First Friday, September 2nd – Please join us!
Wow! Six years, it’s so hard to believe that it has been this long.
I vividly remember the excitement of getting ready for our grand opening on September 2, 2016. It was the last night I saw my father-in-law Don, I was catching my breath before the big event when I heard him laughing next door at Zeppe’s so I ran over to say hi, he give me a big hug, and kiss, and wished me great success. Sadly four days later he left this world, but the encouragement he gave to me still resonates with me every day. In those six years, so many amazing and sad happenings have taken place, especially the loss of Barb and Chuck whose vision is what made this amazing gallery possible. Though Covid, personal challenges, health issues, and all the monumental changes in the world, I/we are still here! Joyfully celebrating the talent and art of artist local and nearby.
It was with all this in mind that I decided that this year’s challenge would be faith. It is so easy to lose, dismiss, or just turn your back on. But I find that believing in what I don’t know, can not control, or sometimes even understand strengthens my own convictions. And here we are, I am hoping that you find deep meaning in another person’s perspective, their creation, their work of art presented here for you, where each artist is asking you to look, to see their interpretation, thoughts, and feelings about the subject of faith.
Whatever lies ahead for us is truly unknown, life is complicated and I just want to share with you some joy and faith knowing that with an open heart and mind together we can enjoy every day and every person in our lives, for the lessons taught and learned are always easier to see in retrospect.
