Over 160 Entries being Juried for TREES' show!

Well, we're guessing that every 'call-for-entries' show will just keep getting Bigger. Even though I held back many potential entries at the signing, we still brought in SO many that we KNOW that some will have to be put aside. We're in the process of turning our 2nd floor "over-Flow" gallery room into a well-lit, beautifully painted ROOM THREE Gallery, to accomodate the Theme Show selections in the strongest way, but we must eliminate perhaps 20 pieces. At this count, the number of Artists is also at an all-time high...57! We'll have our Final Number of pieces we can hang by this weekend, the 7th. We'll call the artists to alert them, then, and the art could be picked up any day the week before Opening, as we'll be here working from 11AM to6PM each Day!...or one could wait until the 14th.
Meanwhile, we're thrilled with the turn-out, and with meeting so many 'new' artists, and with the wonderful array of approaches to the subject. Didn't expect so many Sculptures! There are several that are Figurative, and a few that are even whimsical.
Mailed out our lovely Post card yesterday, designed by new Intern, Becca Buonopane...using her powerful photograph. Announcing the Opening - August 14th, from 4 to 6; with a short Poetry event at 5PM.
We have also sent off all our Digital Pages of the original BOOK for the "as Lovely as a Tree" show, which includes the Art work and/or Poetry of 20 artist friends of the Gallery, as well as some classic favorite poems and quotes.
This book will be in a surprising format that requires a lot of handwork from our team of four, at the last minute, to have it ready for the Opening.
We expect a CROWD, and will hope for a cooler day than the BIRD SHOW opening!
