One important lesson we learned the hard way was not to run the gallery like a classic retail store. The first year we committed to long hours, 11 am - 6 pm. Wednesdays through Fridays. This put a strangle-hold on us as artists...our temprament did not fit with that kind of strict schedule. We changed our hours to 2 pm - 6 pm Wed - Thur. making a huge difference in our lives. And, our clients don't seem to have been affected.
I am look forward to a wonderful year # 2. Sales through the holidays were great and I have several commissioned lined up. You will be hearing about my busy show schedule as things continue to develope, the first being at Thornebrook Gallery in Gainesville titled "Southern Exposure".
