The Grand Opening
Yesterday, Saturday, April 10, we had the 'Grand Opening' of Second Saturday Studio. Boy, was it ever fun! We got there early, a little after 8:00 a.m., to prepare for the day and left at 6:00 p.m. Lots of food, door prizes, friends coming by, family too, and many, many visitors. It was just great!
I thought I'd show you some photos I took. Most times, it was too crowded to take photos, so I took some during the few slow minutes we had. So many more could be shown, but Kelly is doing a fine job of showing just about everything on the studio blog, so check it out if you'd like to see more on the opening and more of the art. She has been showcasing each artist, so check out the previous posts there also.
That's Kelly with the blonde pony tail standing just inside the door....by this time, she had already just about run her legs off....but, just like her, always has time to stop and visit with people. Being a realtor and a 'people person', she has a talent for it.
Take a look at the artwork....such a variety. One of my favorite new things, but not shown in any of these photos are the beautiful Shaker style boxes made by a local man. I've picked out one for Mother's Day....well, why not? Christie, Beth, Sandy and Micah (in light green sweater by the back wall) are shown doing their part to visit with each other and visitors.....one thing I enjoyed was hearing the artists talk not only about their own work, but each other's work as well. It was very exciting.
The other day I took the time to do something I rarely do....paint a piece of furniture. Here you will see the black cabinet I painted to house my own artwork......not the best photo, but you get the idea.
I hope you enjoyed seeing our new place....we had a great day and hope for many more. Do visit someplace like this in your town...you just never know who you will meet or what you will find. Have a great new week! take care, pat
