New Year, New Look January 20 2017, 0 Comments
New year, new look and a brand new schedule for the 2017 show season! We here at Art Speaks Gallery are incredibly excited to share with you all the many changes that we’ve made over the two weeks that we were closed. The most noticeable change would be the color we’ve added to the gallery. The goldenrod color has been changed to a breezy, beautiful “Kentucky Haze” by Benjamin Moore and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the impact it has made. We updated the color of the front doors to “Smokey Mountain” by Benjamin Moore, which is easy on the eyes and makes the brass fixtures “pop”. We’re in the process of revamping our jewelry cases with updating the exteriors and installing some driftwood displays. The built-in benches in the front windows have been stripped down to the natural wood and will, eventually, be stained to match the benches in the gallery and some of the aluminum and glass displays have become copper and glass displays.
Our two work weeks certainly went by quickly and we’ve still got some gallery improvements tucked away for the future, but things are really coming together and, already, we’ve received several compliments on our new look. We hope you’ll stop in to the gallery to take a look at all of the changes and stay a while to look at some of the new artwork we’ve got up on the walls.
Speaking of artwork in the gallery, next Friday (27th), you’ll want to join us from 5-7pm as we celebrate the opening of our “Storytellers” show, which you can find out more about here. Drinks and light refreshments will be served, several artists participating in the show will be here and Dale Peterson (gallery/teaching artist) will be reading from one of his books. It’s the perfect pre-dinner event! The next day, teaching artist, Doris Hackworth, will be giving a demo on the potter’s wheel beginning around 11:30.
Just a brief note: we’ll be posting gallery updates, articles about the art world, Art Speaks show & event information and interviews with gallery artists every Friday. So be sure to check back with us!
