A Collaborative Exhibit

This weekend, as our town celebrated its annual Holiday Stroll, our newly formed Artists' Collaborative was given the opportunity to have an exhibit of artwork in an unoccupied store. We set to work on Friday, cleaning and decorating a long untended space. Many hands made light work, and the place was transformed by opening time on Saturday! We named it Gallery 39, inspired by the store's street number.


The exhibit went from 3 to 7 PM. The main streets were closed off, there was music and food to enjoy, a Hat Parade, musical entertainment and all sorts of events in the town.


In our cozy temporary gallery, people gathered, looked at artwork, enjoyed some hot cider and snacks,


listened to seasonal music, and had a lovely time!






I was excited to show some of my work,


and, all in all, it was a memorable evening!


Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

JUDY,
It looks like so much fun. I wish I could do that with you. Reminds me of my painting class days. We would do something similar every year in an old Mall that we made cozy and inviting. It's the small things that bring so much spirit and warmth to the holidays.
