Sunlight in the Gallery

The gallery looks beautiful this time of year.  Strong sunlight sneaks in under the awning and bounces off the 100-year old polished wood floor, giving the whole space a perfect “artist’s light.”  Coffee and cookies await guests – a recent addition to our daily customer service list. On the wall – that beautiful, historic, absolutely authentic gallery way – Larry Graham’s photos and (surprise) rather abstract paintings hang. Good stuff.  Graham was our professor at Ball State University, and we are so pleased to exhibit his work. He has many followers, friends, former students, and they still trickle in, catching these last days of his show, up through November 30th.

Then comes the Annual Salon Show, opening on December 6th! We represent two dozen artists (listed below), and for the Annual Salon, we exhibit up to 3 pieces from each of them.  This is one of the times we are most pleased to have a hanging system in place on our gallery wall. Trying to arrange up to 50 pieces of art is tough, but it would ruin our beloved wall if we were placing nails each time, and we don’t have to do that. (We installed a Walker Hanging System years ago; no nails!) The Annual Salon is typically our greatest challenge, as far as art hangings go, but the resulting exhibit is always breathtaking. Fortunately, the exhibit stays up for two months, through January 31, 2013.  Pieces that sell, in the meantime, can be easily removed and some minor tweaking will correct the arrangement of paintings, drawings and prints.

Please consider bringing any of your out-of-town guests downtown for a gallery visit, complete with coffee and cookies. They will get a good look at the dynamic art scene we enjoy here in Muncie and Delaware County. Perhaps they’ll even want to take some art home! GFAF artists include: Kim Anderson (pottery), Scott Anderson (painting), Sue Beach (pottery), Carol Burt (pottery), David Dale (pastels), Eric Ernstberger (acrylics), Jim Faulkner (watercolors), Charlene George (oils), Brian Gordy (watercolors), Corey Hagelberg (printmaking), David Johnson (printmaking), Sarojini Johnson (printmaking), Suzanne Marie Lambert (acrylics), Paul Laseau (watercolor), Cheryl Anne Lorance (bronze & glass sculptures) Jan McCune (jewelry), Alan Patrick (oils), John Peterson (pottery), Martin Price (pottery), Margie Prim (oils) and Carol Strock-Wasson (oils).

Little Sips of Frames

picture frame design - gold

Gold picture frames. That doesn’t have to mean what you think it means.

Examine as you would a good glass of Scotch…

   ~ Tasting notes: Pitted rust, bacon, and just a hint of smoke.

   ~ Art pairings:  Good with hearty paintings of any style;

             Try it with a bold, modernistic portrait,

             or traditional still life… Delicious!
