Though this is the first post for this blog, we've been working on the gallery for some time now and it is finally coming together. This Wednesday we are having the floors finished. Already the space has been painted, the new lighting systems installed, the new hanging system has also been installed, and we have a small table to use as a desk.
We are attempting to open on the first night of the Festa di Val d'Arbia on the evening of Friday September 18, 2009. This will be a painting show of works depicting views and persons from the area by artists Maddine Insalaco and Joe Vinson. We do hope that you join us that night if you can.
More information on the gallery will be posted as available. The gallery will be open during the weekend days and evenings of the festival subject to available persons for gallery sitting. Normal hours will be announced. Maddine and I are primarily painters and we will not maintain normal store hours. However, we will be available most of the time to show the gallery and works by appointment. As we chart out our course on this project, I'm sure that we will begin to offer some continuing regular events. It is our hope that the feedback that we receive as we move forward will guide us to our future goals.
