New Gallery Space On Inspiration Avenue

First Light

Today I took a trunkful of my work to The Decatur Gallery and Market, hoping they would want to represent me. This is one of my new paintings, called "First Light." It's an 18" X 20" mixed media piece that I finished yesterday.

I met with Patrick Dennis, the owner, and I was thrilled that he was kind enough to invite me to join the gallery. The Decatur Market & Gallery is co-operative venue for emerging artists and artisans of Georgia. It's located in the former Boswell Gallery space at 153 Ponce de Leon Place, Decatur and is staffed by the artists themselves. The Gallery showcases modern abstract paintings, landscapes, mixed media, jewelry, pottery and textiles.

I so want to go around this gallery. Those oil portraits in particular were calling out to me. Shame that you could never really call being in the UK 'in the area'. Never mind, I shall be there in spirit admiring all your wonderful works :) Congratualations and the best of luck on making many new sales and admirers.
