounds they come from. They are all great, unique people and I am truly blessed to have connected with them. I will also add to this 2 Teachers who talents lie in drawing, painting and photography to allow the locals a chance to learn in a personal setting with no more than 10 students per class. Probably a class for the youngsters and one for the adults…depending on what we have time for. I’ve also ordered some really crazy toy-like cameras for folks to purchase. They can do things like “split screen” and “Warhol” your photos. I can’t wait until they get here!

I’ve also been able to re-join with an old friend who is a cabinet builder extroidinare. He has been so very patient with all my changes and my perfections as we’ve worked on many projects in the past. I can be quite picky when it comes to how something should look (including myself) and Anuvue will be no exception. He and I connected instantly, exchanging ideas and finding solutions for a very small building. I picked out some very unique materials to work with as I want it to be fresh and modern in styling. I will also be investing in at least one, possible more large flat panels to show off the work of other Photographers. I have selected a few Photographers that aren’t even in this Country but was so impressed by their unknown talent…well, they just have to be included. I have a few more American Artists in mind as well. (Alan and yb…are ya out there?) 😉

I’ve made connections (and friends) with 4 Galleries outside of my city, but within 5 miles or less… and we all look forward to forming a relationship that works together for the benefit of everyone. In the meantime, I have signs to produce, graphics to complete, vendors to annoy and banners and lightboxes to be made…yikes! I’m working on botanicals at the moment…I have an idea in my head…uh oh :0
