So it has been an incredibly busy summer with our friends at Borderland Arts. As usual I am trying to find the time to slow down and write about it all. But here are some highlights;
Our current gallery is in Greenway Books. Our host Jane and her daughter have been fantastic at helping us feel at home in their space, and it truly feels like a partnership. We’ve already begun to get the wheels turning to create fun events that will incorporate both the bookstore and gallery so stay tuned for more information. Our official grand opening will be announced soon.
Frame UP and Art Supplies owner Karen is continuing her support of Borderland Arts by extending a 10% off framing for any unframed items purchased at our new gallery space. We are going to incorporate unframed prints for purchase that will be eligible for the discount at Frame UP in addition to any of the unframed canvas for sale.
I want to encourage Borderland artists to promote themselves on our Facebook page and website – borderlandarts.net. We want to know the shows you are in and what you have all been up to. I know everyone has been really busy this summer and maybe not taking advantage of posting as much as they were, but your involvement is all the more reason to get in some advertising and tell us what you’ve been up to! I’ll start… I’m proud to say that I was selected for participation in the Marquette Regional History Museum’s exhibit “Kissing the Water”. Along with a diptych drawing in graphite, I have a fly rod on display that I built from scraps, and a very early lancewood rod circa 1900 from my private collection.
As always if you would like to be more of a participant than a spectator within our group, there are opportunities to serve in various positions. Your talents and ideas could be just what we have been waiting for to take us a few steps further down our path of artistic endeavors.
Thank you as always for your support!
