Diane and I got together this morning in a small coffee shop in Glens Falls to talk about the online gallery. It must be the right decision because we both came easily to the same place.
Diane and I work so well together it seems natural that we would try to do something together. But when we thought about what we would have to do to have an online gallery we both felt it would take away from our own work in both time and creative energy. We thought it would be fun and we could do it successfully but then we questioned if it was what we wanted to do. We both decided that what we really wanted to do, was to focus on our own work.
So instead of having an on going online gallery we’ll have an online Pig Barn Gallery Exhibit. We haven’t figured out all the details yet, but we’re thinking of two online shows and two actual shows in the Pig Barn Gallery each year. Our first online show will be in February or March 2012. I have a show in the Pig Barn (details to come) planned for the beginning of June. We’ll do another show next Columbus Day weekend at the Pig Barn Gallery along with an online show using some of the same artists for people who can’t travel to the Gallery.
We were both excited leaving the coffee shop, looking forward to working on the first online Pig Barn Gallery Exhibit and getting back to the studio. Before going home I stopped in Finders Keepers, a local Consignment Shop, and got this great pink shirt with shoes on it… might make some great potholders.
