soft heart

Opening Final Friday May 26th is "soft heart," a show of new work by Katie Swartz. Katie's been soft-heartedly gaining a fan club for a long time in this city, especially recently when she started displaying her crocheted animal companions. They will be making an appearance at the gallery next month along with their ceramic counterparts. These pieces are genuine and whimsical, they invite you into a close and comfy world- the soft heart of the artist. As Katie's friend and former roommate, it is so exciting to have a show of just her work in the gallery, and I hope a lot of people can stop by to see why. If you can't make it to the opening, come to the Closing, Tuesday, June 26th, to meet Katie and see her creations.

People enjoying the first of the season's Second Sundays on Main (SSOM) inside and outside of the gallery!

The Fabulous Iceburg spinning soul at the Anniversary Party

Anniversary @ 1305

Friday night was crazy at the gallery, but for me it was just an extension of the whole week. A lot of work went into getting up the show, "rivers within." I knew it was a bit presumptuous to host a show of all my work on my anniversary, but I thought it was do-able. It was, just barely. I had to clean up the wreckage today from all the food and alcohol, the gallery smelled so awful. Today the week might finally hit me, I feel like I've been rode hard and put away wet for real.
To top it all off my landlord borrowed the mop, so for now the gallery floor is a bit like the floor of a sugar mill.
I hope I get some people in this month, I haven't really been as prolific in my own work since the gallery opened, so it's been a while for some to have seen my pieces. I think the show looks great and am very proud of myself.
Hope I see some people I've missed. Tues-Sat 11-3 I'm here.
