Saturday night was wonderful, not only did I have a date with my husband that started at the movie theatre at 4:00 (Guardians Of The Galaxy, his choice!) We also got to enjoy an evening of art. Proceeds from sales are split & the artist gets half for each piece sold. Numbers are drawn & then you can choose from anything in the gallery space. Both of my pieces were picked which makes me happy to think they have found new homes. You can also introduce yourself to artists and collectors which is a great way to meet people in the community. I often hear names of artists & know that I like their work, but have no idea what they look like to actually give them a compliment in person.
Here are a few pieces that caught my eye. The wooden standees are by a local artist Lucky Jackson shop online here.
During the preview I saw a few antique handsaw's by local artist Owen Dixon. My mother-in-law introduced me to his work last year & I knew that we had to try & get her one of his pieces for Mother's Day.
I had to include one more photo from his website. A 1957 Chevy Chieftain door. Remember this is free hand plasma cutting, how talented is he!
Can't wait until next year! If you are a local artist or collector make sure you mark your calendars for next May.
