My Visit to Main Street Arts in Clifton Springs

Take a look at these photos . . .

Pretty cool, eh?

Yesterday afternoon, my husband, our three little girls, and I traveled to Clifton Springs in order to take a look at all of the artwork on display at a gallery, there, called Main Street Arts. I have a painting on display there titled, "Lemons in a Copper Bowl", as well, which is apart of the "Small Works" exhibit.

Not only did we take a look downstairs at the small works exhibit, but we also took a look upstairs at the many other works of art and photography. We had a lot of fun and the girls really got a kick out of the ice sculptures outside the gallery.

The director of the gallery is Bradley Butler, and I was happy to meet him, as well. He was nothing like I expected though. I had been exchanging emails with him ever since I had expressed interest in wanting to be apart of his small works show, and I had imagined him being at least in his fifty's or sixties, grey haired, and older. But to my surprise Bradley Butler is a very young man, probably younger than me, and it's so cool to see someone so young, be successful in art. I'm really impressed!

I was fortunate to have Bradley accept my "Lemons in Copper Bowl" painting into the show, as an accident happened with the original painting that had gotten accepted, as I mistakenly tore a hole in the canvas of the painting while trying to prep the piece for hanging. I then sent an email to Bradley, explaining the accident and attached, to the email, images of a few more of my other paintings and he, fortunately, decided that he would still take another painting which turned out to be "Lemons in a Copper Bowl."

I was told yesterday, by another young woman who works at the gallery that Bradley really loves the Lemon painting so things worked out! Yay!

Anyway, here is the original painting that had gotten accepted before the tear:

And here is the Lemon painting again which now hangs at Main Street Arts  . . .

Well, this kind of turned out to be somewhat of a long post! I had intended to share with you some of my new paintings that I have been working on. But, I'll have to show you them tomorrow, instead, as I like to keep my posts short and sweet, and I fear this one may be a little too long.

Anyway, til tomorrow! Take care and God bless! Later fellow art lovers!
