GALLERY 108 on Roanoke City Market

Hey Friends, I worked at Gallery 108 this past Saturday and thought you might enjoy a few photos of the work showing there. Top photo is from Whitney Brock, our featured artist this month. She does more than just rocks. Her work includes landscapes and still life but this is a large impressive piece. I like her rocks a lot.
Here is the front view of a gorgeous bear by Gail Geer. I forgot to write down the type of stone. There are beautiful streaks of a pinkish-mauvish color in this stone.
The back view. Gail is the Best sculptor I have ever encountered and she sells like crazy!
The artist in this co-operative gallery take turns displaying in the windows. This window is Sheila Wiley's. She has a vibrant palette and makes a lot of Roanoke City scenes.
This window belongs to Linda Overstreet. She works with hand dyed fabric. Makes quilts, and wall hangings and bible/book covers and journals. I see a small purse in there also. Her stuff would make great gifts for almost anyone you can think of.

Gallery 108 is right beside the Roanoke City Market Bldg. which is being renovated starting yesterday. So streets next to the gallery will be closed and parking will be harder than ever! So friends try to get downtown and visit the gallery and help us stay alive until this mess is completed in May 2011(fingers are crossed). I know an amusement park would be more fun, but you need to buy gifts once in a while or re-decorate !

Maybe you would like to visit the Taubman Museum while there also.

Happy Trails !

Hey Friends, I've been on vacation !! In the Bahama's !! Earl drove me away !!
NOT really . This has just been one of the worst years on my record book.
2010 will soon be over, still have to go through the dreaded winter though.

In the mean time, thought you might want to see a couple of Sweet Buns ! Of course there have been many wonderful times this year, these photos prove that. And I have managed to paint an hour or two nearly every day. I'll be posting some paintings soon.
Hope all of you, my friends, have been enjoying your summer. Sincerely.
Happy Trails !
