Busy Weekend

The Sneak Preview Party Friday night at Voilart! Art Gallery was great fun. Many people who could not attend the Ocala Art Festival Saturday or Sunday enjoyed seeing the new paintings in the relaxed atmosphere. No parking problems and no heat was certainly a plus.

While I was preparing for the party Friday, my husband set my tent up at the art festival. Then after the party we packed up all the paintings and headed for the show grounds with them. Very early Saturday morning we hung the art and got ready for the crowd that always turns out for this outstanding event.

The people were great...the sales were great
and I even won the

Award Of Excellence prize!
Yep, this is me with the Cheshire Cat Grin.

All in all it was an exciting...and exhausting weekend. Now comes the task of putting the gallery back together and getting the paintings ready for the next show.

Catching Up

Voilart! Art Gallery and Working Studio opened with great fan fare at our gala Ribbon Cutting Ceremoney September 4. Many collectors, family and friends attended including County Commissioner Barbara Fitos, County Administrator Lee Niblock, Marion Cultural Alliance Director Nancy Ledding and Dr. Lofgren, Director of the Appleton Museum of Art.

Our first month has been successful. Many clients have dropped by to see the gallery and take home paintings for their personal collections. People visiting downtown discover us and walk in, delighted to find top quality art with the added bonus of visiting with us (the artists) and watching us paint. All in all, my partner Sharon Crute and I have had a wonderful month and are looking foreward to the future. Thanks to all who have supported us in the venture!!
