Hello everyone,

Fall is officially upon us!   October is Here!!  October is a busy month in the art world.  National Picture Framing month and also includes American Craft week!    

American Craft Week is Oct. 2 – Oct. 11th this year.  It’s an opportunity to celebrate the work of American Artists.  We are blessed to carry the work of hundreds of American Artists all year long here at the Gallery.  Most recent additions to the shop for fall are Jack Pine Pumpkins, Luke Adams Pumpkins, MJ Smith Pumpkin collages, Bev’s velvet Pumpkins.  it’s a Pumpkin Patch here!  We also have gotten in some beautiful Fall Flowers, some awesome Clocks, fabulous Scarves in hand painted boxes, glass Angels and Sterling and Hand painted jewelry!  

Autumn Day

Reminiscent of the perfect “Autumn Day.” A hand-sewn beauty, made from Battik fabric. A sweet little pumpkin amid falling leaves.

October is also National Picture Framing month.  We are excited for framing this fall because we added another Frame company to our Design Wall.  Now we have even more frames to choose from to help make your art a Masterpiece!  Custom framing does more than put a frame around your art,  it changes the presentation because it enhances the artwork by finishing it.   It will also preserve your art by keeping it safe from the elements.  Then you can hang it at home and enjoy it!

One of my favorite things to do in the Fall is be outside.  I love the crisp air, the rustling of leaves and the incredible colors!  I literally can’t get enough of it.  It even influences the colors I choose to use in my home.  I hope you have the opportunity to get out and enjoy this beautiful time of the year.  And if you are out and about (or would prefer a Zoom appointment), stop in and enjoy the work of the artists that create the beautiful items we have at the shop.  

Happy Fall,
