This afternoon I made a trip down to Tino’s Fine Art & Frames to deliver a few pots and was really impressed by all the new work that is on display. The gallery is looking FULL. Rick was busy hanging and arranging work and making the last minute preparations for his official Grand Opening & Memorial Day open house this Saturday from 2 – 8 pm. The public is welcome to come out, enjoy the art, and meet the artists. Refreshments and nibbles will be served.

I was excited to see that there are three new artists who now have work in the gallery. Talis Jayme (watercolors, acrylics, & pastels), Gary Reynolds (Fractal Art), and Erik “Turtle” Olsen (Metal work sculpture).

In addition to the open house, the neighboring Sunset Cork Room will have the wonderful Lisa Zanghi providing their live entertainment that night.

So come out and finish the day off with some flair. Hope to see you there!

As the propane kiln is finally on for a “soak” I thought I would sit down. put my feet up, and write a little bit about what is going on here locally this weekend.

As usual, this Mother’s Day weekend is going to be a busy one. As you can see from this lovely poster to the right, Foley’s Performing Arts Center is hosting their 34th Annual Art in the Park juried art show, May 13 & 14th in John P. Foley Park, at the corner of Hwys 59 & 98. If the weather holds out and it is anything like last year, it should prove to be a lovely weekend. Please, Come and join us!

Something else that is going on is ArtsAlive! on Conti Street put on by Main Street Mobile, Saturday May 13th from 2 to 8:30 pm. This bi-annual event put on by Main Street Mobile, is on Conti Street, on/beside Cathedral Square. Its is a pretty neat event. We were disappointed to learn we had a scheduling conflict and we couldn’t take part on Saturday (the Foley show plus Lowell’s daughter Nissa is getting married on late Saturday afternoon), but we hope to do it again in the fall.

Hope to see you in Foley sometime over the weekend :).
