It is hard to see the detail in this particular picture, but it has been one of my favorites. If I can make a confession, I have to admit it is one that I put in the gallery in part becasue I thought it isn't something that would appeal to many, but others could view it and it would still be around when I wanted to bring it home. But I have to say, I am so so very happy it is going to someone who it spoke to, so my voice continues on!
I would also like to take a moment to say that if you live in my local area and have not had the opportunity to visit Chimayo, in Perkasie, PA, then you have to put it on your To Do list. The gallery and gift shop is filled with amazing pieces of creative work from local artists and you would be hard pressed not to find something you like and that fits your pocketbook at the same time.
They hold a variety of different events throughout the month - fun workshops, First Friday and a book club to mention a few.
Pricilla & Alix, the Gallery owners are awesome! When you walk into the shop they make you feel so at home as if you have known them a long time. They are strong supporters of the local artist community, and I'm honored to be able to show my art there.
Well, since I'm on the subject of awesome local Galleries to visit, I don't want to leave out Joanne's Frame Shop and Gallery in Quakertonw, PA
Like the owners of Chimayo, Joanne is another wonderful gallery owner- friendly, fun loving and a full supporter of the arts. Her work as a framer is the best. So make a day of it- visit both of these fabulous galleries- you won't be disappointed and you will definitely be going back for more.
So as the holiday season approaches, think Local, shop Local, and support these wonderful establishments. They are the model for what small businesses should be.
Thanks Alix, Pricilla & Joanne- you are the absolute best! I appreciate all you do for us!
